Wooden decks: How to achieve greater protection?


Wooden decks are primarily used for restaurant terraces, hotels, viewpoints, pools, and gardens. However, to maintain their beauty and durability, it is advisable to apply a coating that protects them from elements such as moisture, temperature fluctuations, wind, solar wear, and more.

Due to these factors, a reliable and effective solution to prevent the deterioration of the wooden deck is the application of DECK PROFESSIONAL. It is a two-component water-based protective varnish for wooden floors that can withstand heavy foot traffic and atmospheric conditions that can damage the wood overtime.


Before considering products from other brands, you should know that DECK PROFESSIONAL ensures maximum protection. It is a finish with an advanced formula that penetrates deep into the wood, providing a protective barrier against the elements, moisture, and UV damage. This means that the decks will remain in optimal condition for years.

Due to its high resistance to abrasion caused by friction and wear, the treatment’s lifespan is significantly superior to that of other wood floor products.

Iki Parquet products undergo rigorous quality testing, so you can trust in the durability and performance of Deck Professional.

Likewise, it can withstand heavy foot traffic and atmospheric conditions that can damage the wood overtime.

In fact, it contains UV filters that protect the wood from solar radiation. This additional UV filter content makes the coating much more resistant to the action of ultraviolet rays, preventing it from losing its natural beauty and strength.

Its application is simple and quick, providing a uniform finish. You can do it yourself or rely on professional assistance. This means less downtime for your outdoor spaces and more time to enjoy them.

It is environmentally friendly. Iki Parquet cares about the environment, and Deck Professional is a nature-friendly choice. It is designed to be safe for both the wood and the individuals applying it. You will notice this right away as it emits a low odor during varnishing.

Additionally, being a water-based product, it allows for easy cleaning of the working tools with water.

In this image, we can see how, due to the passage of time, weathering, and the heavy foot traffic it has endured, the wooden deck has worn down, acquiring a grayish color. Furthermore, it has lost all its shine and developed cracks and breakages due to the lack of protection with a special coating for wooden decks. This is a clear example that its care and maintenance are essential to prolong its good appearance and daily use.

How to maintain the protection of wooden decks?
