Product DescriptionSeaForce notched grating material lets you easily build your own customized cockpit grate. Constructed of high-quality, kiln dried, fully aged teak straight from the forests of Thailand, each SeaForce product features a naturally high oil content for incredible durability over decades. SeaForce Teak resists warping, rotting, and damage from insects and withstands extreme weather conditions such as salt, sun, snow, and rain. Intricate grain patterns and color variations make each unique piece beautiful to the eyes and to the touch.
With the proper application of teak oil/sealer annually, SeaForce Teak can be left out in the weather and still maintain its golden color all year long. SeaForce Teak matures to a silver gray without applied seal, but can be restored with a good teak cleaner and one or two liberal applications of high-quality teak oil. SeaForce Teak cleans up easily with soap and water, but you should avoid using chemical cleaners. Traditional assembly techniques like dove-tail and mortice, tenon joints, and countersunk screw fittings along with waterproof adhesive ensure strength and durability. SeaForce Teak comes sanded and hand-finished to a rich, elegant luster.
SeaForce grating material comes in 3 thickness/cutout sizes with corresponding flat grate strips. Use notched strips in both directions, or use notched strips in one direction on the bottom layer and flat strips in the opposite direction on the top layer. Measure, cut, and assemble with glue; drill with a countersunk bit; and screw together with brass or stainless screws. The use of screws is especially important in the construction of larger grates.
