Sustainable decking for Royal Opera House

Kebony Grad decking is a sustainable choice

Kebony has been honoured for this prestigious decking project for One of London’s most historic and cultural buildings. The Royal Opera House in Covent Gardens now has the fourth flooring re-laid with Kebony Clear Grad® System decking. This is all about designing and installing sustainable decking for the Royal Opera House.

Stanton Williams Architects choose Grad System decking for Royal Opera House

Sustainability, durability, stability and longevity are all reasons why Stanton Williams Architects specified Kebony. Kebony is a softwood that has been modified in such a way that the natural wood becomes harder and more durable than most other timbers used for decking. The Architects also wanted a seamless installation, a system of clean lines and no fixings visible. The only answer to solve this problem was presented by Alfresco Flooring with the Grad System® which works seamlessly with Kebony.

Kebony and Grad System is the perfect combination for decking

When searching for a decking system that is designed for ease of installation, is long lasting and durable, Grad wins.

Grad System decking is a series of aluminium joists with special clips that fix underneath the boards. This means there are no fixings on show, and you can produce a real luxury floor as your decking. The system has been available across Europe for many years and has been championed by the flooring specialists at Alfresco Flooring. Alfresco Flooring were responsible for showcasing sustainable decking for the Royal Opera House.
