The Duradek™ Cool-Dek Line
NO “SPECIAL TECHNOLOGY” NEEDED!
Don’t be limited by fancy terminology and superficial jargon when it comes to “cool” deck surfaces. The cool touch comes from the reflectance and emittance on the surface temperature, not from catchy names.
The Duradek vinyl colors that stay the coolest during those hot summer days make up our Duradek Cool-Dek Line.

The Cool-Dek line includes our top 5 “coolest” colors — up to 16% cooler than our warmest color, Cork Espresso and 18% cooler than concrete. Arctic Quartz, true to its name, is our #1 coolest color.
Remember, you don’t need any special, patented thermal technology to have a walkable surface – even on those hot summer days.
The Duradek colors classified as Cool-Dek provide a cooler option for bare feet, pet paws, and even the living or storage space under your deck. Our claims are substantiated by a combination of our internal heat testing and Atlas Material SRI Testing.
If a deck surface that is cooler under-foot is an important feature for you, choose one of the 5 attractive options in Duradek’s Cool-Dek line. Download this information on the Duradek Cool-Dek Line here, or contact a Dealer for a sample.
For those that want to know: What Is SRI?
A composite index called the Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) is used by the U.S. Green Building Council and others to estimate how hot a surface will get when exposed to full sun. The temperature of a surface depends on the surface’s reflectance and emittance, as well as solar radiation.
