Marine yacht decking has to receive anti slip floor treatment if it is to be made safe for consumer use. It goes without saying that if a flooring surface is frequently wet (as is the case with yacht decking), it has a much higher slip fall risk. Australia has some very strict public liability laws, so it’s definitely cheaper to enlist professional non slip floor treatment services than break the bank defending against lawsuits from those injured on your boats decking.
Marine decking is commonly made from resilient materials like timber or fiberglass resins, so you need a coating that gives with the substrate. Durabak non slip floor coating has been designed specifically for such resilient surfaces by the world leaders in resilient surface treatments Cotel Industries. As the name implies, the coating will maximize traction between visitors’ footwear and the decking surface so that even when the deck is slick with water, the risk of slip fall accidents is kept to a minimum. In fact this product is so tough it’s endorsed by the US Navy and installed on 4 US Nuclear Aircraft Carriers.
Friction Systems Australia believes that non slip floor treatment is a long-term commitment. Thus, for owners of marine decking, we not only provide Durabak application services, but also comprehensive aftercare advice and post-treatment slip testing. This ensures the coating remains in good repair so your yacht deck consistently meets the strict slip resistance standards imposed by Standards Australia.
