Get the deck safe for poolside entertaining

It’s officially swimming season and home owners are busy tackling DIY projects that will make the pool area safer – from fixing up gate latches and signage to ensuring the surrounding deck is safe for family and friends. Timber surfaces can become very slippery when wet (whether that’s from the pool, rainwater or garden hose) so if you’re worried about this, you can apply an anti-slip timber coating before hosting any pool parties or poolside barbecues.

Sikkens Cetol® Deck Slip Resistant is ideal for the job. Not only is Sikkens a premium brand, highly regarded by trade professionals and consumers alike, but professional slip resistant testing has proven this product offers mid-to-high slip resistance on surfaces that are prone to water exposure or wet weather.

When applied as two finishing coats over Sikkens Cetol® HLSe, the coating creates a textured, high-traction satin finish that provides a more stable surface for walking upon. It is also a cost effective option for home owners, as it can be used across multiple surfaces, protecting other outdoor areas such as timber ramps, stairs and walkways.

An oil-based microporous formulation, Sikkens Cetol® Deck Slip Resistant allows timber to breathe while repelling unwanted moisture. It also delivers long lasting protection from UV and weather damage and is very easy to apply. Most importantly though, this premium coating provides peace of mind all summer long; so home owners can enjoy entertaining beside the pool without any falls.
