6 :: Professional Grade Decking :: FormulationMost popular deckboards are comprised of various scraps of waste product and wood fibers. This composition is not the ideal performance material.VEKAdeckTM PRO is manufactured with a unique formulation of 100% virgin PVC, performance modifiers and color pigments.Brand XThis blend of quality materials assures that VEKAdeckTM PRO will provide years of low maintenance performance.100% Virgin Vinyl
7 Moisture / Weather Resistant :: Professional Grade Decking ::Moisture / Weather ResistantUnlike most wood fiber composites, VEKAdeckTM PRO does not absorb water and therefore resists mold growth and decay.Brand XDeck samples placed in water for 4 weeksVEKAdeck absorbed 0 water and did not leech color or any other agents into the water.The competition absorbed excessive water and released pigment and tanic acids and other agents into the water.
8 :: Professional Grade Decking :: Brand X126°F188°FHeat Build-UpOn hot sunny summer days most deck surfaces can get very hot, so hot in fact that shoes are required.VEKAdeckTM PRO was designed to remain comfortable even with bare feet on a hot summer day.A heat build up test was conducted in the VEKA Innovations Training Lab shows that VEKAdeckTM PRO is 62 degrees cooler that its’ competition.
9 :: Next Generation Decking :: Safe, Splinter-FreeThe attractive wood grain appearance will not splinter, flake or peel and provides a slip resistant, stain proof surface that kids can safely play on.Heat absorption (Heat Build Up) is among the lowest in the industry.Walk comfortably with bare feet on a hot summer day!
10 :: Professional Grade Decking :: Stain ResistanceIn everyday use a deck is exposed to several staining agents such as barbeque sauce while grilling, etc.VEKAdeckTM PRO’s superior composition will not stain like most other deck boards.WoodBrand XIn the demonstration several different types of sauces were dropped onto the surfaces of many leading deckboards including VEKAdeckTM PRO.Using household cleaners we then tried to remove the stains. VEKAdeckTM PRO wiped completely clean while the others absorbed oils and the surface appeared discolored.
11 :: It’s Not A Composite :: After 8 Weeks of Outdoor exposureFade ResistanceVEKAdeckTM PRO’s unique cellular PVC formulation assures a long lasting beautiful appearance.Unlike wood and wood composites, VEKAdeckTM PRO will resist fading and retain its color longer.No Noticeable DifferenceNorthernIndustrialSimulated weathering over several seasons.Brand XMiamiPhoenix
12 :: Professional Grade Decking :: Slip ResistanceVEKAdeckTM PRO has a 2-stage embossed attractive wood grain pattern on its’ surface. This allows for exceptional traction even in wet or slippery conditions.Some popular composite deckboards do not use an embossed pattern and thus increases the risk of slipping.Brand X
13 Installs Like Traditional Lumber :: Professional Grade Decking ::Installs Like Traditional LumberVEKAdeckTM PRO installs with traditional hand or power tools and easily accepts nails, screws, or hidden fasteners.It can be sawn at any angle and is self counter-sinking so board will not mushroom.VEKAdeckTM PROBrand XCuts Easily On Any AngleNo Special Screws Needed!No Pre-Drilling NecessaryAccepts Hidden FastenersBrand X
14 Hardness / Surface Durability :: Professional Grade Decking ::Hardness / Surface DurabilityWhen it comes to strength and performance, VEKAdeckTM PRO is at the top of the industry.Due of heavy traffic, most deckboards surface patterns wear out quickly. However, Because of its superior surface strength, VEKAdeckTM PRO’s beautiful wood grain pattern will withstand years of traffic and stay beautiful throughout the life of the product..…………………………….. 75Oak …………………………………….. 70Composites …...……………………….. 65Pine ……………...…………………….. 50
15 :: Professional Grade Decking :: Impact ResistanceVEKAdeckTM PRO is one of the strongest deck materials available on the market today.VEKAdeckTM PRO Challenge:This demonstration is VEKAdeckTM PRO’s unique impact testing method displayed at various trade shows. A 16lb. bowling ball is dropped from above to simulate how well a plank will withstand impact (of say a potted plant being dropped, etc.).A single VEKAdeckTM PRO plank shown above has withstood over 200 consecutive bowling ball drops and still no sign of bending, cracking, or breaking.While testing competitors decks, their product simply snapped right in half upon the first drop.Brand X
