Think decking, and you probably think timber. 

But timber, as classically attractive and readily available as it is, has problems, as everyone in our sector is well aware.  

It will rot, it can twist and warp, and can require a great deal of maintenance to keep looking and performing its best.  

Which, in recent years, has led to the development of a wide range of alternatives – and one of the most popular is aluminium. 

Why aluminium? Because it’s strong, it’s lightweight, easy to handle, it’s watertight and weather resistant.  

In fact, at F.H. Brundle, we think it’s a great alternative decking material – which is why we’ve recently unveiled our new Synergised aluminium decking range. 

Synergised is a robust, fully fire-rated aluminium decking system designed to meet the rigorous demands of twenty-first century usage, and help tradespeople throughout the sector win lucrative new business. 

Synergised decking is made from structural-grade 6063 T6 aluminium, and finished with a 100 micron Qualicoat™ premium powder coating, giving it exceptional colour retention, even after years of exposure to the sun. 

What’s more, it’s highly slip-resistant surface is comfortable underfoot, and stays cool in hot weather, making it perfect for garden applications – while the fact it’s A1 & A2fl-s1 fire-rated at heights of 18m for commercial buildings and 11m for residential make it ideal for high-rise settings. 

Tested to EN13501, EN 12823 and EN ISO 1716, the system achieves A1 and A2fl-s1 ratings. 

The Synergised system is also extremely quick and easy to install and offers a 50% cost saving when compared to other similar systems.  

Its mill finish non-combustible subframe is available in 3 heights with the 20mm option ideal for ultra-low profile applications. Lightweight and easy to cut, it’s extremely quick to assemble and fit. 

The system’s mill finish non-combustible fully adjustable cradles make for a very simple install, too – with height adjustment ranging from 45mm to 180mm, which, combined with our joist profiles, will deliver decking at the exact angle required. 

Both the subframe and cables can also be used with other decking materials. 

Altogether, Synergised can be fitted with up to a 50% cost saving compared to other aluminium decking systems, and comes with a life expectancy of over 25 years. 

Synergised is available in three contemporary colours – Anthracite, Black and Serengeti Sand.
