Non slip decking and ice

By November 30, 2016 June 12th, 2019 No Comments

Today is an icy day. One of many this winter I expect. So, is that curtains for your timber decking until the spring? Is icy decking just too risky to use at this time of year?

The answer most likely depends on whether you have a non slip decking surface on your boards. If you have, then the reassuring grip is not only useful when it rains. Ice and winter moisture can make things rather slippery underfoot where decking is concerned, and having a non slip decking product such as DeckWright Inserts installed can make things much safer for everyone.

No need to suffer in silence

But what if you’ve not got round to it yet? You meant to do something about this during the summer and never did. Do you suffer in silence across the winter and wait patiently for the spring to arrive? Not so! You can install DeckWright Inserts throughout the year – even in the winter months.

DeckWright Inserts can be fitted to grooved decking that has already been laid. Adhered with a specially formulated adhesive, the deck boards do not need to be bone dry prior to installation. In fact any remaining moisture in the timber deck will work with the adhesive and not cause a problem at all.

Want non slip? What are you waiting for?

If you meant to create a non slip decking surface in the summer and now regret delaying, get hold of some DeckWright Inserts, wrap up warm on a dry day and easily fit them to your deck boards now, so that even on Christmas Day, you can enjoy a hot mug of something from the safety of your all-weather timber decking.
