One of the main problems with decking is the issue of how slippery it becomes when wet. Believe it or not, it’s not actually the decking being wet that is the problem; wood is naturally porous and it doesn’t get too slick when wet – the problem is the fungus that grows on the wood after it has been wet. The fungus is barely noticeable when the decking is dry, but when the wood is wet it is incredibly slippery which highly increases the risk of slipping and falling.
Extra Friction Reduces Slipperiness
One of the easiest and most efficient ways of reducing the slipperiness of your decking is by creating extra friction on the surface, which will provide extra grip for people to walk on. While there are a number of solutions which are perfect for small areas of decking in a garden, such as skid resistant paint or tape material with grit ingrained into it, these generally aren’t suitable for large areas of decking which are common in commercial premises.
Large areas of decking require a more durable, reliable and efficient non slip solution to ensure that the risk of slipping and falling is substantially lowered –businesses can’t afford to take the risk of people falling on their decking as costly lawsuits often follow!
Here at Polydeck we provide a wide range of tailor-made anti slip flooring solutions, including anti slip decking. Designed to either fit over the top of current decking or replace it altogether, anti slip decking is the perfect solution to covering large areas of decking to provide a safe walking surface at any time of year.
