One of the primary concerns relating to the installation of a new outdoor decking system, relates to safety, especially 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.
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.
Unlike many other traditional decking materials, the systems which have been developed by iDecking, completely waterproof your deck or roof deck
area with an aesthetically pleasing, and durable, slip-resistant finish.
Offering Further Evidence
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:
Selecting The Correct Products
It really is not possible to overemphasize the importance of choosing a decking product which offers the longest lasting and safest solution for the particular project. Designers should always be aware of the uses on schemes where they are specifying and therefore select the correct decking products accordingly.
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.
