Tough GRP strips for instant safety on decking
Wooden decking and ramps can be hazardous in the wet or become slippery with algae in shady or damp conditions. Damp, slippery timber can be made safer instantly using Watco GRP Decking Strips.
Holes are pre drilled in Watco GRP Decking Strips at approximately 300mm intervals. One row of holes is drilled in the 50mm and 90mm wide strips, two rows in the 120mm width. Holes are 50mm in from each end. Screws are supplied for fixing to timber.
Watco Medium Grade Decking Strips are solid in 1200mm and 2400mm lengths and 50mm or 90mm widths. It is designed for areas of decking mainly used by children or vulnerable adults.

If you need to cut the GRP product, a good quality abrasive disc, jigsaw or hacksaw can be used. The GRP material is quite tough to cut by hand, so if power tools are not readily available, please ask about our cut to size service.
If appearance is critical we recommend the application of a small trial area first.
If mechanical fixing is required, the following may be used as a guide:
Lay the items in place to ensure that they fit. Trim using a jigsaw with medium cutting blades (Bosch TI01 AIF or similar are ideal).
These are supplied pre-drilled by us. We use a number 10 drill and a number 8 screw. The larger hole size allows for any slight movement that may arise due to the long, thin shape on timber which can flex or expand. If any additional screw fixings are required, please use a number 10 drill and number 8 screw.
