Treadmaster Original is the world leader in anti-slip decking, combining exceptional slip resistance with durability and comfort in wet and dry conditions. It provides a high degree of insulation and reduces reflective glare from deck surfaces.
There are distinct safety advantages in the event of fire, the material being self-extinguishing and meeting the requirements of BS476 class 2 for surface spread of flame.
Having a light sheet weight (approx. 2.0 - 2.5 kg/m2) Treadmaster Original does not affect the performance or stability of the craft.
These qualities are achieved in a process involving the careful selection and blending of a unique combination of polymers and natural cellular materials, and avoids the harsh abrasive surface associated with non-slip deck paints and tapes.
Treadmaster Original is easily bonded to fiberglass, wood and metal surfaces using either Treadmaster Marine Contact Adhesive, or for maximum durability, particularly in warm climates, the two-part Treadmaster Marine Epoxy Adhesive.
Sheets are simply and quickly cut to size with scissors or a craft knife. Rounded corners can be finished with abrasive paper.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Treadmaster Original is unaffected by exposure to sea water. Its specially designed nitrile rubber/PVC formulation resists the chemical effects of oil, fuel and other commonly used substances, however any spillages should be cleaned up promptly to avoid surface staining.
Cleaning of spillages should be carried out using a cloth or soft brush and warm water containing a mild detergent. The surface is rubbed very gently to remove the spillage, then rinsed with plain water.
Cleaning fluids containing bleach, and abrasive cleaners, must never be used.
Being a substantially natural product, some colors may show a degree of fading after a period of exposure to the elements. If required, the color can be readily restored using the new brush-applied 'Treadcote', specially developed to refurbish old and faded or stained Treadmaster Original.
