Timber slip-proof Decking, Concrete Bearers. UK, Full Method.

The building at the end of the video is Jordans Mill in Biggleswade, well worth a coffee and walk round 🙂

Non slip decking is a great way to keep decking a natural material and remain safe to use over the seasons and years. Not everybody wants or can afford composite decking and with minimal grip resistance isn’t always the best option. Wood fails when it is in contact with soil which is full of enzymes that eat through posts, sleepers and gravel boards etc. The idea of concrete bearers is that nothing wooden is in contact with the ground.

For the safest most cost effective slip resistance board, Gripsure is a great product for all occasions although we don’t recommend this product for play areas or play equipment (children crawling on hands and knees etc)
