Increase Useable Space in Medium Density Builds with Rooftop Decking

With New Zealand’s continued growth in medium-density housing (MDH), it’s essential that outdoor living areas are still included in designs.

Despite medium-density housing easing pressure on land-supply when measured on a ‘per-dwelling’ basis, it still reduces the space for tranquil, green spaces at street level. This is why, with a bit of creativity and careful planning, it can open the door for scenic common areas above carparks and buildings. With a strong and durable substrate and an attractive waterproof decking surface, designers can create a recreational space from an otherwise redundant one.

Viking Dec-K-ing offers a simple and hard-wearing slip-resistant waterproofing membrane, providing the ultimate underfoot finish. It is a PVC membrane reinforced with a polyester mesh scrim inherent in the sheet to provide latitudinal strength and puncture resistance.

Despite Dec-k-ing being installed mostly in residential situations, it is increasingly being specified for multi-level apartment complexes, retirement and nursing villages, childcare and other institutional facilities such as schools, in order to provide an extra multi-purpose space.

Construction materials are only as effective as the standard to which they’re applied. Accordingly, Viking Dec-K-ing membrane is only installed by members of Viking Roofspec’s licensed applicator network who are trained at Viking’s exclusive licensing school and use their experience to ensure a craftsman-like finish.

Viking Dec-King comes with a 20-year product warranty. It is a BRANZ-appraised, all-in-one system that is available in five finishes ranging from the exposed aggregate concrete-like look of 'Sand Pebble' to the earthy granite look of ‘Baltic’.
