An Easy Solution to Slippery Decking

The perils of a slippery deck and how to prevent it

The Problem

Traditional timber garden decking can become extremely slippery due to a number of environmental factors such as water, moss, algae and mould. Despite the best efforts of regular jet-washing maintenance, and the odd coat of an anti-slip decking varnish or paint, this can sometimes fail to overcome the problem. So, what alternative solution is available? We believe that our Anti-Slip Decking Strips may just be the answer to your problems.

The Solution – Anti-Slip Decking Strips

Anti-Slip Decking Strips are available in a variety of colours and sizes to suit both new-build, or refurbished timber decks, and once installed provide an unbeatable level of slip resistance, whilst retaining the aesthetics of timber decking.

They are tough, weatherproof, anti-slip strips that can be simply placed on top of the decking surface and fixed into place easily and quickly with screws. They are ready for use instantly and are moss, algae and mould resistant.

Our Anti-Slip Decking Strips have been used extensively in commercial and residential applications and are ideal for marinas, parks, balconies, patio areas etc.
