Shark Deck is an innovative product that is changing the marine industry when it comes to comfort and safety. Made from durable, closed-cell PE/EVA foam, Shark Deck provides a hard-wearing, stylish, and easy to maintain alternative to molded-in anti-slip or paint-on textures for traction in wet areas.

Developed with pressure-sensitive acrylic based high-bond adhesive backing - Shark Deck is easy to install, will drastically improve comfort and safety, and will have your boat looking better than ever!

Yeah... but where did it come from? Through our expertise and innovation, we spent years looking for the perfect foam solution only to find it didn’t exist. That’s how we ran into Ultralon- world leader of foam production for orthotics and high-performance sports. We got together, played mad-scientist, and formulated our own foam with the qualities we wanted, and Shark Deck was born.
Can be applied anywhere you’d like to provide fatigue relief and comfort, increased traction, upgrade the look, or provide protection: boat & dock fenders, swim platforms, helm pads, trailers, rails, coolers, gunwales, steps, as an alternative for carpet, replacement for molded non-skid or teak flooring, hot tubs/pools, etc.

After rigorous testing, Shark Deck has been designed with a higher density that allows for increased temperature resistance, and improved durability over other leading competitors. Improved durability allows it to endure harsh environments with higher tensile, elongation, and tear strength.

That means:
  • Improved heat tolerance, does not become too hot to stand on
  • Closed-cell construction – won’t absorb water
  • Improved traction
  • Excellent insulator
  • Good impact absorption
  • Lightweight- More than 20% lighter than competition
  • Higher resistance to light amplification than competition
  • Mold and mildew resistance
    Required tools:
    Sharp razor blade or knife
    Alcohol-based cleaner, isopropyl/rubbing alcohol
    Clean rags
    1-2” wide Masking Tape
    Roller or squeegee
    • Clean and prep the surface before installation using an alcohol-based cleaner, such as isopropyl or rubbing alcohol
    • Allow the area to dry completely prior to installation
    • Do a dry fit before beginning installation to determine exact placement, alignment, and orientation of each piece
    • Flip the pad over and use a sharp razor blade to carefully cut a line down the middle of the paper backing, being careful not cut into the foam
    • Gently peel up an inch or so of the backing on both sides of the cut you just made to expose the edge for easier removal and flip the pad back over into the exact placement you want it installed
    • Secure one side of the pad to the deck or surface with masking tape to prevent shifting or movement during installation
    • To begin applying, lift the un-taped side of the pad and start slowly pulling the paper backing away from the center towards the outer edge while smoothing down on the top of the pad firmly with your other hand, squeegee, or roller as you move to prevent air from being trapped underneath
    • Apply pressure along all the newly applied edges with your hand, squeegee, or roller to help secure the bond
    • Remove the tape and repeat the process on the side of the foam pad
      Cleaning:
      Clean spills and messes immediately to reduce possible staining. Some materials can stain the decking if not quickly removed. Ex: ketchup/mustard, fishhooks left to rust, fish blood, bird droppings, etc.

      Clean dirt or stains with an all-purpose cleaner with water and a medium-bristle deck brush. Mix the cleaner with warm water in a bucket and dunk the brush in. Work the soapy water into the decking with the brush until the dirt comes up. Rinse with water.

      To remove fish blood: Mix 1 cup of bleach with 1 gallon of warm water. Dunk the brush in the bleach water and scrub in a circular motion until the blood is removed. Repeat as needed.

      Do not use mineral spirits for cleaning

      Upkeep:
      Avoid long-term storage of items on the decking such as inflatable pool toys, tools, or water bottles. Keep decking away from reflective surfaces or from under glass. These objects can refract/reflect light, thereby concentrating the beams to a level that can be destructive to the decking.

      For longevity after installation, it is recommended that the surfaces be covered or stored out of the sun when not in use.
