The Shore in Sarasota brings a little piece of Southern California to the Gulf coast of Florida. This restaurant serves fantastic food as well as providing a shop that features The Shore brand. Several years ago, they restaurant brought in a contractor to give their dining area a new look. After contemplating several different decking options, they opted for the 24" x 24" Ipe deck tiles.

The main dining area features the 24" x 24" Ipe deck tiles, as well as ipe louvres.

The deck tiles are beautiful and durable and fit the aesthetic of the restaurant. Their slip resistant qualities also make it safe for customers. To complement the ipe deck tiles, they chose ipe lumber for handrails. The fact that ipe doesn't splinter means customers can run their hands up and down the railings with no need to worry about splinters.

The Ipe louvre was a nice feature that blocked the views of the kitchen without blocking all the light coming into the dining area.

Even in commercial settings, ipe excels other building materials. It has a lifespan of over 75 years, a high flame spread rating, and it naturally resists mold and decay.

The retracted roof allows sunlight to enter the dining area and makes the Ipe deck tiles shine.
The lounge area looks over St. Armand's Circle. The Ipe handrails give a nice smooth surface for customers to lean on.

The Ipe deck tiles will last as long as our long length decking, even in commercial settings.
