If you own a boat and are looking for a way to enhance its appearance and safety, we invite you to visit Prestige Car Audio and Marine near New Orleans and ask about DEKit non-skid flooring. This attractive foam floor overlay solution dramatically reduces the chances of slipping and falling on casting and swim platforms or when walking around. Keep reading to find out why DEKit is the perfect safety and styling upgrade for your next adventure on Lake Pontchartrain or out into the Gulf of Mexico.
What is DEKit Flooring?
DEKit flooring is a polyethylene and ethylene vinyl acetate (PE/EVA) foam that is custom-cut to fit the contours of the floor of your boat. This waterproof and UV-resistant foam is soft and durable, and it provides excellent friction, even when wet, to prevent slips and falls. The foam does compress slightly, so walking around your boat is more comfortable – perfect for a day of trout fishing on Chandeleur Sound. The closed-cell design stays cool so you can spend the day comfortably in your bare feet.
Colors and Patterns
DEKit non-slip marine flooring is available in 11 solid colors and olive and snow camouflage patterns in 3 mm and 5 mm thicknesses. You can also choose from 16 different two-tone color combinations in 6, 10, 13 and 25 mm thicknesses to suit the style of your boat and your application.
You have your choice of panels with or without a pin line outline. Within the outline, you can pick from faux teak, wood plank, fish scale or diamond patterns or leave the surface solid for a clean look. These patterns look amazing with a teak top layer and black background on a cruiser or Ice Grey and Anchor Grey on a wakeboard boat.
How Is DEKit Installed?
Having DEKit installed on your boat is incredibly easy. First, we use our 3D scanner to create a detailed and accurate model of your boat. We send that file to DEKit, along with your color and pattern choices. They refine the measurements and add your style choices to the file before sending the information to their CNC router to cut the foam. Every installation is 100% custom-tailored to your specific application for a perfect fit.
Once the foam pieces are cut and shipped to us, we schedule an appointment that’s convenient for you. We clean the boat floor thoroughly before application. DEKit non-slip flooring features an acrylic 3M pressure sensitive adhesive that works excellent on gel coat, Awlgrip, painted and metal surfaces.
