      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

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.

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.
