DeckWright Ant-Slip Inserts

Deckwright Anti-Slip Decking Insert Kit – Don’t Slip Up!

DeckWright Anti-Slip Decking Kit

When timber decking is proving to be slippery when wet or dirty, installing DeckWright Anti-Slip Decking Inserts can lessen the risk of injury and provide you reassurance when walking on a wet timber deck. DeckWright inserts can be easily fitted into most timber decking boards, providing you with an attractive, long lasting solution to a slippery problem for both domestic and commercial projects.


How do DeckWright Inserts work? 

DeckWright Inserts encompass a universally shaped plastic T bar that holds a resin and aggregate formulation.When inserted into the grooves of a decking board, the insert will sit proud of the timber and provide  grip – even when wet. To achieve maximum grip, we recommend using two DeckWright Strips per decking board.

Where can DeckWright Inserts be used?DeckWright Anti-Slip Decking Inserts

DeckWright Inserts can be used in various locations including heavy traffic commercial areas and as a garden decking solution. Wherever you have timber decking, DeckWright inserts can increase your safety and transform your standard timber decking into a non-slip deck.

How many inserts will I need?

Use the following method to calculate how many metres of DeckWrigth inserts you require:

  • Determine what area you wish to cover in square metres.
  • Establish how many grooves you want to anti-slip – two per decking board is recommended.
  • Determine how many deck boards cover a metre – for this example we will assume 8.

Square metres x number of boards in a metre x number of grooves to anti-slip = Total linear metres

e.g. 10 square metres x 8 boards in a metre x 2 grooves = 160 linear metres

* DeckWright Anti-Slip Decking Inserts are supplied in one metre lengths.

How to install DeckWright Anti-Slip Decking Inserts

DeckWright Anti-Slip Decking Inserts

  1. Before you begin, ensure the inserts are <18oC and that your decking is clean, dry and free from debris.
  2. Apply 3 mm bead of the specially formulated adhesive to the groove of the decking board that you will be placing the insert.
  3. Trim the insert to the desired length, firmly place into the groove and apply pressure.
  4. For optimum results, allow to dry for a minimum of 3 hours.

What’s included in a DeckWright Anti-Slip Decking Inserts Kit?

  • 25 x 1 metre Granite Grey colour inserts
  • 1 x DeckWright Adhesive

Amvic ICF

Insulating Concrete Formwork System


What is Amvic ICF?

Amvic ICF

Amvic ICF consists of high density polystyrene panels 1200mm long x 400mm high x 65mm wide, spaced apart by high strength polypropylene webs. The forms provide a fully insulated, permanent shuttering system into which concrete is poured. Once cast, the solid concrete core provides the necessary structural integrity of the building, insulation, fire safety, thermal mass and durability for the structure’s lifetime.

The polystyrene panels of each block provides insulation to the structure with U-values ranging between 0.24 W/m2k and 0.13 W/m2k being achieved.

The forms themselves weigh approximately 3.5kg and are simple and easy to build.

Benefits of using Amvic ICF

Amvic ICF can bring many benefits to your project. The combination of the patented, reversible FormLockT, EPS composition, innovative web design and web spacing result in:

  • Using AMVIC ICF requires less support during installation giving straight, flat and plumb walls.
  • Less wastage when compared against other ICF or building systems available.
  • The ability to withstand internal concrete vibration, ensuring a structurally superior wall.

The forms are very user friendly due to its innovative design, helping to increase the speed of construction, reduce labour costs and provides the highest level of performance throughout and after construction. Amvic ICF walls can be finished internally by using gypsum board screwed directly to the integral webs and a wide range of external finishes can be used e.g. stone, timber and brick etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Amvic ICF

Q. How high can you concrete the Amvic system in a single pour?

A. Up to 3m of concrete can be placed in any single concreting day.

Q.Does the concrete core require steel reinforcement?

A. Within the UK, retaining walls and structures taller than 3 storey high will require reinforcement throughout. Low rise structures will require steel reinforcement only over the top of window and door openings.

Q. How does fire affect the system?

A. The polystyrene bead used in the production of the Amvic system is a flame retardant grade. If the forms were exposed to a naked flame the polystyrene will burn however, once the flame is withdrawn or the Amvic burns clear of it, the polystyrene will self-extinguish therefor the system will not contribute to the spread of fire.  Additionally, the solid concrete core cannot burn conveying how safe the use of Amvic systems really are.

Q. How are internal services accommodated?

A. Electrical conduits and water pipes can be recessed into chases cut into the polystyrene at the time of installation. Please note: PVC cables should be kept from direct contact with polystyrene by placing it inside a plastic conduit.

Q. How is a masonry finish achieved?

A. A masonry finish can be achieved by either building a full brick or stone skin around the Amvic shell or by applying brick / stone slips directly to the surface of the Amvic blocks. The bricks/stone wall ties are cast into the Amvic concrete core to support the masonry skin option whereas slips are bonded to the Amvic system using a high adhesive bonding mortar over a supporting expanded metal lathing which is pinned back to the Amvic concrete core.

Q. Can you render onto an Amvic system?

A. Acrylic or polymer modified render systems that have been designed to be applied onto polystyrene are available. This type of system does not require a supporting eml.
