The RMS Titanic, also known as the Titanic, was an Olympic class cruise ship that sank after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage in April 1912. The Titanic was built by the Harland and Wolf shipyards in Belfast, Ireland and was the largest and most luxurious passenger ship of its time. The Titanic is famous for its romantic love disaster movie filmed in 1994, and to this day, the name of the Titanic still makes people feel thunderous. Many things on board the Titanic are very eye-catching, and the large area of the teak deck is also very eye-catching, but few people will think about why it needs to install a teak deck?

Firstly, the teak deck has insulation function. In the past, the hull of yachts was usually made of steel, but in those days, air conditioning was not yet common, and steel decks would absorb heat, which would cause the entire deck temperature of yachts to be very high, seriously affecting the comfort of yachts. And the teak deck can be insulated, even if exposed to prolonged exposure to the sea, it can still maintain a relatively comfortable temperature.

Secondly, the teak deck can prevent rusting of the hull. We know that the environment at sea is very harsh, the ocean environment is very humid, and the alkalinity at sea is very high, which is highly corrosive to metals. In addition, the wind and sun in Shanghai make steel hulls prone to rust. And teak has extremely high stability, rich in oil and iron, which make it less prone to deformation, resistant to sea insects, acid and alkali, especially moisture-proof and corrosion-resistant, and can effectively protect the ship from corrosion.

Furthermore, the teak deck has anti slip function. Teak wood is rich in silicon components,. Teak wood contains a high amount of silicon, which is sandy, making it highly frictional when walking on wet oak or pine boards. Most people experience foot slippage when walking on wet oak or pine boards, but this does not happen on teak boards.

In addition to these functional functions, the most important reason for installing a teak deck on the Titanic is its decorative function. In that era, the concept of advocating nature had already emerged, and the visual impact of installing a teak deck on such a huge super oil tanker was undoubtedly very impressive, playing a great role in enhancing the luxury of the entire tanker.
