Following the refurbishment of Caversham Avenue Footbridge, Enfield council approached us again to use GRIPFAST NT Slurry system on a similar footbridge in Duck Lees Lane.

In this case study, we explain how we used one of our slurry systems to refurbish the Duck Lees Lane footbridge following the same process as our Caversham Avenue project.


The footbridge was wearing away and becoming a slip hazard for pedestrians, and the council did not want drill fixings into the bridge. Polydeck’s GRIPFAST NT Slurry system was the perfect solution to keep the bridge watertight and not add to the dead load of the bridge.

Once the existing surface was mechanically removed, a primer was applied before the GRIPFAST NT Slurry was added to the area and then dressed in a 1-3mm grey aggregate. After the application was complete, the excess aggregate could be swept away.


Used in a combination with dynagrip aggregate, GRIPFAST NT Slurry has a typical design life of 20 years, ensuring a durable and long-lasting solution.

The benefits don’t settle there, with a variety of advantages, such as:

  • Lightweight
  • Anti-slip
  • Waterproof membrane
  • Cost effective
  • Covers any surface

Designed for use on steel, concrete and aluminium bridges, the GRIPFAST NT Slurry was the perfect solution.

Bridge engineers at Enfield Council were happy with the results and said they’d be using the product again on other bridges.
