Summer’s Coming…!

What with the last week’s mini heatwave you can’t help but feel that summer is officially coming. It is now the time to start thinking about making improvements to your garden or communal work space, it’s time to get outside, absorb some well earned vitamin D and enjoy the sunshine and the feeling that being with nature brings.
One quick and easy way to get your outdoor environment up to scratch and safe for everyone to use, is to install some anti-slip decking into your outdoor space. Or perhaps if you are already lucky enough to have a deck in your garden, why not think about improving it even further by retro-fitting some anti-slip RetroGrip decking inserts to keep it slip safe all year round?

We offer all our customers, trade or general public, the most competitive prices available on the market. We seek to match or beat any quotes from other decking companies for purchase, installation or consultation. We also offer a wealth of resources, samples, videos and specifications sheets to help you install or plan your deck improvements. Please get in touch if you would like more information or to get a quote.

Did you know we can add anti-slip inserts into YOUR timber?

GripDeck® Decking Inserts Service is a factory applied process in which we bond anti-slip inserts into YOUR timber. Send in your softwood or hardwood timber to our factory and we’ll aim to turn around your order within 5 days.

GripDeck® anti-slip decking grip inserts are highly effective; made from specialist resins and hard-wearing anti-slip aggregates bonded directly into your timber. Once bonded, GripDeck® inserts are a high performing anti-slip finish for your decking that will last for years. Only GripDeck® inserts come with a 5 Year Warranty. We will not be beaten on price or quality.

We offer a range of coloured aggregates for your anti-slip inserts.

We can bond GripDeck® inserts to almost any type of timber decking, retaining a flat profile if required.

Depending on your requirements, we provide a range of aggregate sizing from standard grade through to rural grade

CNC with GripDeck

Not ones to show off on a regular basis we did think it was worth sharing these photos of our army of CNC ’ed trees we created for our stand at UK Construction Week Expo 2017 last October.

Whilst you may not require a wooden tree made to measure for your latest project, perhaps we can help you create something more suitable?

We specialise in designing and manufacturing bespoke, one-off pieces made from plywood, MDF or even plastics; automating those time consuming jobs using our flatbed CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) machine and the latest digital manufacturing technology.

If you have something in mind, our expert design team will take your inital idea, create a CAD drawing and take it right through to finished product! Our flatbed machine is able to handle a wide range of projects, no job too big or small.

GripDeck with Thermory

We at GripDeck® are very excited to announce GripDeck with Thermory, a partnership between us and the leading specialist manufacturer of thermally modified decking.

Our new partnership means that you will now be able to purchase top of the range GripDeck® anti-slip decking inserts within top of the range thermally treated solid timber from Thermory.

Mainly working in ash hardwood, for its superior qualities produced after thermal treatment, Thermory also produce their thermally treated decking in pine.

Thermal modification is a computer controlled process which is carried out in specialised Finnish kilns at high temperatures. Only steam and heat are used with no added chemicals.

So why buy thermally treated timber for your decking?  Thermally treated timber improves stability and durability; reducing the potential of the wood to twist or warp, whilst also helping to eliminate potential mould and the chances of rotting.

And now you can purchase longer lasting timber with GripDeck® anti-slip inserts to make your deck even safer for longer.
