What is UltraDeck ?
UltraDeck® is a unique premium blend of closed cell, high quality PE foam produced for the harsh marine environment. It has very high UV resistance, it’s UV tested to over triple the best marine upholstery vinyl with no fade. Being that it is closed cell, it does not absorb, so it will never smell and is stain resistant and cleans up very easy. It provides an excellent shock absorbent, sounds deadening, non-slip, customizable surface for any vessel. The product is backed with the thickest, highest grade acrylic-based 3M pressure sensitive adhesive providing a simple yet durable installation.
What is the life span of your products?
With average use and care UltraDeck® will last 7-10 + years. Longer life can be expected if the boat is covered and/or well taken care. With a few of our pacific northwest private fishing charter clients now over the 3800+ hr mark of use on their vessel and their UltraDeck in fantastic condition we are confident you are purchasing the most durable product possible.
What is product warranty ?
Ultradeck® itself carries a 5 year warranty from premature product break down. This excludes physical abuse, solvent/oil/fuel damage and staining. As well as incorrect installation resulting in adhesive issues.
What colors are available?
Is it customizable?
Absolutely, we can produce the package with whatever design/ logo’s you would like with added design costs OR pick from our stocked patterns as well. All of our packages are client pre-approved with a proof of the kit so we can be 110% sure it is exactly what you have in mind.
Will it stain?
The product is very stain resistant, food, beverages, dirt, fishing mess all clean out of UltraDeck® if they are handled properly and in a timely manor.
How do you clean UltraDeck?
We recommend Simple Green HD and a medium stiff deck brush ( both available at home depot) to clean the product. Mist cleaner on, let soak, brush with a medium/firm brush with the grain, rinse. Do not use a pressure washer in close contact, acid based cleaners or solvents with UltraDeck® as it will damage the product.
What can I install it over?
UltraDeck® bonds over many clean and properly prepped surfaces. Gel Coat, smooth & nonskid (with prep). Painted surfaces, must be completely off gassed if freshly painted. Aluminum, smooth and checker plated. We have also had good success bonding to the textured vinyl floors commonly seen in river/jet boats, with the correct prep. Contact us for more info or questions if your unsure of your substrate.
How do I get a flooring package produced?
If you want a kit produced and installed professionally please see our dealer map and contact your nearest installer. We can also handle all your needs at our facility in Vernon BC if it is convenient. Otherwise we can assist you with a DIY process which is relatively straightforward if you have a good eye for detail.
Do you have my boat on file?
Our file base of stocked boats grows weekly, feel free to send us an email to see if we already have a cad image of your vessel on hand. Otherwise the boat will have to be brought onsite or to a dealer for templating.
Can I template and install the product myself?
If you have a good eye for detail and can follow our directions, absolutely. We have PDFs to cover both processes here - downloads. Template kits are available by request with information on the space such as rough SQ ft required. Feel free to email us for more info.
How is it removed?
Care must be taken when removing the product. If the surface is painted, you must check in a hidden area to see its resistance to solvents. With gel coat or aluminum, UltraDeck® can be removed by getting a pad edge up with a putty knife (plastic or metal) and slowly working the mat with mineral spirits. The surface being warm assists with the process as well.
There will be residual adhesive left behind, soaking a rag with the solvent and keeping the surface wet will break down the PSA in 10-15 min. Then the using a plastic putty knife the PSA is easily removed.
What does the product cost?
Cost varies per job as the product is billed out per machined sheet (39”x79”) and what we can fit into the space. 599$ per machined sheet, cost includes kit design time (excluding extensive logos as noted below) , machining, premium industrial 3M adhesive backer. Boat Branding logos are free of charge with exception of our partnered factory installed builders. Relatively straightforward graphics are included, however super complex or custom made graphics or kits that have a high percentage of the space covered in graphics will have additional artwork and/or milling time to produce and can be quoted per project.
Kit cost example, the average mid sized tow boat (20' to 24' ) package of grid, pass through, tops of gunnels bow/stern, cockpit floor runs $2369 ( $1850 USD ) on average. Plus tax and install.
Do you except new resellers / dealers / builders?
Absolutely, If your in the marine industry and have a excellent eye for detail we are always looking for quality facilities to carry our product. Contact us for more information and a dealer application.
