Did you know Wahoo Decks’ beginning happened when Wahoo Docks developed AridDek, an aluminum deck product? AridDek is now one of the most popular aluminum decking board options on the market. AridDek’s debut all started over a decade ago when Wahoo Docks engineered AridDek as the perfect complement to its low-maintenance boat docks. Now Wahoo Decks’ AridDek is used on docks and gangways, and if that wasn’t enough, you can also purchase dock accessories from Wahoo Decks!
AridDek has numerous benefits when used on docks and gangways:
1. Easy to clean
- Simply clean your AridDek dock decking board periodically with soap and warm water and your dock decking looks as good as new.
- Over time wood docks can rot. But not AridDek! Not only is it very stable but it also does not materially degrade; even with intense exposure to sunlight and water. This makes your dock or gangway long lasting and impervious to insect damage, rot, and other types of decay.
- Because AridDek is lightweight and watertight it makes AridDek ideal for upper deck applications.
4. Slip Resistant
- Your dock or gangway may need to be near the water but that doesn’t mean you need to risk slipping! AridDek is slip resistant because of its ribbed texture and slip-resistant powder coating.
5. Cooler to the Touch
- Because of aluminum’s high thermal conductivity and its light color options, AridDek provides a surface that naturally stays cooler to the touch than composite, concrete, or wood decking materials
In addition to the fact that AridDek is perfect for your dock, or gangway, remember that you also have abundant options for selecting dock accessories!
Here are just some of the dock accessories options you have when creating your ideal dock or gangway:
