Aluminium decking with off-site construction capabilities
With a complete overhaul to building regulations in recent years, all those involved in the construction supply chain need to be fully conversant to ensure compliance with the latest regulations. Having trusted manufacturers onboard to supply has never been as important to contractors and developers. As part of the £200m Epwin Group Plc, Adek’s aluminium decking not only comes with financial security but also a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the supply of products to the construction industry.
We understand that it is problematic to source materials that meet legislation requirements, which is why we have introduced our aluminium decking, a non-combustible, A2fl-s1 fire rated system to meet your project needs.
We have worked closely with Developers and Contractors to create a system that understands your challenges and concerns, which has led to the creation of our cost-effective, durable and low maintenance and high-performance aluminium decking range.
Adek's RIBA Approved CPD For Fire Rated Decking
Adek is committed to helping architects & specifiers alike, through CPD learning, in the use of aluminium decking for balconies, walkways and terraces. There is now a plethora of legislation, design guidance and fire testing surrounding the topic of non-combustible decking which can be challenging to review.
This is why we have developed a RIBA approved CPD: “A Specifiers Guide To Non-Combustible Decking Systems” which provides you with an overview of all the different factors you need to consider when choosing the flooring material for your next project.

Adek High-Performance Aluminium Decking Systems
Our 147 ranges replicate the width of the majority of timber decking currently in place within balconies and terraces, making it ideal for retrofit projects.
Whilst our 295 ranges allow for rapid installation times not only because of the board width itself, but also because of the increased fixing centres of up to 1200mm.
Additionally our Comfort Grip range is a completely unique aesthetic in the market, offering a sleek, foot friendly feel whilst still obtaining the classification of low slip potential when tested to BS7976-2.
Prefabricated & Crane Installation
Adek’s aluminium decking has also been designed to allow for off-site construction making the systems ideal for balcony subcontractors. Integral to the entire Adek range is an extra wide fixing channel that allows an eye bolt to be directly secured to the balcony substructure, meaning that all Adek deck boards can be fitted off-site and still allow for the completed balcony to be craned into position. Once in situ and the eye bolts removed, a channel cover is snapped into place covering both the eye bolt holes and the Adek fixings.
Adek have developed a Technical Hub to allow you to browse documentation, drawings and supportive information about our Adek systems all in one place to assist you with the design of your decking project. This includes a full suite of detailed technical datasheets which are available to download.
