UPM ProFi Deck: for any type of project
UPM ProFi Deck has been used for rather unusual a project: the equipment of a bus shelter opposite the aquatic centre Aquatis near Paron, in the city of Fougères. Aquatis is part of a large sports complex; it is well integrated in its natural environment and it enjoys a high quality landscaping.
The community of Fougères had launched a tender for landscaping in this area, including the installation of a decking around the bus shelter. The landscape company Jourdanière Nature got the business. If initially, the site should be equipped with pine or exotic wood, the recycled composition of UPM ProFi Deck was finally preferred by the technical services of the city. The Autumn Brown shade was chosen to recall the color of the wood. Peltier Bois has distributed the UPM ProFi Deck material.
The boards were mounted on autoclave treated pine joists. According to David Josseaume, work supervisor at Jourdanière Nature, "the UPM ProFi Deck can be worked out very easily. The clip system is convenient. It's been nearly eight months since the decking has been installed and nothing has changed."
