One of the major concerns facing many decking installation teams relates to safety, particularly when the completed deck is located near to a swimming pool, jacuzzi or near the beach and therefore likely to come into regular contact with water.
It really is not possible to overemphasise the importance of choosing a decking product which offers the longest lasting and safest solution for the particular project.
Thankfully, a new innovative decking product is available in the UK which offers both slip-resistant and splinter proof properties. This product is called iDecking.

Creating a Slip Resistant Finish
iDecking have spent many years perfecting an innovative, environmentally friendly, non-splinter timber decking solution offering all the good looks of the real thing but without the flaw of other products.

area with an aesthetically pleasing, and durable, slip-resistant finish.
To help offer further evidence relating to the slip resistance of the iDecking boards, we have carried out some slip tests on our decking products recently. The tests are carried out according to BS7976 -2 Pendulum Slip Test.
The test is carried out via a pendulum testing machine in at least 2 directions, both in a dry state and in a wet state. The results are as follows:
Don’t Accept Second Best
With a number of cheaper, inferior products on the market, it is essential that designers and installers choose products which are specially designed and selected to fit the purpose of the project. Thankfully, the range of iDecking products ticks all of the right boxes.
