Quality Timber Decking Ltd

Gripsure were chosen by Quality Timber Decking (QTDLtd) to infill their deckboards for a large commercial project they were designing and building. The application was an Elevated Glulam structure Boardwalk and Podium at Kennet Island in Reading. The Boardwalk runs along the border of the ecological area of the large residential site. The decking boards QTD used were Thermowood Ash Hardwood from their partners Novawood. The boards have a Micro groove profile that doesn’t hold dirt and water. Two of the grooves were modified by Gripsure to take the resin aggregate infills to deliver a high slip resistance. Due to the low 7% moisture content and excellent durability and stability the Ash provides excellent adhesion properties for the resin. QTD said they chose to use Gripsure because they applied the same attention to detail and were able to meet their tight schedule. The result was a highly satisfied Commercial Client.
