The eco-friendly wood and finishes expert Osmo UK, has introduced a new slip resistant finish for wooden decking. The product has been named Osmo Anti-Slip Decking Oil
to emphasize that it does exactly what it says on the tin. It has been designed to not only protect the decking but also to offer a safer decking all year round. Protection of the surface includes prevention of mould, algae and fungal attack. The Anti-Slip Decking Oil is an oil based finish which provides a durable finish which also provides a safer environment through a reduced risk of slipping. It is a clear, satin finish which has provides a low level of UV protection which helps to protect against and slow down the natural greying process. Like all Osmo natural oil finishes the decking-oil penetrates deeply into the pores and fibres of the wood, providing a beautiful finish and a long lasting level of protection from within the timber itself. It offers protection against the growth of slimy wood moulds and algae, and consequently helps the decking to provide a natural, non-slip surface. High quality wooden decking manufactured by Osmo is also available pre-finished with the chosen wood oil and this simply requires a single top coat of Anti-Slip Decking Oil upon installation. For existing wooden decking which already has suffered with green mould growth, then wooden deck should be cleaned with Osmo Gard Clean before applying the exterior wood oil and the anti-slip decking oil top coat.
