Many businesses, hotels, restaurants, etc. are beginning to use their rooftop as extra space for patrons.
Aluminum rooftop decking is the perfect decking surface for these rooftop applications!
You know that AridDek is useful in many different types of applications, such as decking and docks, commercial and residential.
But did you know that AridDek is the perfect aluminum roof decking for rooftop applications?
In a majority of AridDek rooftop installations, a waterproof roof already existed, however, the architect or developer still decided to install AridDek. Not for its waterproof feature, but because AridDek aluminum decking is lightweight and durable as a walking surface.
Other benefits that make AridDek ideal as aluminum rooftop decking:
Powder-coated Finish: The powder-coated finish of AridDek provides a durable, non-slip surface for rooftop decking
Fire-Resistant: AridDek is a safe, fire-resistant walking surface, ideal for both residential and commercial applications
Light Weight: AridDek weighs one pound per linear foot, which makes AridDek easier to handle and much lighter than using concrete pavers
Durability of Aluminum: Rooftop decks face exposure to the elements 24/7; however, aluminum will not warp, rot, or decay over time
Recyclable: AridDek features 50% post-industrial/post-consumer scrap aluminum

From hospital rooftops to baseball stadiums, AridDek was designed and engineered for high traffic use in the most demanding applications.
AridDek’s interlocking aluminum decking boards create a seamless surface with an integrated hidden gutter system that channels water away and provides flexible sizing for any width or length of a rooftop deck. Each decking board is secured with a hidden fastener system, resulting in a gapless, skid-free, single layer watertight rooftop decking surface.
Whether commercial or residential, AridDek is ideal for any deck rooftop application!

Wahoo Decks launches Fortis – an Aluminum Decking Board System – at International Builder Show.
Fortis attaches with a hidden fastener system and creates a low-maintenance decking surface.
Wahoo Decks announced today from the International Builders’ Show at Booth #C6747 the launch of one of its newest products, Fortis, a non-watertight aluminum decking board system.
“We see great potential in rooftop applications,” said Jon Bailey, Vice President of Wahoo Decks. “Fortis gives architects and developers an option of having a durable roof deck product that is a fraction of the weight of concrete pavers or composites.”
Like other decking products from Wahoo Decks, Fortis is manufactured using 50% post industrial, post consumer scrap aluminum. All of the Fortis aluminum decking boards are fireproof, powder coated, marine grade aluminum and are manufactured and assembled in the U.S.
Fortis is available three different decking colors: sandstone, granite, or artisan clay.
The 8” aluminum deck board has a safe, non-skid surface that naturally stays cooler to the touch compared to other traditional decking planks. It is also designed for high traffic use in the most demanding environments, making Fortis is ideal for residential and commercial decking applications.

AridDek aluminum decking selected by Creed Construction for its zero fire rating at Wabash Bar and Grill in Manhattan, Kansas.
Wahoo Decks announced today that Creed Construction has installed the award-winning AridDek aluminum decking board system, at Wabash Bar and Grill in Manhattan, Kansas, for its durability, low-maintenance, and fire safety.
“I ultimately chose AridDek aluminum decking for fire safety reasons,” says Jerald Creed of Creed Construction. “Considering we allow smoking on our rooftop, I wanted to choose a product that was safe. AridDek does not allow water, beer, or cigarette butts to fall through the decking onto the rooftop. We are able to sweep debris to a catch basin and clean nightly, and it prevents fire hazard. Not to mention the great looks and durability of the product!”
With an interlocking design that provides a beautiful, low-maintenance non-combustible deck surface, AridDek also incorporates an integrated gutter system to create a dry area under the deck. The textured powder coating provides a safe non-skid surface that will naturally stay cooler to the touch than traditional decking boards.
AridDek aluminum decking has a zero fire rating, is non-combustible and won’t smolder. AridDek is watertight and has been engineered to be uniquely low-maintenance and more resistant to natural elements than traditional decking products.
“Wahoo Decks has uniquely positioned itself at the forefront of watertight and fireproof rooftop deck drainage systems,” says Wahoo Decks’ sales representative Ben Ivey. “We worked closely with Creed Construction designing a system that met the property owners needs and surpassed the requirements set forth by the local fire marshal’s office and code officials.”
