Flexiteek is a synthetic material and it is made of composite materials, 100% recyclable to other products. The surface of Flexiteek has a non–slip quality that is superb and nobody yet on first viewing or touching think it is anything other than real teak. The Flexiteek deck will not fade, dry out, split or crack and requires minimal maintenance. You can enjoy your beautiful deck instead of worrying about maintenance and poor quality.
Flexiteek comes in three standard colours to mimic the teak, however unlike teak Flexiteek stays the colour you choose without the scrubbing and endless maintenance; Teak – Has the look of a fresh laid teak deck Weathered – Has the look of an gently aged teak deck, grey after it’s been outdoors for a few months Scrubbed – Has the fresh look of a light teak once you’ve spent hours scrubbing it!
But we are not restricted by nature! How about a black plank? For your modern RIB or a White plank with grey caulking for your heads or, even, your bathroom at home…

Flexiteek is sold as complete welded and waterproofed panels to boat manufacturers, boat yards or to the yacht owner. The customer can have a tailor-made panel to install themselves or let the authorized Flexiteek distributor to it all. All Flexiteek distributors are well trained and have the largest network among all suppliers of synthetic decking.
Do-it-yourself installations can be performed with Isiteek material, although this requires some skills to ensure the desired quality and good looks. For more information of Isiteek please go to
Flexiteek always have and will continue to strive for excellence. We learn through experience and pushing the boundaries. It is this commitment that keeps Flexiteek at the top of their game.
Teak, Tectona grandis, has always been used for decking on boats. It looks beautiful but requires lots of maintenance to keep it that way. Fast plantation grown teak has a lot of soft fiber and doesn’t last long. The best teak comes from the rain forests of Burma; these are now under protection due to the large exploitation and devastation of teak during the last century. Flexiteek is a product that can fill the need for teak but without exploiting our worlds beautiful rainforest. With nearly 200 000m² of Flexiteek sold, we have “saved” 2400 cubic meters of teak on the assumption of replacing 12 mm quality teak.

Boat manufactures are satisfied with Flexiteek as a product and Benny Martinsson, managing director and owner of Nord West Yatchs says “For us it´s important to offer our customers different alternatives. Flexiteek has proven to have the high quality that we want for our boats” and Pat Wiesner, Vice President of Engineering, Regal Marine says “When we partner with another company we want our partner to be the leader within their industry and Flexiteek is just that. Flexiteek has helped to make out boats look more luxurious and it has helped us to set our brand apart from the rest.”
