Case study: Craig Cwm Celle Salem
Installer: Simon Thomas Deck & Design
Products used: Trex Transcend® in Island Mist and Tiki Torch, Trex Signature® Railings, Trex CustomCurve™ oven
Simon Thomas Deck & Design utilised several popular Trex products to create this deck in Swansea, resulting in an eye-catching outdoor space named as Deck of the Year at the 2021 Arbordeck Awards.
Both creativity and skill were at the top of the agenda for this deck, which features a striking inlay design inspired by the Celtic symbol, triquetra.
Through the use of several Trex products and complementary accessories, Simon Thomas Deck & Design was able to create an outdoor living space as practical as it is beautiful.
Popular Trex Transcend® shade Island Mist was used as the deck’s main colour, accented by Tiki Torch borders. Alongside these outer borders, the deck also features Trex Signature® Railing – the ideal safety solution that doesn’t compromise on aesthetics.
However, the standout feature of this deck is its unique inlay; a curved snake design that runs across the full length of the deck. Inspired by the Celtic symbol triquetra, the one-of-a-kind feature showcases Simon’s skill in using the Trex CustomCurve™ oven to create perfectly-shaped and sized composite decking boards.
The installation of this deck also tested Simon’s skill thanks to its location. Working on his own, he successfully built the deck on a balcony on the side of a steep bank which was 14 feet high.
The full effect
Using the perfect combination of creativity and skill, this Swansea-based deck provides the homeowner with a real ‘wow’ factor outdoor space.
