Simple and fast to install, Scyon™ Secura™ external flooring can be used as an external structural flooring substrate for tile finishes over timber or lightweight steel floor joists. It can also be used as external substrate for tiled residential balconies and decks, as an alternative to particle board, plywood or compressed fibre cement.
Secura™ helps give peace of mind against moisture damage to balconies and decks. Secura™ exterior flooring is sealed on all sides with an advanced polymer coating that helps protect the board from moisture-related problems. A topcoat on the surface of the board provides good adhesion.
The continuous mesh reinforcement on the underside enhances the heavy-duty performance of Scyon,™ adding extra strength and impact resistance to deliver a suitable external residential flooring substrate.
For balconies that aren’t over habitable rooms – verandas, for example – no additional waterproofing membrane is needed once Secura™exterior flooring is installed (a priming coat is recommended to be applied over all sheets before tiling, refer to the manual.) For balconies over habitable rooms, a waterproofing system needs to be applied.
Secura™ exterior flooring is now available in a thickness of 22 mm (2400 mm × 600 mm sheet size), suitable for 600-mm floor joist centres, meaning there is less joist, and installation is faster and more efficient. scyon.com.au
