Slips and trips on decking can result in serious personal injury compensation claims. John Brash offers your clients a means of reducing the likelihood of these occurring, providing them with a long lasting, durable and safe surface.
John Brash has developed JB Antislip Plus timber decking, which offers increased resistance to slipping as well as drawing attention to changes in height – all essential for improved safety.
JBAntislip Plus is available in both smooth and grooved profiles and maintains the beauty of using timber for the deck.
The slip resistant qualities of John Brash’s decking have been independently tested by the Health & Safety Laboratory . This resulted in a Pendulum Test Value (PTV) score of 69 even when wet, which is significantly above the minimum required score of 33. Two JB Antislip Plus inserts per board are usually sufficient.
John Brash’s standard inserts are medium grey in colour. This is complemented with red, yellow and green solid colour inserts that draw attention to certain areas of the deck for both visual, practical and safety reasons. For instance, if different parts of the decking are at varying heights, a coloured anti-slip insert will make the boundary of where one board ends and another starts, easier to see.
The decking is available in treated softwood (Decksure), Thermowood from John Brash, Western Red Cedar and Hardwood, which is available to special order.
All John Brash has full chain of custody certification and all the JB Antislip Plus deckboards are either FSC or PEFC accredited.

Maine Deck’s superb slip resistance, ultra low maintenance and guarantee of rot and splinter proof, makes this product an ideal alternative to traditional timber decking. In addition the inspiring range of colours that this eco friendly product offers, gives an innovative solution provider for commercial or residential applications.
Kendal Heron, managing director explains ”it’s fantastic we can now offer a 2 tone tropical hardwood effect to complement our existing ranges, and one that still addresses all the issues of sustainability as all our products are manufactured from recovered materials”.

S3i – Stainless Steel Solutions – based near Doncaster, provide an ingenious and versatile method of providing cabling in stainless steel with a ball and socket attachment system using UK manufactured 316 marine grade stainless steel. S3i’s system has featured in Channel 4’s Grand Designs, Trentham Gardens in Staffordshire and the RHS Chelsea and Tatton Park Flower Shows.
Cabling is supplied either as swaged assemblies (where the terminals are already crimped onto the stainless steel wire by S3i Ltd), or as swageless compression kits which can be fixed to the wire on site without any difficulty.
Both systems can be either back mounted or surface mounted.
Back mounting sockets can be used with plate or L sections. Surface mounted sockets can be used when screwing directly onto wood or masonry and can also be recessed inside round or square section tube. Surface mounted sockets enable you to anchor directly onto woodwork, masonry or flat faced stainless steel.
All these systems can be ordered online, to a millimetre precision, and then the completed assemblies are despatched to site usually within 24 hours.
