PONTOON/DOCK SYSTEMS & DECKING Easy clip system sets new composite standard Portuguese company Soprefa continues to build the reputation of its Twinwood brand with the launch of a new glass fibre reinforced product, described as a “revolutionary concept” with regard to its clip installation. The ground-breaking clipping and structuring system makes installation quicker and easier for professionals and non-professionals alike, and broadens the scope of the product for DIY installation on terraces, porches, verandas etc. The glass fibre reinforcement also enables installers to lengthen the decking joists by up to 50cm (20in) without the risk of bending or warping, thus saving material and time. Soprefa manufactures all of its moulds for customised deck profiles Marina division opens at Green Bay Wisconsin-based Green Bay Decking has opened a dedicated National Dock and Marina Division to give end-users a direct channel to its US-wide network of dealers and distributors. The division provides product, sales and installation information for the company’s composite decking brands, such as I Dekk, DuxxBak, Optima Deck and Indura Deck. Focus is on the unique composition of products that are low-maintenance and well suited to marine use. Division sales manager, Jeremy Reinke, stresses “our unique product composition, which contains no wood and no PVC, is exclusively ideal for moisture-rich environments.” “The marina industry – both commercial and residential – has long in house and is therefore able to offer customers a competitive and diverse range of solutions and geometries in boards and bumpers. As products are developed specifically for pontoons and marinas, the company can supply cut-to-size quality products that offer exceptional resistance to all threats encountered in the maritime environment. The company can supply pontoon and dock builders all over the world with decking for newbuild and refurbishment projects. been searching for an alternative to woodplastic-composite (WPC) and PVC decking materials, both of which suffer from environmental exposure,” Reinke adds. “Our comprehensive offerings answer the extreme challenges of the marine environment not only with our bulletproof compound but also with a unique product line for each type of marine application.” As an example, he cites DuxxBak, no-drip-through-decking as perfect for covered docks and boat houses as it allows the dock roof to double as a sun deck, protecting the area below from water and debris without the need for a secondary drainage system. The ‘Classic Commercial Board’, meanwhile, is ideal for commercial applications with heavy traffic as, although lightweight, it is able to span joists at up to 24in (61cm) on centre. Newark expansion survived timing challenges L to r: Jon Challis and James Wilkinson at Newark Marina’s new 33-berth extension. In response to an increased demand for berthing, Inland and Coastal Marina Systems (ICMS) designed and manufactured a 33-berth extension to the popular Newark Marina on the River Trent in England. The expansion was not without its challenges. Extensive flooding, buried vehicles and the ongoing pandemic caused disruption to managing director James Wilkinson’s vision of a bright and attractive expansion of the picturesque inland marina. But, ironically, the onset of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown in March 2020, unlocked the availability of important local earth moving plant that enabled the team to catch up on lost time, moving the project forward. Working closely with Wilkinson and his team, ICMS ensured the new standard leisure pontoon system, with terracotta Glass Reinforced Concrete decking, was available for delivery as soon as the ground works were complete. “James had a very clear idea of what he wanted to achieve with the marina expansion, giving his berth holders a very pleasant place to stay,” noted ICMS sales manager Jon Challis. “Disruptions to works due to flooding and the coronavirus meant uncertainty and installation dates moved as the situation unfolded, but we kept in touch throughout and were able to deliver as soon as he was ready,” he added. – January/February 2021 43
