The INEX>MAXIDECK from UBIQ was installed on the external verandah of a tourist accommodation located in Airlie Beach, Queensland.

The owner of Whitsunday Moorings Bed & Breakfast sought a timber deck appearance for the verandah but without the cost or ongoing maintenance of timber.

UBIQ’s INEX>MAXIDECK composite decking was found to be the perfect solution for the application. Grooves 3mm deep were first routed into the rough side of INEX>MAXIDECK, with the decking then finished with three coats of water based wood stain and sealed with a proprietary sealer (Glaze by Shalex). The result was a stunning timber like deck appearance as desired by the owner.

Owner Peter Brooks said the installation was completed in a fraction of the time required for timber decking, even though the INEX>MAXIDECK sheets measured 2700x600mm. He is happy to have received an affordable long-term durable solution without the ongoing issues of timber in a tropical environment.

INEX>MAXIDECK is manufactured from UBIQ’s revolutionary low carbon Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC) technology, providing the assurance of long term durability. Being non-combustible, the composite decking is suitable for use in all bushfire prone zones including BAL-FZ when fixed to a complying floor structure.
