Consultation and Planning

Start with a consultation where our experts will assess your space, taking note of all the specific needs and requirements. This phase encompasses strategic planning where the architectural vision comes to life, taking into consideration all necessary regulatory forms including EWS1 forms.

Site Preparation

This step involves readying your site for the new deck. It includes removing the existing decking or clearing the space, ensuring a stable foundation for the aluminium decking.

Foundation and Framing

Aluminium decking requires a robust and sturdy frame. We employ high-quality materials to create a frame that guarantees stability and longevity.

Decking Installation

With a sound foundation in place, the decking installers move towards laying the aluminium deck boards meticulously, ensuring precision and adherence to the design blueprint.

Understanding EWS1 Forms

A substantial part of the pre-installation process is understanding and navigating the landscape of EWS1 forms, a legal requirement for buildings above 18 meters. Let us delve into this requisite to provide clarity:

  1. EWS1 Form Legal RequirementIf your building is above 18 meters, it is a legal requirement to obtain EWS1 forms, certifying the materials used are safe and compliant with fire safety regulations.
  2. EWS1 Form under 18mThough not a legal requirement, it is strongly recommended for buildings under 18 meters to also secure EWS1 certificates, promising a secure and safe decking solution.
  3. EWS1 CertificatesThese are documents that certify your decking materials as safe. It bears testament to the superior quality of materials employed in Unique Outdoor Living Group’s aluminium decking solutions.
