Non-Structural Formply Grip Deck (Non-Slip)

Grip Deck is a high performance, non-structural grade plywood constructed from selected tropical hardwood veneers and manufactured using advanced veneering technology. A phenolic film is laminated onto both the external faces and the edges of the sheets coated with a water resistant sealant. This produces a sturdy and durable plywood product that is highly resistant to load impact, abrasion and water ingress. Grip Deck may be of standard or multi-ply construction.

The inherent resistance characteristics of Grip Deck and the embossed “Anti-Slip” high density overlay film face on one side (the other face having a high density smooth overlay) which makes it an ideal product for use in scaffolding, marina decks, and other applications.
