As the world slowly returns to a sense of normality, we are very excited to announce that we will be attending a number of UK industry events for the remainder of 2021. It has been a difficult time for everyone the last two years and we are feeling very grateful at the prospect of meeting people within the industry again. To celebrate this return to social events, we will be showcasing one of our most popular products: GRAD®, the ‘Hidden Fix’ Decking System.
Where we will be
UK Construction Week, NEC Birmingham (5th – 7th October)
Landscape Industry Tradeshow, NEC Birmingham (3rd – 4th November)
London Build Expo, Olympia London (17th – 18th November)
Over the next few months, we will be attending these events and offering you a hands-on look at the innovative GRAD® decking system.
You can find us at our bespoke GRAD® Stand at each of these shows headed by our UK Sales Rep, Craig Eardley. We highly recommend you pop-in to some of these industry shows, as they are the perfect insight into the latest design, build and product innovation.
Get a first-hand look at GRAD®
GRAD® is a truly ‘invisible fixings’ decking system, using innovative design to improve your installations. Through the use of a ‘clip grip’ design, not only are you able to achieve a smoother finish, but your decking can also be installed twice as fast as traditional methods.
GRAD® clips dig right into the heart of your boards, meaning that once locked in there is no fear of them becoming dislodged. They’re also easy to remove through the use of a special tool, allowing you to lift them without marking or damaging any of the boards.
Perhaps most importantly, GRAD® decking systems can be fitted onto conventional joists or mounted onto a bespoke aluminium support rail system. It can even be applied without pedestals (with build-up heights of just 40mm).
Looking for the perfect finish?
The Grad® system offers a choice of ‘clip ready’ timber deck boards – these are all specially treated softwoods (with performance guarantees which exceed most hardwoods) and are currently available in Thermo-Pine, Thermo-Ash, Kebony and Accoya. We are all aware by now of the common issues decking can bring with it. That’s why Grad® timber deck boards are free from grooves with a very slightly convex surface – this prevents ‘cupping’ of the timber and eliminates the ‘water pooling’ often seen with flat timber boards.
