Neaco’s Neatdek 188 is an innovative metal decking system with drainage gaps concealed below the surface to provide an unrivalled combination of privacy, low maintenance and safety underfoot.
With a unique T-bar grille design which appears to be closed but is actually open, Neatdek 188 aluminium decking completely restricts the view from above and below and keeps litter and other items on the surface for easy cleaning. The absence of gaps on the foot contact area also makes it safe to walk in any type of footwear, including stiletto heels.
Alan Green, Managing Director at Neaco, said: “Neatdek 188 is a major step forward in metal decking design. The gap-free surface makes it ideal for balcony flooring because the restricted view maintains total privacy. For regular decking applications, the T-bar profile provides excellent drainage and ventilation but there is no problem with litter falling through and building up underneath and similarly there is no danger of accidentally dropping valuable items below. Neatdek 188 also offers a significant advantage over regular decking and metal grating with its safe footing making it an excellent option for all types of flooring, including bridges and public spaces where pedestrian safety is paramount.”
“Like all Neaco aluminium open grille systems, Neatdek 188 decking is lightweight yet strong and durable with a patented swage-locked construction between bars which enables high structural efficiency. It is also non-toxic, non-combustible, corrosive-free, 100 per cent recyclable and easy to install with low-energy construction methods. Modular panels are precision-manufactured off site and provide straightforward assembly with no welding required.”
