A new addition to the Parkside portfolio, Exadeck is a long-lasting vitrified porcelain alternative to external composite, wood and aluminium decking systems. Bringing speed of installation thanks to a customised clip fitting system, Exadeck is resistant to extreme weather conditions and can withstand heavy traffic locations. It is the ideal solution for external decking and terraces within commercial and residential projects.

Frost proof and 100 per cent colourfast, as well as resistant to heat and staining, the hardwearing porcelain surface is easy to maintain and comes with R11 slip-resistance. It has been successfully used in a wide range of projects including two luxury residential developments at The Dumont at Embankment, London and a 128 square metre ground level installation at Nine Elm, Battersea, London.

With an A1 non-combustible status, the product can also be used in Highrise buildings as an alternative to aluminium and cement fibre decking. Thanks to the optional pedestal/rail system, it is ideal for used on flat roofs and is a good way of overcoming uneven surfaces. The system also provides easy access to pipe and cabling with individual planks quickly lifted and clicked back into place, making it ideal for use in commercial buildings and outdoor swimming pools.

“Exadeck expands our range of technical tile solutions with a system that brings numerous advantages to outdoor and rooftop terraces, decking areas and outdoor swimming pool surrounds,” discussed Jonathan Wiles, Director of Commercial Sales, Parkside. “With fast and easy click fitting that allows for easy access, as well as a rail that can be bonded or screwed in place, the system is a project-proven alternative that comes with a much longer life than composite or wood-based decking systems.”

Available exclusively from Parkside Architectural Tiles, Exadeck provides six authentic wood-effect designs to choose from, including oak, maple, teca, antico, natural and grey. The planks can be installed linear or staggered for a range of decorative woodgrain looks that bring a high-quality appearance to outside spaces.

“I am delighted to be partnering up with the people at Parkside,” added Wayne Barrett, Sales Director, Exadeck. ” Our Exadeck porcelain decking has revolutionised the construction sector and is becoming the best alternative to conventional decking thanks to its extreme resistance to wind, fire, non-stain, and non-fade properties.”

Unlike wood-based and composite systems, Exadeck isn’t susceptible to movement with changes in humidity, doesn’t absorb moisture or fade in sunlight; helping it to maintain performance and appearance throughout its lifetime.
