There are plenty of options to choose from when ordering a custom swim platform pad from SeaDek but the two predominant options are embossed or faux teak and the color combinations. All of our pads are made from closed-cell eva foam material, similar to the material used for sandals. This material is soft yet durable and since it is closed-cell it does not absorb water.
Our embossed surface texture is a thermoformed dot pattern pressed into the foam not unlike the surface of a basketball. It is an excellent non-skid surface in both wet and dry conditions. Customers can choose from a combination of any two of our standard colors. We do not recommend black as a top color as unlike most of our other colors, black will absorb heat more quickly and this may effect the life expectancy of the pad.
Our faux teak is made from the same foam but rather than a thermoformed patter the surface is brushed to create a wood-like effect. Next, teak lines are CNC cut into the pad which complete the teak look.
The pads below both fit a Sea Ray 350 Sundancer but as you can see two very unique looks have been achieved. The first is titanium faux teak and the second in thermoform embossed camel over mocha. One of the pads is to be featured in an upcoming episode of Ship Shape TV. Both pads are available on our online store: http://www.seadek.com/c-43-sea-ray.aspx
