Boat deck flooring is well known for its use in bathrooms. In this article, we will talk about boat deck flooring: origin, products to protect and maintain them... As the wood is located in damp rooms, it is important to maintain a boat deck floor regularly.
Boat deck flooring was originally laid on boats and designed to withstand the most severe weather conditions. Its use has been diverted to interior design. It is often found in damp rooms such as bathrooms and kitchens. It can be manufactured in two ways:
From exotic wood species such as teak, iroko or ipe because of their natural resistance to moisture.
From treated wood species such as ash, beech, acacia and many others. These are more fragile woods that have been chemically treated to resist moisture.
Exotic wood species are the strongest but also the most expensive, which is why many boat deck floors are made from European wood species, which once treated, are very suitable for this type of project.
