Is Composite Decking Slippery When Wet?

Most brands of composite decking can become slippery when wet. However, at Ecoscape, our composite decking boasts advanced surface technology that helps prevent slippage without the need for paint or grip strips.

Our Clarity composite decking range has a rating of 99 in dry conditions and a rating of 53 in wet conditions on the Pendulum Slip Test EN15534.  A PTV value of 36 is required to be classified as low slip when tested in wet and dry conditions, meaning our Ecoscape decking is ideal for outdoor application and can be safe to use even when wet.
