It is both Resistant to impact and Flexible to work with. Other beneficial properties include Thermal Insulation reducing condensation with in the Boat and Sound Insulation properties reducing that unwanted Engine Noise. The material is also Lightweight for easy transportatation.
Floteak is sold in bespoke panels produced from a template. The template may be a more traditional physical template that is converted to a machine file for CNC routering or manufactured from a manufacturers CAD drawing file. Generally a cardboard or plastic check template is machined to test that the product is machined correctly and loose laid aboard the boat before machining the Floteak product. This method lends itself to fully margined deck panels.
Floteak is sold in 1 metre wide 6mm or 8mm thick sheets with caulking grooves running the full length of the Roll. This lends itself to unmargined panels that can be cut to shape off the roll.
We supply Decking Strips 45mm and 120mm wide and 10 metres long that can be used by Fitters to Fabricate Swept Decks on Boats using Floteak.
