INSTALLATION GUIDE:


1. The use of the NEW Aqua-Dek™ requires that your support structure (supporting members) is designed to be structurally independent before the application of the NEW Aqua-Dek™ panels. Ensure your support structure and the use of the NEW Aqua-Dek™ panels conforms to all applicable codes and authorities with jurisdiction in your area.

2. Protective safety equipment (e.g. eye protection, safety boots) is always recommended before working with the NEW Aqua-Dek™.

3. SCREWS: A #10 or #12 diameter fastener that is of the following type and at an appropriate thread length for your support members. Pan Head, Button Head, Dome Head, Round Head or Truss Head fasteners are acceptable. Stainless Steel or Coated Fasteners will look better over time in a marine environment as surface rust can be aesthetically detracting from your maintenance free dock surface. IMPORTANT: Fasteners are to only be hand snugged to trap the NEW Aqua-Dek™ down but to allow for expansion and contraction of the panel with temperature change.

4. Lay down your NEW Aqua-Dek panels ensuring that each panel overlaps the previous panel at the integrated support tab.

5. Fasten down with an allowance of 1/8” between long panel edges. Repeat until your structure surface is decked.

6.Butt joints require at ¼” gap to allow for expansion and contraction.
