Billed as the “ultimate solution” to slippery timber decking, DeckWright Inserts are now available to sell in a compact merchandising stand that also houses a video presentation, decking sample and sales leaflets, ensuring that the anti-slip product can “sell itself” from builders’ merchant stores.
Manufactured by WJ Group in Hull, DeckWright Inserts are a fully tested and approved ‘T’ shaped grit and resin product, supplied in 2.5 metre coiled lengths. Easy to cut and apply to most grooved decking boards, a specially formulated adhesive fixes the inserts into the necessary grooves, providing a robust anti-slip property that so many people are seeking.
Mark Eggleston, WJ Group MD comments: “It is extremely common for someone to lay timber decking and only then, appreciate the safety hazard of it becoming slippery when wet. DeckWright Inserts provide a cost effective and long lasting retrospective solution to this common problem, giving many merchants and retailers a clear sales opportunity from selling these clever inserts in their store.”
DeckWright Anti-Slip has been fully tested and approved by the Health and Safety Laboratory in Buxton in accordance with BS7976: 2002. The anti-slip decking manufacturing process is independently QA audited and is compliant with ISO 9001: 2008. Now, following feedback from stockists, the manufacturer has developed a compact, rigid card stand that presents DeckWright Inserts from a floor space of around half a square metre.

DeckWright Inserts can be retailed in 25 metre kits which include the adhesive (at £50 RRP) or as 2.5 metre coils (£6.99 RRP). Whilst some individuals might wish to anti-slip a small stepped area or walkway, others will wish to cover a much larger area.
The merchandising stand is available free — when purchasing either 24 kits or 18 kits, a case of coils and a case of adhesive. Stockists have the option of retailing one or both formats from the same merchandising stand.
Mark adds: “We recently showcased the new merchandising stand at the Glee gardening exhibition and also at Timber Expo. The response was extremely positive and demonstrates that a new product is so much more interesting when a merchandising solution is available to maximise its sales potential.”
