Fire-Proof Decking To Be Laid At Latham

EnviroBuild has signed a contract with Taylor Wimpey for its 150 Aqua Channel aluminium decking in the refurbishment of the balconies at Latham’s Yard in London.

The aim of the refurbishment project is to adhere to the updated legislation following the Grenfell Tower fire. With a cass-A fire resistance rating, EnviroBuild’s latest aluminium decking material passes all of the stringent safety tests with no issue.

The decking uses a simple clipless system for ease of installation, as well as featuring a passive water drainage system. It is also low-slip according to EnviroBuild.


The project

The multi-phase project will see ten high-rise apartment buildings being fitted with EnviroBuild’s deck boards, a total of around 4,000sq.m of material. Anthracite 7016 was chosen as the colour by PRP Architects, with KDD Construction hired as subcontractors.



150 Aqua Channel decking is fully recyclable and there is an option to purchase aluminium manufactured using entirely renewable energy, lowering the carbon intensity of the product by 70%.
