Specifying non slip decking for schools nurseries and playgrounds

Alternate Text

When specifying decking for schools, nurseries and playgrounds consideration must be given to aesthetics, maintenance and safety.  By choosing the right products which are inclusive and safe ensures that everyone can make use of the outdoor decked areas.
Many schools are looking to maximise and utilise the space they have available and choosing timber decking to create outdoor teaching and play areas for children to enjoy.
Initially developed to meet the inclusivity requirements of the London 2012 Olympics; Marley’s CitiDeck is an ideal choice for this type of project and is often specified for it’s antislip profile, the beautiful aesthetics of the timber itself as well as the longevity of the product.

Marley CitiDeck is widely renowned for its smooth inclusive profile and two anti-slip inserts, which are a slightly less abrasive aggregate, whilst still exceeding the HSE’s minimum requirement, providing a safe, non-slip surface. Treated to achieve a 30 year service life, CitiDeck’s above-average lifespan is an important benefit in driving down the costs of associated maintenance and refurbishment – thanks to the smooth surface being much easier to maintain and keep clean.
