Slip Resistant Decking
Decking with in-built anti-slip strips designed to prevent slips and falls.
Anti-slip strips are factory applied to the decking. A blend of resin, fillers and hard-wearing anti-slip aggregates are injected
into grooves of the decking and allowed to cure. The aggregate on the finished strips sits proud of the timber surface. It
provides hardwood and softwood decking with additional grip, particularly in wet or icy weather. The anti-slip strips are
applied before the application of stains or preservatives.
The aggregate and resin infills give a certain amount of protection against wear. More importantly, the strips provide
additional grip under foot for pedestrians, particularly when timbers are wet or icy, thus reducing the risks of slips and falls.
The product has been tested to BS7976-2: 2002 in accordance with the guidelines recommended by the U.K. Slip Resistance
Group. We recommend two strips of non-slip for domestic applications and three strips for commercial and public areas.
Anti-slip strips can be applied to deck boards with grooves that have a width of between 5-10mm and a depth between
4-6mm. Deck boards are available in a choice of profiles – smooth and grooved. To further enhance your deck, we are able
to offer a factory finish coating which will protect the look of your deck for a minimum of five years.
