Cool Step™ Floor Protection for Waterproof Decking
Enjoying your waterproof sundeck on a sunny day can be so relaxing, but sometimes that outdoor surface can get hot. For those of you who like to sit on your sun-exposed deck on those 100-degree days, you will find the deck can be a bit toasty on the toes. This is common with many surfaces exposed to direct sunlight; think about running across a sandy beach or sitting on the seats in your car on a hot day. Some products just hold heat more than others. Everyone knows that dark colours will retain heat, and light colours do a better job of reflecting the harmful UV rays. For those of you concerned about excessive heat build-up beneath your waterproof deck or structure we recommend Tufdek® Cool Step™ designs. These cool products provide unique solar reflective characteristics which help make your outdoor experience on the hottest days even more enjoyable. Look for the Cool Step™ logo on select Tufdek® waterproof vinyl deck colours and choose a product that stays cooler in the sun.
A Cool Step™ vinyl decking colour is designed to be both highly reflective and highly emissive, transferring less heat into the building and helping keep your deck cooler.
Cool Step™ products provide benefits in all climates:
