A complete solution for decking over solid surfaces

StructurAL® is the ideal solution for construction of decks over solid surfaces where strength, durability and ease of installation is important. Unlike timber decking frames, steel or aluminum decking frames are built to stand test of time.

Perfect for use over waterproof membranes or for renovation of existing tiled or concrete floors. The combination of pedestals and low-profile joists enables a minimal increase from the existing to finished floor level.

The height adjustable NIVO pedestals are available in a range of sizes and are purposefully designed to suit the StructurAL® joists to provide a level deck surface.

The versatile aluminium joist sections can be used with the Cobra hidden-fix clips or traditional self-drilling deck screws.


StructurAL® is a complete solution for construction of low height decks over solid surfaces.

Why Aluminium Deck Framing System is Better?

  • Complete system: all components are designed to work together for a simple and efficient deck installation
  • Low deck height: combination of deck pedestals, joists and deck enables a deck floor from 103 mm above the existing surface
  • No floor penetrations: the pedestals sit on the existing floor and is the ideal solution for decks above waterproof membranes
  • Indoor/outdoor flow: a range of pedestal heights that are each adjustable to provide a level floor from indoor to outdoor areas
  • Durabilty: The combination of polypropylene pedestals, aluminium joists and stainless-steel fixings results in a system that withstands the harshest conditions for a long deck life
  • Light weight and stable: ultra-light weight components combine to provide a level and stable frame with high load capacity
