tt, I tried running spikes once and found them very uncomfortable and they didn't look good with black tie dress so I gave up on them.

That is something else I will need to address. Perhaps a large bag of salt will need to be stored in the locker.

That locker is going to be full before I even buy it.

[QUOTE=Cocopops;162419]Can anyone recommend a good anti-slip decking treatment paint please?
Or, if the recommendation would be that it doesn't work well a good choice for matting, or basically something to avoid a slippery deck!?
Thanks

Hi,

I have just received this rubber matting which is ideal for the job. Not particularly cheap but definitely worth it and won't get blown away in high winds. See link below.

They pretty much get to the dangerous stage when people don't look after them. I see some which have obviously never been cleaned. They go dark in colour and encourage algae etc. And if you add tree sap to the recipe, you have a problem.
You are correct in assuming a good wash from time to time keeps problems to a minimum. Like most things, maintenance is a good thing.

Hi Tony, I have just looked at your mat. It looks good for the job. We have a door mat at our rental property which is exactly the same but smaller. Unfortunately it was there when we bought the house so I don't know where it was purchased. However it's unlikely it was bought outside the area so I will take a look to see If I can find a stockist.

It might be a little cheaper over here.

Thanks for the replies.
I didn't mention but it's not 'proper' decking rather old scaffold boards so it doesn't have the grooves in, guessing it's going to be double slippery without them! We did manage to do it for free mind you so we're happy to put a bit into the non-slip measures.
I think we'll give it a coat with the anti-slip grit paint all over then use some artificial grass to create some strips in front of the doors.
Come the winter if it's bad still we'll go over it with the rubber matting like Edders.

Aldi has some of those clip together rubber play area things in at the moment but they're quite 'squidgy' (for want of a better word!) so I'm thinking they may rot. Also looked at some rubber backed coir front door type Mat but I think that may go the same way. I seem to constantly be looking at products in a different light these days now I've got the static!

We have used anti slip deck oil on what was old decking we stripped and cleaned up. It's worked pretty well so far - I've been pleasantly surprised. And some AstroTurf which I found dumped ready for the bin has been recycled into door mats!
