  • Slippery balcony floor surface

    I am considering building a fairly large balcony on the back of one of my properties. I am considering using timber decking as the floor surface but this stuff is lethal when wet - like an icerink!

    Was also considering astro turf on a flat base ?

    Any one got any good ideas of good non slip materials to work with - preferably using marine ply as base ?

    The rubber stuff they put round equipment in children's playgrounds is impossible to slip on.

    Why do you want a balcony anyway? You live in Wales!

      Have you considered non-slip timber decking?

      "Enhanced grip boards are available with inserts of non-slip material for use in areas where improved grip is require eg steps, ramps and key areas of decks and walkways for public access. DeckMark Plus is a quality and performance rating scheme for these type of boards. It identifies enhanced grip boards that have been independently tested for slip resistance to a British Standard like BS 7976. All of the boards supplied by the manufacturers below have a lower potential for slip in both wet and dry tests.

      For specific performance ratings contact the manufacturers."
