Having Prestige Car Audio and Marine in Metairie install DEKit flooring in your powerboat, fishing boat, sailboat or personal watercraft is a great way to make it safer and more comfortable. This non-skid, closed-cell foam helps keep you from slipping when things get wet. Read on to find out why DEKit flooring surfaces are a necessity rather than an accessory.
What Is DEKit Flooring?
DEKit flooring is made of polyethylene ethylene vinyl acetate (PE EVA) foam that is impressively durable while offering chemical and UV resistance to ensure longevity. After the interior of your boat is scanned, each piece of flooring is custom cut to perfectly fit the contours of your watercraft. DEKit can be applied to almost any horizontal surface and is held in place with a strong 3M adhesive.
Why Do You Need DEKit Flooring?
DEKit flooring offers four significant benefits. Its textured surface helps prevent slips and falls when the interior of your boat is wet or the vessel is rocking in high waves. The flooring protects the fragile fiberglass surface to prevent scratches and scuffs in high-wear areas. DEKit flooring makes your boat more comfortable by adding a soft surface to walk or stand on. Finally, the dense synthetic rubber panels reduce noise transfer from the engine or water hitting the hull to make your trip quieter.
Purchasing DEKit Flooring is Easy
We will scan the interior of your boat and help you choose from 11 solid colors and two camouflage designs. You have the option of faux teak, wood plant, fish scale or diamond patterns on the panels. Finally, you can combine colors to create a two-tone design. Once we’ve scanned your boat and you’ve chosen the design, we send the information to DEKit and they cut the panels for your application.
Our installation team will prepare your boat to ensure the flooring stays adhered, and we work carefully to perfectly align all the seams and gaps for a neat and tidy installation that will last for years and years.
Other Uses for DEKit Flooring
We can add DEKit flooring to the bottom of an aluminum canoe or Jon boat to provide a cool and comfortable surface to sit or kneel on. Airboats are another watercraft that can benefit from the addition of DEKit flooring. We can create custom anti-fatigue standing pads to make it easier and more comfortable to spend a day on your feet.
