Charcoal Decking & Argent Cladding Project

The brief involved specifying a product that sat well in the surroundings of the lake and forest. The client didn’t want to opt for a timber material for longevity and maintenance purposes. The Argent Panel Cladding gave the appearance of timber without the ongoing maintenance issues.

The architect for the project added a nice detail of taking the panel cladding up from the walls and onto the roof. The panel cladding, although 98% watertight is used as a decorative material only for the roof, underneath the panelling, sits a single-ply membrane covered with EPDM. The look has become very popular over the last 12 months with our existing customers. 

Additional Information

The Clarity Charcoal decking was specified for the flooring due to the good Anti-Slip values it achieves. See Clarity Slip Test Results.
The decking was installed on our Forte 125 x 50mm plastic joists and 100 x 100mm plastic posts used as supports. 

The benefits: Clarity – 20 year warranty, Forma – 25-year warranty, low-maintenance (only simple cleaning needed – no painting, staining or sealing. Forma is a guaranteed UV stable, secret fix installation. Quick/easy installation.
