Have you thought about replacing your existing Timber Decking with Composite Decking? DeckSafe, leading suppliers in anti-slip products, explain the benefits that Composite Decking can offer.


Spring seems to officially – finally! - be upon us in the UK! So it’s the perfect time to start thinking about your outside spaces, whether this be your own back garden, an office outside space, or even a restaurant or beer garden.
 
Today we’re weighing up the benefits of GRP Decking vs. traditional Timber Decking.
 
  • Durability
Composite Decking is an incredible durable product, benefiting from it’s composite nature it provides the hard-wearing nature of plastic and glass, whilst also being mould and algae resistant.
 
  • Low Maintenance
If you have timber decking, you’ll be all too familiar with the upkeep it requires! At least once a year, you’ll need to jet wash the timber decking to ensure any slime or mould is removed, making the surface slip-free once more. However, due to it’s resistant nature, Composite Decking requires very little to no maintenance!
 
  • Anti-Slip
Our Composite Decking is a safe alternative to timber decking, as it provides an anti-slip finish underfoot – meaning no more nasty slips if you’re unlucky enough to be caught in a Spring shower!
 
  • Cost-Effective
Over time, Composite Decking works out as a much more cost-effective option in direct comparison to Timber Decking. Taking into account the upkeep of timber decking, including staining the wood, and regularly stripping or jet-washing the surface, Composite Decking comes with very little upkeep costs.
