CitiDeck®, a smooth, profiled non-slip timber decking board, was used on the roof terrace and ground-level terraced areas of the postgraduate lounge and balconies from the student flats at Oxford Brookes University.
CitiDeck® combines all the safety benefits of AntiSlip Plus® inserts with the user-friendly nature of smooth deck boards, which are much easier to walk on in heeled shoes in urban environments compared to castellated decking. The grit is also slightly less abrasive than AntiSlip Plus®, providing a smoother surface for wheelchair users.
In addition to providing improved walking comfort for users with healed shoes, CitiDeck® timber decking is frequently specified for outdoor areas where food is served. Its smooth surface prevents food, dirt, or litter becoming trapped, making it much easier to clean for maintenance teams.
The postgraduate social provision lounge at Oxford Brookes University, which is part of the new eco-friendly £17million ‘village’ development, forms part of the Marston Road Phase 3 project. The building provides an additional 358 residential units for postgraduates close to existing halls of residence.
CitiDeck® timber decking was installed for the roof terrace, ground-level terraced areas of the postgraduate lounge and balconies from the student flats. Initially developed for the demands of a high-profile sporting event, the product has grown in popularity due to its smooth user friendly non-slip surface.
