The History of GripDeck

20 years of Grip Decking manufacturing

Our managing director Mike Sant has been in the anti-slip industry for as long as he can remember. In his younger days Mike worked producing ACME Panels, before branching out to set up his own business.  In 2000 GripDeck was established. 

GripDeck’s roots started as a manufacturer of non-slip flooring panels for the rail industry. During the early days a customer came to us and wanted an anti-slip solution for decking.   They were trying to source a product that was not only safe but also visually pleasing. Our experienced design team under the guidance of Mike came up with the idea of applying lines of non-slip aggregate to the grooves within the decking and so anti-slip decking as we now know it was born. 

In the last 20 years, we have changed, grown and developed.  Not only have we expanded our buildings, our factory and the number of staff, we have expanded our product range. 

20 Years later we are the UK’s leading manufacture of anti-slip decking with an automated production factory.

We are now able offer a variety of softwood anti-slip decking and hardwood anti-slip decking along with composite decking. 

Not only do we produce our own anti-slip decking range but we also supply anti- slip decking to merchants.  We also offer a service whereby we apply anti-slip inserts into other companies decking. 

We additionally manufacture a range of retro fitting/ self -installation anti-slip products. 

Our RetroGrip anti-slip inserts are the perfect solution for decking that is already laid.  Quick and easy to install, they are the perfect solution to resolve any slippery decking situation. Manufactured in 1 metre lengths and in 2 different colour’s. It is an elegant solution that won’t ruin the look of your existing decking.
