Aluminium building products manufacturer Deco Australia has unveiled its new internal flooring system, DecoFloor, which offers the look of timber with the durability of aluminium.
Designed to replicate the form, feel and appearance of real timber floorboards, DecoFloor is made from solid, powder-coated aluminium for a durable and long-lasting flooring solution for any space and environment.
It is completely non-combustible, moisture and termite resistant, and, unlike traditional timber and laminate floors, it will never rot, warp or swell.
DecoFloor’s long, 5.4-metre extruded aluminium floorboards offer precision and consistency across each board, allowing for effective design planning and exceptional material utilisation with minimal waste. Their innovative interlocking design allows the boards to simply ‘snap’ together for a seamless finish with no unsightly nails or trims.
Deco Australia’s research and development manager and DecoFloor designer Richard Hamber says that DecoFloor will revolutionise the way specifiers, builders and installers approach floor covering solutions. “This is one of a kind in flooring design,” he says. “We designed the DecoFloor system with simplicity and ease in mind. The aluminium floorboards simply snap together with an interlocking design and, when coupled with the realistic wood grain finish, the result is ground breaking."
To achieve its natural timber appearance, DecoFloor utilises DECO’s innovative sublimation powder coating technology to create a super durable and realistic timber-look finish across each floorboard. Available in 25 premium DecoWood woodgrain finishes, including popular Australian natural hardwoods and other exotic timber species, DecoFloor offers a colour to match every décor.
Best of all, DecoFloor never needs sanding, staining or oiling, and requires very little maintenance. DecoFloor has a P2 slip resistance rating and is suitable for a wide range of residential and commercial applications, including areas where a non-combustible material must be used. It can be installed directly over any suitable base, including concrete, and a flooring underlay is recommended.
DecoFloor is designed and manufactured in Australia. Patent is pending on the product.
