Where to Use Floteak?
Cockpits and other popular uses
Sailboat Cockpit Seating – because Floteak is softer to sit on and does not get hot
Steel Barges – because Floteak has superb insulating properties that reduces condensation
Boats in Hot Climates – because Floteak is cool to walk on
Floteak is not restricted to Boats. It is great for many other applications such as Cruise Ship Decks and Swimming Pool Surrounds.
