Tuff-Clad – Metal FlashingJeremy
When creating the Tufdek vinyl decking system we wanted to use something beyond the standard and poorly designed plastic edge clip for our edge terminations. Our research showed most failures happened because of water entering the failed clip. These clips were never designed to last the extended 15-year lifespan of our high quality Tufdek waterproof vinyl decking.
We looked at the waterproofing details used in the roofing industry and as a result discovered that laminated PVC metal flashing’s were commonly used for many details including edge terminations. So we created Tuff-Clad to use for our own deck terminations and it immediately became an important part of our Tufdek Waterproofing System. Using our own proprietary 21 mil PVC film and having it custom milled and then factory laminated to a 24 gauge G90 galvanized metal.
When you buy Tufdek vinyl decking for your next deck waterproofing project remember that Tuff-Clad PVC Metal Deck Flashing provides permanent, waterproof deck edge protection that will last as long as your Tufdek vinyl decking. These Tuff-Clad laminated metal deck flashing’s are exclusive to Tufdek and just one of many high performing details in our complete Tufdek system.
Tuff-Clad PVC laminated metal flashing offers the most efficient and permanent solution for terminating your membrane details. You fasten our metal flashing to the deck surface and the membrane gets welded to the PVC metal flashing ensuring a long-lasting and completely waterproof finish. There is now no need to adhere the membrane over the edge, mechanically fastening your terminations and risking separation and water penetration. Tuff-Clad metal flashing is the answer for your waterproofing termination needs. Contact us today for more information about using Tuff-Clad PVC laminated metal flashing on your next project.
