A2fl-s1 / A2-s1, d0 fire rated decking
It is now a legal requirement for all materials in the external envelope of a building, over 11m in height, to be non-combustible.
The resulting implications for Housing Associations and Local Authorities has been wide reaching with a call for the refurbishment of housing stocks across the UK where combustible materials are present in building envelopes.
Adek is a non-combustible decking system that is A2fl-s1 & A2-s1,d0 fire rated. Its development was focused on creating a non-combustible decking system, flexible enough to replace existing combustible decking, whilst still looking stunning and achieving long-lasting properties.
All our Adek aluminium systems are fully compliant with the latest building regulations and have been designed in accordance with BS 8579:2020 – the design code for balconies.
Adek's CPD for fire rated decking
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 and understand.
Our CPD “A specifier’s guide to non-combustible decking systems” has been designed to support architects and specifiers as they navigate this ever-changing topic. It provides an overview of the factors to consider when choosing high-rise decking, including:
- Changes to the building regulations and legislation that have implications on products used in the external envelope of buildings
- Suitability of aluminium in construction products
- Fire legislation surrounding balconies on high-rise developments
- An explanation on Class A2 fire-rating and the differences between A2fl-s1 and A2-s1, d0 classifications
- Understanding slip resistance for non-combustible aluminium decking

Adek A2fl-s1 / A2-s1, d0 fire rated decking
All Adek profiles have undergone independent third-party testing and have been classified as A2fl-s1 and A2-s1, d0. This means they are non-combustible, their smoke emissions are weak or absent and they do not create flaming droplets. All Adek non-combustible decking systems are therefore appropriate for use on balconies and roof terraces in buildings over 11m in height.
