Why are they innovative?
Our systems do not restrict any aspect of design, one can use stones, timber or composite as covering material, build stairs, ramps, platforms, bridges or cantilevered decks all with a guaranty and validation of a heavy load bearing structure.
Outdoor decks are nowadays a part of any prestigious building, whether it is any private residence, hotel or even a shopping mall. While the decking boards mainly serve a visual aspect the substructure has the most important part. Eurotec produces high-quality substructures that are highly load-bearing, time-efficient in construction and with an excellent price-performance ratio.

The basic components are fully adjustable pedestals suitable for timber, composite joists, galvanized steel, aluminium profiles and even large format stone slabs. The way to build everlasting decks.
