TDCA DECKMARK +
DeckMark Plus is a complementary part of the product manufacturing schemes. They apply to product or material that conforms or exceeds the requirements of a recognised national or international standard. They identify an individual manufactured component or an assembly made from such components that has undergone additional specific technical or safety evaluations by a recognised quantitative procedure. These tests and evaluations are over and above the requirements of the scheme and are provided by the manufacturer to support professional specification of the product with clear evidence that the component assembly will perform its design function.
GripDeck® Non Slip Decking, Retrogrip and Stadia Strips have all been awarded the DeckMark+
