Painting Textures onto Accessible Ramps

625 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  mark sr
Hi all,

I am brand new here and was hoping for some insights on some design challenges I have been having. I'm currently designing some immersive environments that have some accessibility features built into it. I have a wooden ramp that eventually will be painted to make it look like a cobblestone road and will be heavily used. I intend on painting it to look textured with a stencil and then put a clear coat over it. I am trying to look for a non-slip clear coat that may work but I am not seeing any projects that were similar in scope to this. Does anyone know of any clear coated non slip that would work for wood? Would I be better off getting different shades of grey non stick paint?

Have the store add sand to the clear coat, in a mixer.

You decide how much grip you want.

Not playground sand. A paint store will have "grit" that is made for that purpose.

Grit added to paint works well BUT in the high traffic areas it's short lived as it will wear away.
