WJ Group says it is committed to strengthening the awareness of its anti-slip decking product, DeckWright, by exhibiting at Glee 2016 in September in addition to consumer show Grand Designs Live for five days in October.
DeckWright Anti-Slip has enjoyed growing sales during the last 12 months and some notable listings – both in the supply of anti-slip boards and DeckWright Inserts, which can be retrospectively fitted to already laid decking. Both formats are accredited by the TDCA DeckMark Plus scheme, whilst DeckWright has been fully tested and approved by the Health and Safety laboratory in Buxton, scoring a PTV of 71 which determines a “highly anti-slip” recognition.
Activity at Glee 2016 will see the firm showcase its external timber DeckWright Inserts merchandising stand for the first time, noting that “Launching this stand in early 2016 certainly widened the market for DeckWright Inserts as a display can now sit outside, next to the decking if desired”.
Grand Designs Live – long-established show that will welcome well in excess of 60,000 people through the doors over five days (19-23rd October) – is WJ Group’s first activity at a consumer show and the intention is to develop further product awareness that can be driven to the network of stockists across the UK.
Mark Eggleston, WJ Group MD, commented: “We’ve got a busy few months coming up where DeckWright is concerned and we really hope that this will be of benefit to our current stockists in addition to helping us gain new listings. Decking sales in the UK continue to be strong and there is a huge amount of already laid decking that would be safer with an anti-slip enhancement installed. Slipping on decking is a real risk that can have serious consequences and our British weather continues to be unpredictable, regardless of the season. Our job at WJ Group is to help widen the awareness of this great anti-slip solution that is affordable and so easy to install.”
