The Application

  • Outdoor Play Area

Customer Problem

  • Existing timber decking was slippery in wet conditions and the anti slip paint that had been applied was peeling off.
  • The nursery also needed to ensure that the anti slip surface was not so aggressive that if small children tripped over they would graze themselves.
  • The nursery also wanted a product that looked like real timber decking and was finished in an ‘outdoor’ green colour.
  • Finally, the nursery needed to ensure that the strips were cut to match the shape of the outdoor decking area.

Polydeck Solution:

  • Polydeck Limited recommended the use of GRIPFAST BoardWalk 6, a revolutionary new concept in outdoor decking strips.
  • The BoardWalk strips are manufactured from a 6mm thick rot-resistant glass fibre panel and are designed to be screwed down on top of existing timber decking.
  • The Boardwalk strips look like real timber decking and provide a slip resistant surface which is safe to walk on, but not too aggressive to cause grazes if someone were to fall over.
  • The strips were easily cut down on site to shorter lengths and shapes to suit the specific area.
  • Installation was carried out over the weekend to minimise disruption at the nursery.
