Ekodeck Decking boards are supplied with a certified anti-slip rating as per AS4586:2013. Over time, dependent on traffic, environment and other external factors, the surface may wear. It is the responsibility of the owner to periodically test the boards to ensure anti-slip rating requirements are being met.

Static Electricity

All co-extruded composite decking, including Ekodeck Flame Fighter can, under certain conditions, exhibit build-up of static electricity.

The biggest contributing factors of static electricity build-up are low humidity and dry environmental conditions, the type of subframe materials used in construction and the presence of earthing and/or metal balustrading. Whilst installations where static is noticeable are rare, Ekodeck is not in control of these factors and does not warrant against static build-up.

This phenomenon may be reduced by using an anti-static spray (such as ACL Staticide). These products are water based and may require additional applications after rain or other weather conditions. Anti-static mats or insulating touch points such as balustrades or door handles with a sealer may provide a more permanent solution. A clear coat can be applied to insulate touch points – for best results use a UV resistant, outdoor-grade coating. Multiple applications may be required to create an effective insulating barrier.

Generally, the static build-up in the boards tends to reduce over time as the boards wear in.

Ekodeck does not warrant against static build-up in Flame Fighter boards due to influencing factors beyond our control.
