slip resistance when this standard is used for the testing and classification of the slip resistance of carpets or carpet-like products in potentially wet locations, the carpet shall be tested using the wet pendulum test method set out in appendix a of as4586, and shall be reported as such.
our plastic lumber is 100% plastic with no wood fillers to rot, peel, weather or blister, and generally contains over 90% recycled hdpe plastic material. 2 color our plastic lumber utilizes ultra-violet uv stabilized colorants added during the manufacturing process to ensure a long lasting, fade resistant product requiring no staining, painting or sealing of any kind .
slip resistance: to date, no in-depth studies have been done to compare the slip resistance or coefficient of friction between wood and plastic lumber. astm test methods exist for various materials but the results can vary greatly, depending on factors such as the type of shoe sole material used in the test e.g., leather vs. rubber and whether the test sample is wet and/or rough.
plastic or plastic composite lumber is a low-maintenance and higher-priced alternative to pressure-treated wood. this deck in highlands, washington, is built with composite planks and railings made from recycled plastic and oak sawdust.
slip resistance tests were performed, and it was found that the plastic lumber is more slippery than wooden lumber, but probably does not represent a safety hazard.
plastic lumber is a fairly new product made from recycled milk bottles and other similar containers and plastics. in addition to decking, it can be used in a wide variety of projects. it has several advantages over traditional solid wood decking, including extended longevity and resistance to rot.

slip resistance tests were performed, and it was found that the plastic lumber is more slippery than wooden lumber, but probably does not represent a safety hazard. the conclusion was that the plastic lumber is a good structural material, but it is not appropriate to simply substitute plastic lumber for wooden lumber pieces of the same dimension in structural applications.
polyforce structural recycled plastic lumber is designed to be customized to meet individual strength and load bearing requirements for a variety of product and component needs. based upon your specific structural requirement, polyforce can be formulated precisely with various loading levels of reinforcing fibers and other proprietary ingredients to meet your light to medium duty commercial or industrial applications.
they chose advantage seven trust because of its natural slip resistance. they also chose our wood because we had the capability to custom mill each board into an anti-slip profile for even greater slip resistance. this makes the ramp ideal for both safety and water activities.
recycled plastic lumber planks as an alternative to wood. our range of recycled plastic lumber is rot proof, impact resistant, algae and moss resistant as the profiles have a skin that paint cannot penetrate while graffiti can simply be wiped clean.
slip resistance of recycled plastic decking. green algae accumulates on the surface of all decking after a few years, but cannot bed into the grain of recycled plastic as it is not porous. kedel's plastic decking can be jet sprayed or even removed with a mop or stiff brush and soapy water. algae cannot find a hold on 100% recycled plastic.
with increasing global concerns on environmental issues, chromated copper arsenate cca treated wood decking products have been step by step replaced by wood plastic composite wpc lumber and heat-treated lumber. the slip resistance of decking is no doubt a critical safety index.
plastic decking is just plastic, although it can have any number of additives for resistance to sun damage, scratching, and weather. plastic lumber has other applications besides decking, include trim boards, railings, outdoor furniture, siding, and fences. one thing you can't use it for is structural applications,
1.1.1 the plastic component of wood-plastic composites and plastic lumber covered by this specification shall consist primarily of thermoplastics. 1.2 deck boards, stair treads, guards, and handrails covered by this specification are permitted to be of any code compliant shape and thickness solid or non-solid .
our range of recycled plastic lumber is rot proof, impact resistant, algae and moss resistant as the profiles have a skin that paint cannot penetrate while graffiti can simply be wiped clean.
uv-resistance increased by specially formulated additives. wood grain embossed finish on surface for aesthetics and slip-resistance. anti-stat additives to mitigate static discharge when seasonal humidity drops. compatible with common woodworking tools, easy to cut, drill and rout. easy to face screw requires no pre-drilling for fasteners.
trimax structural plastic lumber is a cost effective solution for many of your marine applications. trimax textures now you can enhance any project with the added beauty and slip-resistance of trimax textures.
slip resistance of recycled plastic decking green algae accumulates on the surface of all decking after a few years, but cannot bed into the grain of recycled plastic as it is not porous. kedel's plastic decking can be jet sprayed or even removed with a mop or stiff brush and soapy water.
abstract. this specification covers polyolefin-based plastic lumber products for use as exterior residential decking boards. plastic lumber products are currently made predominantly with recycled polyolefin plastics in particular high-density polyethylene where the products are more or less non-homogenous in the cross-section.
our recycled plastic lumber can withstand extreme environments because it doesnt rot, splinter or degrade and structural integrity is built into the product. plastic lumber does not leach chemicals and is not chemically-treated so there are no harmful effects on the environment.
even in wet conditions our plastic dock lumber is slip-resistant and protected against corrosion from sand and heavy use. the uv-protection package in our color additives resists fading caused by direct sunlight. bear board is the superior choice for any marine application, including docks, piers, swim platforms, boardwalks, ladders, bumpers and other dock accessories. outfit your entire marina using bear board plastic dock lumber.
