Your boat deserves beautiful and functional non-skid U-Dek, expertly designed and installed!
We pride ourselves on our U-Dek HD PE / eva deck Product base from New Zealand. It has the best wearability in its class. We only use 3m 9775 Adhesive for a strong, yet removeable, if needed, bond.
We template your craft for our PE/EVA deck using a system of our own creation to ensure a proper fit. We dont just grab things off a schematic.
Every curve, deck fitting, cup holder, added tie hooks, and cleats.. or anything else you may have permanantly attached to the boat are incorporated in the design so your boat decking is a perfect fit!
If you want it cut in the foam deck, we will do it. We dont add charges for a little extra design or cutting time in our boat decking. We want you to be happy and tell your friends about our PE/EVA Decking. You will see a color proof before the floor is cut so you can see exactly what you are receiving... No Guess work! Every boat is a custom work of art when we are done!!!
Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
U-Dek HD is a blend of PE and EVA polymers. It is Manufactured by Ultralon Foam Group located in Christ Church, New Zealand. It has the highest density and best durability of all the foam flooring on the market.
U-Dek HD is a blend of polymers. Most of our competitors are PE or polyethelyne only. PE only flooring is more likely to become damaged from hard footwear, self standing tables and or chairs. It is also more likely to be damaged by light amplification. Keep in mind.... these types of damage are not covered by any of their warranties. Our product is also denser than our competitors. It will hold in many situation where our competitors product fails.
We cant stress this enough!!!! No two boats are the same!! Even the same model in the same year will have differences boat to boat. Slight changes are sometimes made in the mold from casting to casting. Deck hardware such as chair mounts and cleats are never place exactly in the same spots. Different boat packages have different items added.... the list goes on and on. We made the mistake once on re-using a template... we will never do that again. it looked horrible and had to be redone.
Don't ask if we have your boat on file... We may have made flooring for the identicle boat in the past and we can use it for estimating prices... but thats it. We like our product to fit like a tailored glove on a hand!!!!
We realize this takes time... but its worth it.
On occasion, things do get damaged and need to be replaced. A cigar is dropped and burns into the surface or a child decides to do artwork with permanant markers on the floor.... things can and do happen. This allows the section to be removed (with some effort) and replaced without damaging the boat itself.
One answer... YES. We have 3 flatbed machines in our shop. This gives us complete manufacturing freedom for custom work. If you scan through the gallery, there are several pics of the shop. Our cut process is different than our competitors. They use a single shaped bit to cut the decking details and stop. We use a 3 bit process that takes more time and gives a more finished look. We start with a rounded bit to cut the edge detail and move on to Two Straight bits. The first straight bit removes the unwanted material, the second bit gives a smooth inner edge.
Our product is priced by the square foot. You purchase only what is used. Our competitors alway charge by the sheet.... so if your boat layout causes you to use 2 full sheets of material and one partial tiny section of another.... they will charge you for all 3 sheets. We dont. We are small enough that we keep track of our partial sheets and use them accordingly on the next project.
Our product has been installed on many charter boats. It hold up to blood, fish guts, grime, vomit and wear! Let our U-Dek PE/EVA Decking take the beating so your base floor is protected. It is VERY resilliant. It will also transform a worn beaten scratched up deck into a new beautiful nonslip floor. In some cases, it may cause the slip and fall insurance to go down!!! Ask your insurance company about PE/EVA non-skid overlays.
No! Completely different engineering , cut process, design process and wearability. It just looks kinda similar. We tested many products before we choose U-Dek including the "Big Three".
