Caravan supplier designs new anti-slip decking product

DeckWright anti-slip

Decking has natural appeal, DeckWright anti-slip is perfect for entertaining and relaxing on and is relatively low-maintenance. 

But there is one major drawback – it can become very slippery when wet.

And with the Great British weather as unpredictable as ever, caravan industry supplier WJ Group has launched a new product to help holidaymakers enjoy the great outdoors safely.

The timber and metal components business – a fully-approved member of National Caravan Council (NCC) – has designed and made an anti-slip product for decking.

DeckWright anti-slip inserts can be retrofitted to almost any grooved decking quickly and easily using standard tools.

Hopes for national roll-out of Caravan Park Watch

Hopes for national roll-out of Caravan Park Watch

There are hopes that Lincolnshire’s innovative Caravan Park Watch scheme may be rolled out nationally.

Inspector Andy Morrice was recently invited to the Holiday Home Exhibition at Birmingham’s NEC, where he gave a presentation and participated in a Q & A session.

 

The scheme was launched in 2014 when Inspector Morrice was the local inspector for the coastal area. The Lincolnshire coast has one of the highest concentrations of caravans in Europe and Inspector Morrice got together with caravan park owners and representatives from the caravan manufacture and insurance industries to discuss ways to help reduce the number of burglaries that occur each year, especially during the closed winter season.
