Compared to Similar Products, Deck-Top's Surface Stays Anywhere Between 30º – 50º Cooler
One of the worst parts of deck ownership is walking barefoot on a hot deck surface. Deck-Top provides a unique surface that is always cool on your feet, even in direct sunlight. In fact, our studies have shown that Deck-Top’s surface consistently stays anywhere between 30º–50º cooler in direct sunlight when compared to wood and composite materials alone.
Deck-Top is made with special agents called “heat stabilizers” that join together with PVC compounds to prevent the heat-caused degradation of plastics. Heat stabilizers work by stopping thermal oxidation or by attacking the decomposed products of oxidation. With the addition of UVA and UVB inhibitors along with these heat-stabilizing compounds, Deck-Top stays cool and rarely reaches over 96º even on the hottest days. Besides staying cool, these additives prevent any material breakdown that would normally be caused by nature’s elements.
Deck-Top Joins the Durability of PVC with the Structural Strength of Wood & Composite
Only the Deck-Top system is engineered to allow wood or composites and PVC to perform in harmony with each other by combining the best features of both. PVC decking products are beautiful and low-maintenance but have little structural strength. Treated wood decks and docks have excellent structural strength but are high-maintenance and degrade over time. The Deck-Top system offers the best features of both materials by joining the two together in a beautiful, low-maintenance solution with exceptional durability and structural strength.
Concerned About Moisture & Wood Rot?
Deck-Top is frequently asked, “Will Deck-Top trap moisture and rot my wood?” The answer is simply no, and here’s a picture to prove it! This picture shows what a piece of 5/4” treated wood looks like after being covered with PVC for over 10 years. Notice how the wood shows no signs of splitting, cracking, or rotting? That’s because Deck-Top protects your wood from the true source of decay – the sun. The sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays can wreak havoc on wooden structures, but when covered with PVC, your deck or dock’s lifespan is significantly extended. See more photos here.
Deck-Top is designed with special spacing to mitigate any potentially trapped moisture. As moisture collects under Deck-Top, moisture migration will occur naturally on key areas not covered by Deck-Top; namely from the sides, ends, and undersides of the planks. This ensures that moisture will not get trapped in between the planks and cause damage or wood rot to your understructure.
