Thru Flow Decking is the best and safest way to deck your dock in areas with large waves or high winds...even hurricane winds. ThruFlow™ is designed to be the decking surface for a dock, pier, deck, patio, or any outside or inside flooring structure. It's durable, safe, maintenance-free, storm resistant, environmentally friendly, comfortable to walk on and easy to install, what more could you want out of a walking surface?
Made from Virgin Plastic
Reinforced with Fibreglass
Contains No Recycled Material
Increased Load Bearing and Flexural Stiffness Properties (Very Strong)
SAFE & ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY
The interlocking panels are ideal for docks due to their water resistance and 360° anti-slip surface. You will never have water gathering on the dock or pier that can cause the walking surface to become slippery. No algae or mold that can also lead to a slick surface.
The design of this decking allows light to penetrate below the walking surface, minimizing the effect of the walking surface on the plants and animals below. The Army Corps of Engineers has approved this product in Florida over submerged aquatic vegetation (sea-grass, mangrove habitat, etc.). You will also never have to worry about leaching chemicals and it is also recyclable.

ThruFlow panels use an interlocking design that allows each panel to blend into the next creating a completed and attractive pattern. Each panel allows for 43% of sunlight to pass through onto the native flora and fauna below the dock and keeping nature happy.
The panels come in three colors: Light Gray, Maple, which is a medium tan and SeaFoam which is very close to pure white. The surface of all Series panels is UV-resistant which means it will never get hot under direct sunlight, and the non-slip surface holds true wet or dry.
The panel not only allows light to penetrate to decking, but the grate style surface also allows water and wind from below to pass through which helps protect your dock from the effects of wave, wind and storm surge damage by minimizing the effect of uplift on the decking surface. Docks with this decking have survived hurricanes in Florida where ALL other docks have been destroyed. The damage these forces can cause is less when the water or wind can pass through with less resistance.
Thru Flow recommends a high-quality #10 or #12 panhead stainless steel screw with a 2.5" length. Screws should be clear through the panel and fastened into the material of your structural frame. It is important to also remember not to tighten the screw down entirely and to allow for expansion and contraction. Hole alignment is also important and the 3' panel has 18" centers and requires 6 fasteners.
We offer a #10 x 2.5" Panhead Philips Stainless Steel Tek Screw (seen in the picture to left). These are a self-tapping screw. Click here to visit this product.
