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.
They come with a five-year warranty and there’s even an online calculator which will help you work out how much you need.
The inserts work by using a universally shaped plastic T-bar that holds a resin and aggregate formulation.
When fixed into a deck board groove using the specially formulated adhesive, the insert sits a little proud of the timber deck and provides a reassuring grip.
It is usual to apply DeckWright inserts to two grooves in each decking board for maximum effectiveness.
Investing in new decking? DeckWright can also be added to your choice of timber boards before you fit them through their anti-slip service – and there’s no minimum order required. This is also suitable for grooved composite decking.
Fully tested and approved, DeckWright can be used for both commercial and garden decking projects, providing a robust and attractive solution for non-slip decking inserts, with long-lasting results.
There is even a range of colours available ranging from eye-catching shades to muted tones which complement the wood.
The standard colour for DeckWright inserts is Granite Grey – designed to provide a subtle addition to the natural character of the timber deck – and is the one you’ll find the 25m kit.
However, for customers wishing to highlight this important safety enhancement more prominently or perhaps coordinate anti-slip decking inserts with a particular colour-scheme, Pillar Box Red, Bright Yellow and Cobalt Blue are available in 250 metre bulk boxes. Further colours are available on a bespoke basis depending on quantity.
