Composite Applications For Pool Decking
A poolside deck is the final touch in creating an outdoor paradise. It can be a wonderful place to enjoy some much-needed quality time with friends and family and is an ideal place to relax. Surrounding your pool with a beautiful wood-look deck offers not only function value but property value too. It should be a space that encourages relaxation and be fit for long term durability.
Eva-Last offers two ranges of composite decking; Apex Plus and Infinity each of which could serve as an excellent poolside decking choice. Each range has its own set of advantages that are important to understand when choosing which decking range is best for your specific pool decking project.
Benefits of Eva-Last composite
All Eva-Last composite decking ranges are low-maintenance alternatives to wood that add the beauty of a timber aesthetic to your pool area without the timely (and costly) maintenance of wooden decking. In addition, they each offer lifestyle, safety, and environmental benefits.
All are splinter-free making them ideal for bare feet, slip resistant to help keep little ones safer near the water’s edge, and are moisture resistant to save you the headache of dealing with issues like rotting, warping, splitting, cracking, and twisting. Each Eva-Last decking range also offers stain resistance.
- While normal chlorinated pool water will not affect the deck, contact with harsh chemicals like pool acid may harm the decking profiles, cleaning up any chemical spills immediately should prevent damage.
- Slip resistance is a key safety feature around a pool, laying the deck in such a way that the grain goes against the flow of traffic as opposed to with the grain of the board can further enhance slip resistance.
- Decking in full sun is known to be hot under foot. Since dark colours absorb and retain heat, it is recommended that a lighter colour selection is made for a pool surround.
Apex Plus would, therefore, be our top recommendation when it comes to decking your pool area as it highest slip resistance rating in the Eva-Last decking range, making it the safest product to choose.
If the pool area is an extension of your deck, it is advisable, from an aesthetic perspective, to continue the same decking choice throughout.
