Anti-Slip Decking Strips put Kirkby Malzeard Primary School Top of Class

At Kirkby Malzeard Church of England Primary School in Yorkshire learning is fun thanks to their colourful outside classroom. Ensuring the new decking area is safe for all children the school, parents and teachers got together to fundraise to add the finishing touches to this appealing space.

Before & after - the School slippery wooden areas made safe with fine grit, Anti Slip Decking Strips.

School Slippery Playground - The Brief

The decking area in the children’s outdoor classroom could become slippery when wet, parents and teachers wanted to create a space where children could access without slipping.

Safe Tread Added Colour, Functionality and Grit!

Safe Tread offered the perfect solution; it is great value for money and comes in a wide range of colourful decking strips with a new fine-grit finish - ideal for school playground settings. The strips were added to the decking and steps to create a safe and fun environment for the children. Safe Tread also offered the perfect finish with matching colour screws.

Safe Tread a Class Act…

Rebecca Wolfe, Assistant Headteacher, Kirkby Malzeard Church of England Primary School, says: "Our outdoor classroom is a fun and vibrant place where the children love to learn, play and have time for contemplation. Thanks to Safe Tread our wooden decking has stopped any concerns of slips, and also adds a further splash of colour."

She continued: "Our caretaker also commented that the Anti-Slip Decking Strips were very easy to install and required minimum maintenance, so was the ideal solution for us!"

Anti-Slip Decking Strips: The ideal solution for slippery decking

Without the use of Safe Tread the project was in jeopardy due to health and safety. Macolme Brig, Caretaker, Kirkby Malzeard explains: "The school had been looking for an anti-slip surface but were concerned about a number of heavy duty gritted surface options. They had almost written off the project until they were recommended Safe Tread’s fine grit Decking Strip option."

"The products, and service offered by Safe Tread were by far the best, in fact top notch! Right from ordering of colour samples to delivery. The samples were ordered and a Health and Safety Officer was consulted on the fine grit suitability – and the Decking Strips passed with flying colours! The Officer was so impressed he commented that he would recommend to other schools."

"The strips were installed and found to be perfect solution for the playground areas, in fact we’re so pleased with them we’ve used them for another area too. An outdoor area was unused but has now become a central feature thanks to the Safe Tread Decking Strips."
