FAQ

Is this material slippery when wet?

← All Topics
While all composite material has some slipperiness, especially when wet, the nature to which you may feel it is slippery would vary based on the contact material (i.e. the material on the bottom of your shoe). We would not anticipate an excessive level of slipperiness with this material, and in fact may find some of the slipperiness to be mitigated by the grain pattern. A slip resistance test has been done on the UH02 Voyager series hollow deck boards, as per DIN51130 (see https://www.din.de/en/getting-involved/standards-committees/nmp/standards/wdc-beuth:din21:196898059). The results certified the material as an R10 rating. This rating can be extended to the other deck boards and the deck tiles, given the similar grain material and identical material composition. If you have specific concerns, we encourage you to test a sample. Feel free to reach out to us via the customer inquiry form on our website at https://www.newtechwood.com/contact/ with your name, address, phone number, email, and the product(s) and color(s) for which you would like a sample.
