East Sussex, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/03/2014 -- London Developer, Henley Homes, has recently installed Raaft Terrafina non-slip composite decking in two of its London developments. The safer, harder-wearing alternative to timber decking spells fewer injuries and virtually no maintenance for generations of residents.

Boasting cost savings on overall lifetime of the installation, non-slip composite decking is an increasingly popular choice of external flooring surface for developers and those designing and managing public spaces. Following reports of accidents relating to timber decking and the known maintenance costs which include; cleaning, staining, sealing and replacement sometimes as often as every 8–10 years, it is no wonder that responsible companies such as Henley Homes are turning to this superior alternative.

Henley Homes develops executive residences mainly across London and is currently completing Stewarts Lodge, sited in the Nine Elms Regeneration area of South West London. Named after the Victorian land-owner who first built in the area in the 19th century, the apartments offer thoughtful space planning and high quality fixtures and fittings. The Raaft Terrafina non-slip composite decking system adorns a large rooftop terrace area where it has been used to clad planters and create simple bench seating in addition to the main decking surface.

The development company also selected Raaft Terrafina non-slip composite decking as part of the redevelopment of an old school close to Lambeth Walk. Lilian Baylis School will become a new community of 149 homes, ranging from one-bedroom flats to four-bedroom town houses. Terrafina non-slip composite decking has again been selected for its superior aesthetic finish, product quality and speed of installation.
