Antislip Plus smooths the way at Rushden Lakes

Antislip Plus Smooth from Marley was supplied for a next generation shopping and leisure park in Northamptonshire.

Rushden Lakes, at Nene Valley in Northamptonshire offers over 400,000 sq.ft of new retail and restaurant accommodation, together with leisure activities which are all set against the backdrop of a lake.

As part of the project, more than 500,000 sq.ft of Antislip Plus Smooth decking was used at the retail park development, creating a linear length of around 40km.

Gary Wilburn, director of design and sustainability at HPW Architecture commented: “Having used Antislip Plus Smooth previously, we were already reassured that the product could meet our bespoke needs but furthermore, meet the wider objective of the development project to ensure we used the highest quality specialised materials throughout.”

Marley Antislip Plus uses a unique formula of resin-based aggregate inserts, which are injected into the deck board grooves. For the smooth boards required by this project, grooves are specially machined into the boards to receive the inserts. They are treated to either Use Class 3 (MicroPro®) or Use Class 4 (Naturewood®) to protect the decking and suit the project requirements.
