Product

Seacork® is a superior, eco-friendly, slip-resistant and lightweight deck covering material, with excellent inherent strength, acoustic and thermal insulation properties. Its natural look and versatility make Seacork® the perfect choice for your marine application. Seacork® can be installed on any vessel, GRP, Composite, Steel, Aluminium, Ferro-cement or Wood. The ease of installation, utilising weatherproof polyurethane adhesive ensures that the long lasting benefits of your SEACORK deck will be retained year upon year.

Cork, the principal component of Seacork® is a prime-subset of generic cork tissue, harvested for commercial use primarily from the Cork Oak tree, Quercus suber.

 

Eco Friendly

Cork in itself is recyclable, biodegradable and renewable. In addition, the cork forests provide a valuable habitat for birds and other animals being home to many species, including the wild boar and rare birds such as the Black Stork and the Imperial Eagle. The cork oak also helps protect the soil from erosion, and with almost nothing wasted, each part of the cork tree serves an ecological or economic purpose.

  • Safety is of prime importance when aboard any vessel. Non-abrasive Seacork®, combining its natural cushioning properties with its non-slip attributes, provides a firm footing and a soft impact whatever the conditions.
  • Naturally non slip, with a traction rating of 15 dN/cm2, stops you from sliding around your boat, and significantly improves safety on board. Even with its slip-resistant properties, Seacork® is non-abrasive - easy on your sailing gear as well as your skin.
  • Relieving the impact on your joints and knees when moving around on deck, cork is a natural shock absorber with a compressibility of 15-20%. When the cork is subjected to pressure, the gas in the cells is compressed and volume reduces considerably. When released from pressure, Seacork® recovers very rapidly to its original shape. These unique shock-absorbing properties ensure that your decking is more comfortable to walk and stand on.

Material Performance

  • This lightweight material, both durable and weather resistant, makes Seacork® the perfect choice for your marine application. From the competitive, extreme sports enthusiast to the amateur boat devotee, we have a product that will suit your requirements
  • Perfect for saving weight, without compromising on safety, Seacork® has a density of just 400Kg/m3 which means that a plate measuring 1 meter square (in 8mm thick material) weighs just 3.2kg - Less than 2/3rd of a similar sized piece of teak!
  • Virtually impervious to all chemicals normaly associated with marine use, as well as nail polish and high heels! Durable Seacork® is impact resistant with amazing recovery properties. You are a product lifelong dent-free, stain-free surface, unmatched by any traditional or non traditional decking material.
  • Cork contains a natural substance called suberin. Suberin is a waxy type of substance that makes the cork impervious to liquids and the cork will not rot, wether exposed to water or not. It is fully weather resistant even in the most severe coastal regions.
  • Seacork remains stable at temperature extremes, and with a specific heat measured at> 1500 J/(Kg K), provides a comfortable and safe footing in all weathers, cool when it is hot, warm when it is cold.

 

Versatility of Use

  • Available in plates or strips, with or without grooves. See our price list for the full range of product, or contact us if you have a special requirement in mind.
  • Easy to install for the DIY enthusiast (full instructions for installation of Seacork® can be provided), or why not ask one of our professional fitters to carry out the work for you?
  • Day to day maintenance is simple! A light wash with your usual non-abrasive detergent should keep your deck looking great for a very long time (We have found All purpose Yacht Ultraclean one of the best for your cork deck)
  • Occasionally, when the surface loses its shine and becomes smooth from wear and tear, a light sanding with fine sandpaper, followed by a single coat of surface protector will bring your decks back to their original beauty.
  • Should your Seacork® ever need repair, a near-invisible restoration can be made, using a simple patch, cut to shape, and glued in place using our recommended adhesive. Contact us if you require any further advice or help for any specific repairs that you may need.
  • Weight, lightness, durability, suppleness, and strength, makes Seacork® ideal for decking. Moreover, being able to fit it around the most complex of shapes means that this highly flexible decking material is the perfect choice for installation on your boat.
  • If you would like to commission a completely original and personalised design or artwork for any application of Seacork®, then we can help. Whether it’s creating a unique panel engraved with your boat name, or a simple geometric design such as a Compass Rose, our bespoke service will be able to fulfil your brief to a highly professional and creative standard
  • It isn’t just the ideal material for your decks… there are many other applications for Seacork®, including non-slip table tops or insulation for your refrigerator, to name but a few! Just let your imagination go!
