The Premier Grit Strip deckboards are equally suited to domestic or commercial sites with walkways, ramps, balconies or steps that are exposed to heavy foot fall. The grit strip boards use our Premier decking boards, making them compatible with our most popular “Premier” deck board range. Both the grit strip and Premier redwood deckboard are ex-38mm x 125mm (approx. 32mm x 122mm finished size) and complement our other redwood balustrading products – spindles, hand/base rails, newel posts etc.
These boards feature two strips of factory heat cured resin with aggregate for maximum grip, set within the grooves of the board it helps retain the aesthetics while remaining slip resistant. The two outermost grooves are left empty this allows for a firm and secure fixing to the joist framework.
Premier grit-strip boards are normally available in 4.8 metre lengths making them ideal for use as 900mm or 1200mm stairs treads, ramps, or use in full 4.8 metre lengths as part of a deck. They can be alternated with our regular ex-38mm Premier deck boards if required. The durability and hardness of the resin grit strip means this part of the board should be cut using an old chop saw blade or angle grinder.
Timber exposed to sunlight, rain and frost will inevitably change appearance very soon after fitting. Whether the decked area is in a domestic or commercial setting we would advise annual cleaning to keep it looking good as well as maintaining its service life.
The deck boards can be cleaned with a combination of a thorough brushing with a stiff brush and a very gentle pressure wash, keeping the nozzle at a distance otherwise you will damage the timber. Annual maintenance will help to prevent algae growth, but areas that don’t receive sufficient sunlight may need two treatments a year. If required we stock Osmo Reviver Gel, this helps remove more severe cases of algae growth. We also carry a range of Osmo, Rustins and Liberon deck Oils, stains and other slip resistant coatings to help maintain your deck.
