  • Decking Strips

  • DecPlate Sheet

DecPlate strips have been developed due to increasing demand for a retro fitted anti-slip product to solve the problem of worn, wet or algae covered wooden decking boards.

These strips are available in a 2 or 3mm option, in any colour and with a fine grit profile.

Supplied in various widths or lengths DecPlate is easily fitted using a grab adhesive or screws.

Anti-Slip Decking

GRP Decking Strips provide a safe, robust solution to minimising the potential for slips on areas covered with moss or algae and on low traction surfaces.

Decking strips are a bespoke product made to required sizes and to any BS or RAL colour.  Strips are easily fitted using a simple “glue and screw” method and can be fixed to a wide range of substrates including concrete, timber, asphalt etc.

Strips have excellent U.V. resistance so are not prone to fading after prolonged exposure to sunlight.  Strips are easily cleaned using a stiff bristle brush, or for more stubborn markings, can be pressure washed on a low setting.

After researching many forms of grit, Smyth Composites elected to use Fused Alumina due to its superior qualities and suitability for the anti-slip applications. Other types such as Bauxite or Quartz are available by special order. The Fused Alumina is available in a variety of grades:

Ultra-Fine (Barefoot), Fine, Medium, Coarse, Ultra-Coarse

Panel Size and Thickness

Panels can be manufactured to any length but with a width restriction of 1500mm. Standard product range can be manufactured to literally any thickness from 2mm upward. As this is a handmade product, containing various raw materials, tolerances apply to both size and thickness which may vary depending on the specifications ordered.  Occasionally we can accommodate “oversized specials” – please contact us for details.

Fire Resistance

Products can be manufactured to either:

  • General Purpose (GP grade)
  • BS 476 Part 7 Class 1 (surface spread of flame)
  • BS 476 Part 7 Class 2 (surface spread of flame)
  • Phenolic

Fact:

Unlike other “Plastic” glazing products GRP will not drip, melt or soften in the event of fire.  For an explanation of the different ratings click here

 

Thermal Conductivity:   0.2w/mK

Tensile Strength:            123MPa

Tensile Modulus:            7.1GPa

GRP is 7 times stronger than mild steel
on a weight for weight basis

Flexural Strength:    193 MPa

As standard, we used chopped-strand fiberglass… Flexural Strength can be enhanced by the addition of woven reinforcement if required.

Colour Range

Black, Grey (RAL 7001) and Yellow (08 E 51) colour as a standard.  However, panels can be manufactured to any non-metallic coded colour from the following ranges:

A Colour Matching Service is also available.
