NEEDED: "No Slip" for treated wood

Recommended Posts

BillP

When treated wood gets wet it turns into green ice. I have not been able to find a product that will make it slip resistant. The old sand in paint won't work because it just sands itself off. I did have some luck with a two part epoxy paint and sand. Something that could be applied with a brush or roller would be good or a mesh of some kind that could be stapled down. With all the decks and ramps and docks, you would think someone would have come up with a solution.

I would think some of the paint on bedliner that has a rough surface would work.

I've never tried this on treated wood before, but have you thought of the non-slip shower liners?

I know places like 3M make some for industrial uses (sticky on one side and almost like a sandpaper on the other).

Just a thought.

If you need any of these let me know....

I just painted the basement steps at a rental unit w/ Kilz slip resistance. I chose a grey color and it is pretty rough. Worked very well on that wood and would put it on again. On wood that will get wet alot, I am sure you'll be fine with 2 maybe 3 coats. Hope that helped a little.

Herculiner is a bedliner kit that you can purchase at such places as Menards and Fleet Farm. I have used it for a number of different applications. I personally haven't used it on wood, but I know that you can. I've been very pleased with it.

I picked up some of the 3M brand "no slip" applications for my boat trailer and they work well. The packages I picked up (it was the 2" x9" design)were actually designed and marketed for steps in/out of hot tubs. Instead of being a sandpaper or hard texture, it is more of a rubber grip texture. (Does not hurt or tear up the bare feet)

They'd be a good choice for a dock...especially with the barefeet.

The stick on applications have a sort of contact cement as a glue that works well on non-porous surfaces but not worth a darn on something that the wet can soak up from below. First the edges come loose then they just come off. Perhaps if they could be applied with a waterproof wood glue they might work. I am replacing some of the boards in the most critical area with plastic deck boards with the grooved side up. I will let you know how it works. I also want to try that truck bed liner idea.

menards sells strips of metal mesh with diamond shapes 8 foot by 28 inch for $ 8 I found it in the building materials section and I think it is for under mortor or stuco. You can nail it down to the wood and is easy to cut

Put down a heavy coat of deck enamel. Coat wet paint with a heavy coat of dry,washed sand. After paint dries sweep off excess sand and recoat with deck enamel.

For heavy traffic areas put on a secont coat of enamel/sand/enamel. We use this to create non slip decks in the navy.

I used this on a plank walk way on my boat trailer and other projects with good success.

      Stopped by the lake on Friday and asked a gentleman that was out fishing.  He said 2.5" of ice.

      Figured I would start a fishing report to keep it separate from someone trying to get ice thicknesses.  Fished three different lakes this weekend.  First lake we got to on Saturday had a side by side on it so we felt safe walking.  Hole at access had 7" and we stopped in a few holes along the way fishing and we found an average of 8".  This lake was up on the WE Reservation, long skinny and deep.  Fishing was hit and miss pike were chasing around the gills.  Caught a few big bass which was fun on the UL's and caught a few small gills.  Found a few keeper crappies and kept enough for a meal.  Average was around 11" for crappies and 7" for gills biggest being a 13" crappie.  Second lake is a very known walleye lake around DL.  we had 8" out there also.  Made the hike out to a shoreline break/point and set up with tip ups and jigging spoons.  I suck at walleye fishing and struck out.  Buddies that were 10-15' on either side of me landed 2 EACH and the one tip up 30 feet away also landed one.  Perch were THICK!  I only caught 4-6" perch. Sunday my fishing partner over slept so I went chasing bluegills and crappies on a small lake.  Drilled holes from 42' to 14'.  Fishing was SLOW until the sun came out and then the sunnies were showing up in 38' suspended and aggressive.  Hole hopped because they were all 4-6" but that's all i could find out deep.  As dark came closer my friends started appearing and we could follow the fish up shallower.  Ended up with a few meals for a buddy and his daughter who came out.  A lot of weeding through small ones for keepers.  Very spooky fish.  Aggressive jigging to attract and then they pretty much didn't want it moved.  Wax worms were key last night. Good luck fishing.

      Yikes!  I haven't fished OT County yet but been on four different lakes in Becker.  Last weekend bigger shallower lake was at 7".  This weekend skinny long deep lake was at 8" and it had a side by side on the lake. Large body of water that when it warmed up reopened had 8".  Went to my honey hole and had 10.25-10.5" on it.  Dang near drove out but figured I'd wait so I drilled about 150 holes yesterday and didn't find any thin ice spots.  My shoulder hurts from drilling holes this weekend and carrying around my big 10" auger lol.   Becker County report.  Fish were SPOOKY!!!  Tried a few lakes for panfish and didn't really get into them but they were spooky.  They prefered smaller jigs tipped with wax worms, tried soft plastics but they wanted real things this weekend was my finding.  Fished a lake Saturday night right before dark had tip ups out and jigging with spoons.  One eye came on a tip up other 4 came on spoons.  Had guys 15 feet from me on both sides both catch 2 and the tip up was another 30 feet the other way and I didn't get a bite or a mark!!!!  That's my luck though.  People catching walleyes what I'm hearing are downsized baits on dead sticks.  Buddy got a 6.5 pounder C&R on a crappie/fathead fishing for perch mid day.  I don't know if weather has them in a funk or what.  Panfish are spooky and smaller jigs worked better 4 mm and 3 mm had better results then 5 mm.  5 mm I was finding was spooking fish when they would get near.  I drilled holes from 42' to 14' and had best luck when sun came out in 38 feet but I could follow the schools shallower as the sun set ultimately ended up in 19-21' for crappies and gills.
