DecoDeck® Timber-Look Decking Granted Patent

DecoDeck®, the timber-look aluminium decking system by innovator DECO Australia, has been granted a Standard Patent. Patents recognise and protect designs featuring a new and inventive step which differs from existing technology.

The DecoDeck® system, which is made from solid aluminium extrusion and finished with Super Durable sublimated powder coated DecoWood slip-resistant finish, is a unique offering in the  Australian decking market. It features an inventive interconnecting board and connector design unlike any other aluminium decking option on the market. In 2020, the DecoDeck system received a Good Design Award for its unique design.

Receiving a patent means IP Australia have recognised that DecoDeck® is not only one of a kind in the market, but a unique invention created by DECO Australia, and have therefore awarded it protection against infringments or copying for the next 20 years in accordance with the Patents Act 1990.

DECO Director Ross Doonan said “receiving this patent is another great step in protecting DECO's Intellectual Property, which comprises Patents and Trademarks."

"DECO takes a lot of care and time in creating product designs that service the needs of our customers, and we always strive to protect the creations of our talented team. We have quality products and inventive designs unlike anything else on the market today, and it is crucial to protect both our products and designs.”

The granting of DecoDeck’s Standard Patent comes after DECO was successful in an infringement case in the Federal Court of Australia surrounding DECO's wall cladding Patent.  The cladding design, which is protected by an Innovation Patent, had been copied by a competitor.

“It is more crucial than ever that we do out utmost to protect Australian manufacturing and Australian Intellectual Property,” said Mr Doonan. “The importance of sovereign capability and Australian supply chains to the Australian economy cannot be understated.”

DECO Australia is an innovative leader when it comes to product design for Australia’s construction and manufacturing industries. This commitment to protecting their intellectual property highlights their dedication to protecting not only their own innovations but the Australian design and manufacturing industry overall.
