A FIT Show first?

Milwood Group has promised a world first at The FIT Show when it launches Ali-deck, its new aluminium decking system.

Ali-deck is a quick fit, slip-resistant decking system designed for both domestic and commercial settings. Milwood Group claims Ali-deck is faster to install than both timber and composite decking, it’s safer and stronger, and can span 300% further than traditional decking.

This is thanks to the inherent strength of aluminium, along with Ali-deck’s Supa Joist, which has been designed with large spans and ease of installation in mind. Ali-deck will not crack or warp, can be recycled, and is coloured to complement its surroundings, or one of Milwood’s aluminium verandas.

“We are absolutely thrilled to finally reveal Ali-deck, and look forward to the official launch at the upcoming FIT Show,” Mark Wood, managing director of Milwood Group, said. “Ali-deck takes us in a bold, new direction and gives tradespeople something that is completely unique, highly-desirable and designed to help them achieve greater margins on their projects.

“The timing couldn’t be better too, with the consumer-driven demand for outdoor living. Savvy installers now have the opportunity to pair Ali-deck with one of our in-demand aluminium shelters. This combination can then complement a new aluminium bifold or patio door to create a premium outdoor living space. It’s also great timing for commercial fitters with Ali-deck providing a great alternative to the now outlawed composite decking in high-rise balconies and other commercial settings.

“The opportunities are truly endless, and we look forward to demonstrating what can be achieved with Ali-deck at the FIT Show. Our team will be on-hand to answer any questions and we will even have examples for visitors to come and explore. We are anticipating a busy couple of days when doors open in May.”

Ali-deck will be just one of many products on display at the Milwood stand, with the Kent firm showcasing its full range of aluminium verandas, canopies, carports and pergolas. The team will also be using the show to launch Simplicity Xtra, a new roof system.
