Slip resistance coating for outdoor safety

21 September 2018

 Falls are the most common cause of injuries for children[1], and a major health concern in general for all ages[2].

With this in mind, it’s important to make homes as safe as possible when undertaking renovation projects during spring. This includes the coatings that are used to refresh outdoor timber decking and walkways, which can become slippery when exposed to rainwater or if surrounding a pool or spa.

DIYers and home renovators can be sure of a superior quality and practical finish to outdoor timber surfaces with Sikkens Cetol® Deck Slip Resistant. A highly water repellent coating, slip resistant testing[3] has proven it offers mid to high slip resistance on surfaces that are prone to water exposure or wet weather.


Applied as two finishing coats over Sikkens Cetol® HLSe, the coating creates a textured, high traction satin finish on exterior timber decks, ramps, stairs and walkways. It is also a cost effective option as it can be used across multiple surfaces, protecting other outdoor timber areas.

An oil-based microporous formulation, Cetol® Deck Slip Resistant will allow timber to breathe while repelling unwanted moisture, as well as delivering long lasting UV and weather resistance. Easy to apply and, most importantly, ideal for keeping friends and family safe, Deck Slip Resistant provides peace of mind all year round.

Sikkens Cetol Deck Slip Resistant RRP $266 for 5 litres
