F.H. Brundle’s first-rate fire-rated decking

With more focus on the importance of fire-rating than ever, long-standing F.H. Brundle have responded with a stylish, versatile and easy-fit fire-rated decking product that’s excelled in fire testing. Head of Marketing Paul Smith explains more.

Today, the word on the lips of every architect working on high-rise buildings is fire safety.

But it’s not just architects – it’s the government, local authorities, construction companies, clients and the public as a whole, too.

The events of the last five years have thrust fire safety into the spotlight like never before – and those responsible for designing and constructing the tower blocks of tomorrow are understandably demanding products with outstanding fire credentials.

It was in response to rising demand for fire-rated decking applicable to high-rise settings that we developed Synergised.

Excelling on all fronts

Synergised-Decking high rise.The idea was simple – we wanted to create a tough, long-lasting decking that excelled on all fronts, but offered reliable high performance in particular. That’s exactly what Synergised delivers.

Synergised is A1 & A2fl-s1 fire-rated for commercial and residential buildings, making it ideal for high-rise applications.

What’s more, it’s made from structural-grade 6063 T6 aluminium, and finished with a 100-micron Qualicoat™ premium powder coating, giving it exceptional colour retention, even after years of exposure to the sun.

Its highly slip-resistant surface is comfortable underfoot, and stays cool in hot weather, while the system itself is extremely quick and easy to install and can offer up to a 50% cost saving when compared to similar systems.

It’s also tested to EN 13501, EN 13823 and EN ISO 1716, and comes in three colours – anthracite, black and Serengeti sand.

Speedy installations

On top of all that, Synergised is extremely quick and easy to install, offers a 50% cost saving when compared to similar systems, and comes with a life expectancy of over 25 years.

Its mill finish subframe is available in 3 heights with the 20mm option ideal for ultra-low profile applications. Lightweight and easy to cut, it’s extremely quick to assemble and fit.

The system’s adjustable cradles make for a very simple install, too – with height adjustment ranging from 45mm to 180mm, which, combined with our joist profiles, will deliver decking at the exact angle required.

The perfect product for high-rise

In other words, you’ll struggle to find a decking product that’s as stylish, versatile, easily installed and suited for balconies and other high-rise applications than Synergised aluminium deck boards.

An outstanding timber alternative

However, aluminium isn’t all that Synergised has to offer. The range also includes a selection of Italian-made porcelain tiles, that are a perfect fit for an array of patio installations.

The La Fabbrica collection is available in two options – Ca’Foscari, which recreates the warmth and natural appearance of textured wood, and Yosemite, which boasts wood-like knots and veining.

Again, installation could not be easier, with tiles installed directly onto a flat concrete surface. Once installed, the system is long-lasting and low maintenance with a manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty on the tiles and a product life expectancy of 25 years plus.

It’s a fantastic addition that makes one of the leading timber-alternative decking systems even better.
