The problem

Decks are a popular, attractive addition to many homes and gardens in NZ and provide an extra space for outdoor entertaining.

Often, decking can become slippery when wet and slip injuries are a common occurrence. In NZ the building code NZS3604 calls for a slip resistant access route, many different options to provide slip-resistance have been unsuccessfully trialed or only provide temporary compliance before they wear out or fall off.

The solution

When using KeyDeck, Kwila or Vitex for your new deck build, GripLine™ seamlessly matches the rest of your deck & can be used in the critical “access route” pathways to the front door as well as steps and ramps – wherever a non-slip surface is desirable or required to meeting building code.

Certified Slip Resistance

GRIPLINE™ has been independently tested and verified by WSP New Zealand Limited and has been tested in accordance with AS 4586:2013 Slip Resistance Classification of new pedestrian surface materials. Appendix A Wet Pendulum Test Method (A6 for laboratory testing)

GripLine™ is a sturdy 10-12mm wide aluminium-oxide coated insert manufactured in a ‘T’ profile for rigidity and strength. The grip strip inserts are rebated into and chemically bonded to the decking timber. GripLine™ provides certified slip resistance no matter the direction of foot traffic!

REBATED INTO THE TIMBER

Your decking comes with two GripLine™ inserts pre-installed into the timber. The strips are positioned optimally to allow for your screw fixing in the correct position without penetrating the strip insert. Unlike some ‘stick-on’ grip products our strong, robust and rigid grip inserts are rebated into the timber ensuring long-lasting durability and, of course, safety. Available in ‘Granite’ or ‘Luminous’ options.
