Dek-King 2G: premium synthetic teak which is cooler & lighter than 1G material

Dek-King 2G premium synthetic teak boat decking is 30% cooler and 32% lighter in weight than its traditional synthetic counterpart.

Available in 9 realistically grained colour combinations and incorporating state-of-the-art nanotechnology, Dek-King 2G offers you the future of decking, today.

We only use UV stabilized outdoor grade PVC which means that you will find that it is easier to look after than wood and that it doesn’t lose its good looks to sunlight or harsh conditions of the marine environment.

Cooler underfoot

Noticeably cooler underfoot than 1G synthetic teak.

Lighter in weight

Less weight for increased efficiency under sail or power.

Manufactured using state-of-the-art technology, our new material is also more environmentally friendly as it contains less PVC, uses a phthalate-free plasticiser, and is REACH compliant whilst remaining 100% recyclable.

With our vision for continuous product improvement we are proud to say that Dek-King 2G offers you the following benefits:

Superior lifelike graining effect

Improved durability
Increased durabilityWe have modified our formula to offer you the best possible performing product

Dek-King 2G synthetic teak has been designed to replicate the graining found on natural timber, therefore the graining effect we provide will differ between planks. This non-uniformity is intentional and an inherent feature of the product.

But don’t just take our word for it, see the quality for yourself!

Dek-King 2G synthetic teak is now available from Wilks’ expanding global network of distributors in high quality, pre-fabricated, fully welded decks. For information about our distributors and installers please visit:

Dek-King 2G Synthetic Teak – The Scientific Analysis

Specific Heat per volume unit* Thermal Conductivity**
1G Material (Standard Synthetic Teak) 1.825 MJ/m3K 0.194 W/mK
2G Material 1.245 MJ/m3K 0.143 W/mK


The 2G sample tested has a lower thermal conductivity, 26.3% less than the 1G sample.  This is as expected when comparing the densities of each product, with the lower density 2G resulting in a lower thermal conductivity. Similarly, the 2G sample gave a 31.8% reduction in Specific Heat per volume.


* Definition of Specific Heat Capacity per volume unit: The heat required to raise the temperature of the volume unit of a material by one degree.  The higher the value, the easier it is to transport heat through the material. For any given “material”, the heat capacity of a body is directly proportional to the amount of “material” it contains (measured in terms of mass volume). Doubling the amount of “material” in a body doubles its heat capacity.

** Definition of Thermal Conductivity: The rate at which heat passes through a specified material, expressed as the amount of heat that flows per unit time through a unit area with a temperature gradient of one degree per unit distance. Heat transfer occurs at a higher rate across materials of high thermal conductivity than across materials of low thermal conductivity.
