Tuff-Clad PVC Metal Flashing
Tufdek vinyl deck membranes are designed to waterproof your deck but what about the other components used in the waterproofing system?
When you purchase Tufdek vinyl decking for your next deck waterproofing project, remember that Tuff-Clad PVC Metal Deck Flashings provide permanent, waterproof deck edge protection that will last as long as your Tufdek vinyl decking. These Tuff-Clad laminated metal deck flashings are exclusive to Tufdek and just one of many high performing components in our Tufdek waterproof vinyl decking system.
When developing the Tufdek waterproofing system, we wanted something beyond the standard plastic edge clip, which has been a prolific failed detail throughout the history of our industry. The majority of call-backs and water ingress occurs when the plastic edge clip falls off, and the vinyl deck membrane is released from the edge. These plastic clips were never designed to last the extended 15-year lifespan of our high quality Tufdek vinyl decking.
At Tufdek, we researched the waterproofing details used in PVC roofing and discovered that laminated PVC metal flashings were commonly used for edge terminations and other detail work. To complete our Tufdek waterproofing system, we then created Tuff-Clad PVC Coated Metal Deck Flashings. Using our own proprietary 21 mil PVC film, having it custom milled and then factory laminated to a 24 gauge, G90 galvanized metal.
