JOHN BRASH Decking Brings Safety & Style To City Apartments

John Brash’s JB Antislip Plus® decking has been specified for communal areas around the 108 apartments and townhouses at the prestigious Cube development in Manchester, where it will provide a secure, anti-slip surface all year round.

The decking has been used extensively on walkways, external staircases and a communal social area at the development, which comprises a range of high quality, modern, affordable homes close to city centre amenities. Designed to a high specification and with full height windows offering stunning city views, the homes are being marketed as ‘city chic without the city prices’.

The development has been led by Manchester Ship Canal Developments (MSCD), which is a joint venture partnership between developer Peel Land & Property and Manchester City Council. The John Brash JB Antislip Plus® decking was installed by Russells Construction.

The project required 10,800 linear metres of JB Antislip Plus® which was supplied with two grey anti-slip inserts, injected into John Brash’s treated Softwood deck boards.

The company’s DeckSure® range was used at The Cube. This is a structural timber deck board manufactured from kiln dried European Redwood, carefully selected to BS 4978:2007 strength class C16. It is vacuum preservative treated and is unique in carrying a 25 year guarantee against wood rotting fungi and insect attack.

JB Antislip Plus® is created using a unique formula of resin-based aggregate inserts. A number of inserts per board can be specified, depending on the slip resistance levels required.

John Brash’s JB Antislip Plus® has been independently tested by the HSE’s Health and Safety Laboratory, using a Stanley Pendulum Test (as described in BS 7976, parts 1-3, 2002) operated to issue 3, 2005 of the UK Slip Resistance Group (UKSRG) guidelines. JB Antislip Plus® was shown to significantly exceed the minimum requirement for ‘low potential for slip’ in both wet and dry conditions, and is therefore recommended for all decks where there is public access, or a high level of pedestrian traffic.

Christian Brash of John Brash said: “I am delighted that our JB Antislip Plus® decking has been specified for this prestigious project. The fact that it is specifically designed for areas of high footfall will mean it will continue to look good as well as providing a safe, slip resistant surface.”

JB Antislip Plus® inserts are offered in a range of colours and can be used to safely highlight changes in gradient or levels where steps or slopes are located.

John Brash is committed to environmental best practice. All its timber is either FSC or PEFC certified and supplied with a chain of custody number, verifying that it is always sourced from sustainable, independently certified and well managed forests.
