There are a few things which can cause a deck to become a slippery surface. The most common is due to the growth of algae and mould. So before looking at where to buy anti-slip decking strips, and before applying any product, give your decking surface a good clean down.

The advantages of using anti-slip decking strips, particularly the more permanent screwed-down fixtures, are that anti-slip stains and treatments will have to be regularly re-applied if they're to continue being effective.
