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.
