Continuing to see growth in the anti-slip decking market, Hull based timber company, WJ Group is re-launching the format of its DeckWright Inserts retail kit for merchants, enabling business and domestic customers to retrospectively add a non-slip property to decking that has already been laid.
Previously sold in coils, the new “straight lengths” format will allow for speedier fitting, as one stage of the simple process has been removed. Fully tested and approved, DeckWright Inserts can be cut to length with standard tools and provide a long lasting and professional solution to the all-too-common problem of slippery timber decking.
Packed into a prominent shelf ready kit that contains 25 one metre lengths, plus the specially-formulated adhesive required to fix them, merchants can retail DeckWright Inserts from the shelf or from a floor standing merchandising display that can be positioned in a high footfall location.
Mark Eggleston, WJ Group MD, says: “Many businesses and individuals fit decking without considering the risk of slipping if it is wet. Only when they experience this problem do they understand it. DeckWright Inserts allow for an anti-slip enhancement to be added, after the decking has been laid. Whether on steps, walkways or entire decking areas, there is no need to slip on damp decking any more.
A resin and aggregate T shaped product, DeckWright Inserts could not be simpler to install, especially now that they are supplied in one metre straight lengths. Once the decking has been cleaned, a line of DeckWright Adhesive is placed into the groove and then the Insert is pressed firmly into place. Unlike many other anti-slip solutions, DeckWright does not detract from the natural characteristics of the timber and does not need to be re-applied; do it once and enjoy piece of mind on your decking for many years, whatever the weather”.
Timber companies, merchants and other retailers can add value to their decking range by stocking DeckWright Inserts. If retailing from the merchandising stand, a video plays on a small LCD screen explaining how they are used, whilst customers can pick up a small “how-to” leaflet to explain the ease of fitting.
