Latitudes® Launches Composite Marine Decking for Docks, Marinas, Boardwalk
05.12.2009 – Grand Rapids, MI – (Universal Forest Products) Latitudes, a leading
brand of composite decking and railing, announces the addition of Latitudes Marine
composite decking. Latitudes Marine decking navigates innovation with composite
dock boards specifically designed for use at marinas, on boardwalks, on floating
docks or for applications where thicker, more robust boards are desired.
Latitudes Marine decking is fortified with the same proven Strandex® technology
used in all Latitudes composite products. Strandex has a long and proven track
record of durability and strength, including years of technical development of
products for U.S. naval waterfront facilities.
Available in gray, cedar, redwood and walnut, Latitudes Marine dock boards are
barefoot-friendly, slip-resistant and have a reversible brushed/woodgrain surface.
What’s more, Latitudes Marine boards are moisture resistant and will not splinter,
split, cup or rot, providing long-lasting beauty and comfort with no sealing, painting
or staining required. Latitudes Marine decking comes with a 10-year limited
commercial warranty and a 15-year limited residential warranty.
“Our new marine board is strong and durable, and gives marine and dock builders a
great alternative that looks better and lasts longer than traditional deck and marine
dock boards,” says Dick Gauthier, VP of marketing for Universal Forest Products.
Latitudes Marine is thicker and more robust than typical composite deck boards and
is engineered for use on wide joist spacing. Latitudes Marine decking dimensions
are 1.25" x 5.4375" x 16', with a profiled appearance designed for marina decking
where a maximum of 24” on-center joist spacing is needed.
