In the choice of materials for two new blocks of flats in Arabianranta, Helsinki, the aim was to move beyond the usual options. UPM ProFi Deck emerged as an alternative to traditional wooden boards for the balconies of these buildings, located in a marine environment.
The choice for the balcony decking material was the stylish stone-grey UPM ProFi Deck. According to the developers, UPM’s wood plastic composite offered the ideal surface – one that would stand the tests of time, wear, frost, and sun. It was not only the modern and distinctive appearance that settled the choice but also the ability of UPM ProFi Deck to withstand extreme weather conditions.
