Our signature steel subframe is one component which sets us apart from other decking companies who use traditional wood as a build base. We never use wood in any of our decks so that we can continue to produce a range of decking that will outperform any of its wooden counterparts without the need for continual seasonal repairs.
Our galvanised steel frame is formed and cut in-house giving us complete quality control at all times and allows us to manufacture decks of all dimensions at the push of a button. What’s more, as our steel is 100% recyclable, our manufacturing process is much kinder to the environment.
Although, initially a timber frame may seem like a more cost effective alternative to steel the long term benefits are significantly less. Timber encased in PVC rots at an accelerated rate and cannot be treated without dismantling. It also has a damaging effect on the environment unless sourced from a sustainable supply. Our steel frames are so durable and strong they outperform our guarantee year after year.
All of our sundecks are built using salt air treated steel screws and zinc plated hexagonal bolts. We use durable PVC connectors to provide double strength to joints. All of our fixings are concealed leaving a completely streamline finish to the sundeck. We have far exceeded our 10 year structural guarantee and are satisfied that our very first sundecks are still structurally sound to this day.
Our PVC posts and handrails are reinforced with galvanised steel giving them the extra strength and support that is synonymous with all AB Sundecks. All of our posts are fixed with a series of zinc plated hexagonal bolts configured to give the maximum support and are concealed within the structure to cement the streamlined appearance of our sundecks. Our post designs are exclusively owned by AB Sundecks and have been compassionately designed to provide ultimate comfort, grip and appearance.
Being a part time wheelchair user and the rest of the time being on prosthetic legs, it is very important for me to be able to get outside and spend time with my young family.
Their slip resistant, low maintenance decking was the perfect choice for me.
The decking looks fantastic and has really enhanced my life.
