Anti-Slip Marine Surfaces

 

 

Evateak is a synthetic teak marine surface 1/4" thick that provides high traction wet or dry. It is a two colour laminate that is precision cut with a computer controlled cutting system (CNC). Typically the top colour is cut through to expose the bottom colour and simulate a teak deck with the caulking lines. The bottom side of Evateak comes with a pressure sensitive adhesive (peel and stick) backing for clean and easy installation. This closed cell UV safe EVA foam product adds comfort, traction, safety and beauty to your vessel.  Evateak is ideal for swim platforms, decks, gunnels or any surface above the water line.

Boaters can benefit from Evateak's pre-made pads for their boats or Evateak can be customized for the surface of your liking. Evateak has excellent acoustic and thermal insulating properties and can help eliminate that annoying buzzing and rattling of aluminum boats. There will be no more hot decks or benches with an application of Evateak.
