Non-slip Painting

Recommended Posts



I want to change the colour of my tired out non-slip areas of decking. I'm trying to avoid massive preparation requirements. Is there anything I can paint on after just scuffing the existing areas? I'm not sure what is on at the moment. It's sort of rasied a little and might be something stuck on or it might just be painted on with a roller. It has a sort of leathery look. Sorry to by so vague.

I put kiln dried sand into boat paint to make a rougher surface

We always used to do this with old wooden boats. Done properly, I think it's probably one of the most effective surfaces in terms of grip. Can be a bit less than forgiving on flesh though!

So just to be clear, I can just clean up the old non-slip bits with degreasing agent and apply new paint without grinding or sanding or anything like that?

That would depend on what state of the current paint surface. I would at the very least scotch pad the area to key it up.
