How do I make my decking anti-slip?

Giving your decking an anti-slip surface is a great idea, especially if your have children, pets or anyone who may be unsteady on their feet.  Wooden decking can become slippery when it is wet, or if it hasn’t been cleaned properly.  Making your decking slip resistant is easy.


Which is the best product use?

We think that the best product to use is Osmo Anti-Slip Decking Oil.  It is a clear oil top coat, which maintains the beauty of your wooden decking whilst giving you a slip resistant and safer surface.  When using Osmo Anti-Slip Decking Oil you will get a slip resistant surface along with a water and dirt resistance.  The character of the natural wood remains visible and the surface will not crack, flake or peel.  This particular oil allows the decking to breathe, which helps to reduce the swelling and shrinking of the wood.  It also protects your decking against algae and fungal decay.
