anti-slip


I just recently had the need to make a handicap ramp & was able to make it with not much problem but now i need help to put some kind of anti-slip covering on it. The decking is some 1' X 6' deck boards. It in are under some trees which the green mildew quickly. What would be the best way to get it done?

anti-slip


A quick internet search brought up this:

There are a host of other products that are essentially the same thing. If you're worried about it not staying put with the adhesive, then you can nail or staple it down in addition to the adhesive.

The 3M company makes non slip strips for various applications.
Check their website.
The anti slip strips will not preclude cleaning off the algea or moss that will grow in the shade.
