Captain Cook Museum, Whitby
The existing timber decking was rotten, and slippery in wet conditions
GripFast-BoardWalk recommended the use of GRIPFAST BoardWalk, a revolutionary new concept in outdoor decking. Unlike traditional timber decking which rots and becomes slippery when wet, GRIPFAST BoardWalk is manufactured from rot-resistant glass fibre and is manufactured with an integral anti slip surface which provides a safe walking surface even in wet conditions.
What’s more, GRIPFAST Boardwalk even looks like traditional timber decking. Available in three colours, the museum chose ‘pale birch’ to blend in with their colour scheme.
Each 25mm thick load-bearing BoardWalk Plank was quickly and easily installed onto a timber subframe using stainless steel countersunk screws.
Each plank has a design life of 30 years and provides a slip resistant surface which is rated as ‘Low Slip Potential’ by the UK Slip Resistance Group.
Planks were easily cut down on site to shorter lengths to suit the specific area
Manufactured in the UK by Polydeck Limited, the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of anti slip products.
