Gripsure Aquadeck

Gripsure Aquadeck® is a unique development in non-slip timber decking, allowing rainwater to permeate through the board back into the watercourse below, making Gripsure Aquadeck® SuDS compliant 

Traditional rubber infill decking boards can retain water (up to 0.6 litres per board), which results in algae growth and water freezing in the board, creating a dangerously slippery surface.
