How safe is your existing decking when wet?
Many companies have installed decking areas and walkways for their staff and customers to enjoy. Decking is attractive and environmentally friendly BUT it can become treacherous over the autumn and winter months. Slippery decking is a common problem once it becomes wet or covered in frost – how safe is your decking?
Recent figures from The National Accident Help Line show that claims made by people who believe that they should be compensated for a slip and fall, can be extremely high. As a result of a slip and depending on the severity of the slip, the following is a range of pay-outs a claimant could expect.
Serious foot injuries £14,500 – £22,650
Hip or pelvis injury £2,175 – £76,350
Severe knee injuries £15,500 – £56,000
Wrist injury with on-going problems £7,375 – £14,250
Ouch !! … Wet decking can lead to slips and falls
We think it is best to protect yourself from such claims by looking at ways to anti slip your decking. Traditionally anti slip solutions for existing decking, have been too expensive or just plain ugly. Grit, chicken wire, warning signs or closing off decking areas never looks good.
