MyDek Decking at Triptych Bankside
At Triptych Bankside, the choice of MyDek’s non-combustible decking proved to be a game-changer for the project. MyDek’s aluminium decking was meticulously selected and seamlessly incorporated into the development for use across both balconies and terraces across the two towers. The project’s unique, irregularly shaped balconies posed a significant design and installation challenge, but MyDek’s team provided expert guidance and ensured that each section was laid out with precision. The contemporary finish of MyDek’s decking beautifully complements the building’s modern design, adding an extra layer of sophistication. Beyond aesthetics, MyDek’s choice offered a non-combustible, future-proof solution, aligning perfectly with the project’s commitment to safety and longevity.
Triptych Bankside on Working With MyDek
Speaking about the experience of working with the MyDek team, Triptych Bankside’s Project Design Manager, Nick Chamberlain, says, “Working with MyDek was seamless. We had issues at that time with the change in regulations in terms of the non-use of combustible materials in façades and balconies. We had balconies and terraces and MyDek was instrumental in helping us develop our proposals and implement the use of the materials across both areas.”
