New boardwalk for Hornsea Promenade, Marine Drive

East Riding Of Yorkshire Council contacted Ecodek when they needed to replace existing decking along the seafront at Hornsea. Having previously used timber, which had significantly worn, they decided to specify composite boards in order to extend the life of the installation.

Being on the seafront, the decking needed to withstand tough conditions including moist sea air, salt and sand – all of which can cause increased risk of material degradation. At the same time, the deck boards needed to be durable and hard wearing to cope with the demands of a busy public walkway.

After technical guidance and advice from the Ecodek team, the Council specified Ecodek Signature HD boards in Pebble Grey with anti-slip inserts. These were installed on an Ecodek Supastiff composite subframe for optimum durability.

Because we manufacture in the UK, we were also able to supply made-to-order board lengths which reduced waste and speeded-up installation time of the boardwalks.

What the team says:

“We worked closely with East Riding Of Yorkshire Council and CR Reynolds, the appointed contractor, to deliver this stunning project.

Using anti-slip boards offers an additional level of grip to standard boards, ideal for damp conditions along a seafront.

In addition, supplying custom length boards really helps speed-up an installation and save on off-cuts.”
