What Is the Best Marine Decking Material?

HJDECK offers a wide range of marine decking materials, but the best choice is our foam boat flooring. It has numerous advantages over alternatives like vinyl, aluminum, rubber, and marine carpet.

Our foam boat flooring is UV-stable, oil-resistant, and waterproof. It provides excellent anti-slip properties, making it safe to use even when wet. Cleaning is a breeze, and its antibacterial and antifungal properties ensure a hygienic surface. The closed-cell structure dissipates heat effectively and adds to its durability.

In comparison, vinyl is slippery, aluminum is not suitable for saltwater environments, rubber and marine carpet are not UV-resistant and prone to damage from sunlight, and marine carpet can trap dirt and promote bacterial growth.
