About Our Products
ShipsDek offers high quality closed-cell, cross-linked polyethylene (PE) and ethylene-vinyl-acetate (EVA) foam marine decking. Closed-cell foam deck treads offer a hard wearing, easy to maintain alternative to moulded in anti-slip or paint-on textures for traction in wet areas, improving your comfort and safety. Vepo foams are UV protected and non-absorbent. Easy to clean and stain resistant to provide protection for boat surfaces, especially in high traffic areas. We offer a variety of different color options to match your vessel.
ShipsDek is a superior alternative to marine carpet and is designed to withstand harsh marine conditions. It is made from UV-resistant closed-cell PE/EVA foam that will not absorb water, and provides exceptional traction when wet or dry. It also provides excellent shock and sound absorbing qualities, providing comfort to both the recreational boater and fishermen alike.
Can I apply ShipsDek over existing non-skid?
Yes, it adheres very well to most non-skid surfaces as long as the surface is cleaned properly prior to installation.
Does ShipsDek get hot?
Darker colors will naturally become warmer in the sun, however ShipsDek dispels heat very quickly because of its closed-cell structure.
How long will ShipsDek last?
ShipsDek can be expected to last 5-7 years with routine care and cleaning.
