Made from soft yet durable, closed-cell, EVA material faux teak pads consist of two different colored sheets of non absorbent material, laminated together, 3mm on top and 3mm on the bottom. The surface is brushed for texture and then the pads are cut and beveled on CNC machines exposing the color beneath and creating a very realistic teak effect. The beveled edges provide a finished look and feel while helping to prevent peeling up of the pads. SeaDek’s faux teak material provides the classic look of a teak deck or swim platform without the costly maintenance of real teak. Easy installation, traditional and modern color selection and the option of custom logos and graphics are possible.
The finished pads are easily installed using robust pressure sensitive adhesive backing specifically tested and designed for the demanding marine environment. Just peel, stick and press the pads in place.
Manufacturer’s logos or custom text can be integrated into the pad design for an additional fee. Currently faux teak is available in 4 color combinations: Titanium grey over black, teak over black, teak over holly and holly over teak. Because of the extra machine time required to create these pads faux teak material it’s about a 25% upgrade compared to standard non-teak material.
