Anti Slip Decking Paint – Non-slip coatings are acrylic-based liquids that are applied to decks just like a paint or sealer. These coatings cover the surface of the deck with a slight texture that prevents the user from slipping and are available for any type of deck surface, such as wood or concrete. These coatings may be colored or clear. An advantage of these coatings is that they do not require any special skills or materials for application, making them ideal for a do-it-yourself project.
