Create your own non-slip decking boards
Here at Gripsure we are always looking at ways to enhance our client’s projects. We are now able to offer bespoke non-slip inserts in to our boards so that you can create a fun, creative and unique deck for your project. So far our service has been used to create information points, way finders and to put company logos into our client’s decking boards.
The Rising Path at Cambridge University Botanic Garden
The first bespoke project we completed was for The Rising Path project at the Cambridge University Botanic Garden. We worked closely with the project’s architects and design team to create a number of information points explaining the evolution of plants over the centuries. At these points, custom typographic decking boards were supplied to provide a visual contrast to the main non-slip decking as well as display information for visitors. You can find the full case study click here and images of the Accoya® boards below.

We see this service being of particular interest to visitor attractions such as parks and zoos, schools and universities, as well as venues, large sites and business premises.
There is a vast range of possibilities of what we can produce using numbers, letters, shapes and patterns. For example, we are able to manufacture boards to include company logos and mottos as well as way finding systems or information points. You can also create decorative non slip decked areas for building entrances, access ramps, viewing platforms or roof gardens.
We are able to provide sample boards of our custom infill service and work with you to develop prototypes so that you can show decision makers in your project what the boards will look like.
We have a range of timber options available to you including softwood, hardwoods and modified timbers to suit all budgets. We also offer a choice of aggregate finishes and colours so you can be sure to find something that fits with your design as well as providing a slip resistant finish.
Gripsure can produce your boards from supplied artwork sent as an .eps file or high resolution pdf. We can also help consulate on how to make your design work across decking boards for the best results and slip resistance.
We can offer an in-house design service to work with you on designing artwork for your boards if are unable to provide your own based on supplied drawings.
