Avoid Any Painful Accidents With Our Non-Slip Decking

We have had a mixed bag of weather so far this summer. A month’s worth of rain is set to imminently fall down and hit most parts of the country, and then temperatures are set to soar. It wouldn’t be a true British summer without some showers interspersed with some scorching hot sunshine.

UPVC Decking

If you refuse to let any wet weather spoil things and still like to head outside to your traditional timber decking area, even when it’s raining, or use it soon after a showery spell, make sure that you tread very carefully!

Wooden decking can become extremely slippy in wet conditions, and will continue to be slippy if you don’t treat it properly due to the build-up of algae.

The last thing you want is to take a tumble and hurt yourself, but that’s the risk you take if you’re not prepared to put in the maintenance that timber decking needs. This maintenance should include:

  • Using a stiff brush to remove any debris, moss or mould that has formed on the surface.




  • Washing the decking down with a hose pipe or pressure-washer to get rid of any other bits of dirt that have built-up and not shifted.

You need to carry out this routine on a regular basis, especially after a particularly poor spell of weather.

Don’t have the time or inclination to do it?

What you should do in that case is replace your traditional decking for our UPVC decking as it is both maintenance-free and slip-resistant.

You won’t need to do anything to it and you also won’t have to fear losing your footing. Walking on it barefoot won’t be a problem either as it is splinter-free.

People will mistake it for timber decking as it has a natural wood effect with real woodgrain.
