Cricket Club Bowled Over By Twinson Decking From Deeplas

Deeplas Twinson® Terrace+ commercial decking has been specified for the new Boundary Rooms Suite at The PROBIZ County Ground, Hove, home of Sussex County Cricket Club.

Twinson® Terrace+ premium outdoor decking is suitable for all kinds of commercial applications including pubs, restaurants, hotels and sports arenas.

Cricket ground picIt combines all the benefits of timber and PVC in a single, durable and aesthetically appealing decking material – it offers the natural appearance and warmth of timber with the low maintenance and durability of PVC. This clever combination of materials also makes it water resistant, robust, splinter and split-free.

Wiltshire-based Specialist Structures chose Twinson® Terrace decking for the new hospitality suite at Sussex County Cricket Club principally because its natural timber appearance contrasted well with the anodised aluminium frames used on the doors and white architectural tensioned fabric roof.

The new hospitality suite is a single-storey, modular design and build solution from Specialist Structures that makes extensive use of the Twinson® Terrace on an integral exterior platform. The decking is accessible via the double bi-parting commercial glazed doors and features a number of ramps and handrails that ensure it meets latest mobility requirements.

A concealed assembly system available with Twinson® Terrace decking was used as part of the installation. The assembly system allows planks to be individually dismantled and replaced.

Building the hospitality suite was part of an £8m development project to improve the club's facilities, floodlighting and increase the ground's capacity to 7,000, whilst also refurbishing the Spen Cama Pavilion.

“We selected Twinson decking because its superior aesthetics complemented our design-lead SPACE® building system,” said Keith Lewcock, Managing Director at Specialist Structures Ltd. “The decking creates a safe, low maintenance solution for the new hospitality suite, which has already received several positive comments from visitors.”

All Twinson® decking is 100% recyclable and is made using PEFC pine, an environmentally friendly alternative to tropical hardwood.

Twinson® Terrace has a slip resistant, semi-flush surface with a shallow accent line between the boards to prevent small objects and food becoming lodged. Having the boards butted together also makes cleaning easier as well as safer and more comfortable for wearers of heeled shoes walking across the surface.

“We are delighted that Twinson® Terrace has been used on this project,” said Hazel Verschuere, Deeplas Building Products Director. “It will provide a long term low maintenance solution, which was an important consideration due to the high number of visitors that will use the suite.”

Along with the Twinson decking range, Deeplas supplies a wide range of foam products that have a long established reputation for quality. The range is BBA (British Board of Agrement) and CSTB certified, and carries the BSI Kitemark. White PVC-U products are guaranteed for up to 20 years against discolouration, warping and cracking.
