What about covering up my deck hatches?
It’s easy! Place the DSC directly over the hatches and cover them up; that is unless you can’t fold the DECKadence® Marine Carpet back to access your hatches. Hatches make your deck look sub-divided and smaller. By virtue of the DSE covering the entire deck, it appears bigger and cleaner looking. When you want in, simply fold the DSC over and presto… there’s your deck hatch! If your hatch is in a place that’s not practical to simply fold the mat back, then simply cut around the hatch and use deck snaps to hold the small pieces in place. We’ve done all the hard work on our marine carpet / marine flooring to make sure that everything is easy for you.
DECKadence® Synthetic Marine Carpet does NOT require DECK SNAPS. However, if you have an exposed edge such as a swim platform or a skiff platform, or decided you just want to snap it in place, then it really is a snap! There’s a new adhesive male snap (no drilling) out now made by “YKK SNAD”. It is a self-adhesive snap fastener. See our recommendations page for details.
