Cuprinol Anti-Slip Decking Stain is suitable for all softwood and hardwood decking. This anti slip decking treatment is especially suitable for decking steps and decked areas outside pubs, restaurants and other commercial areas

Ensure decked areas are swept with a stiff brush or broom to remove all surface dirt, debris and other surface contaminates.

  1. All traces of mould, mildew, fungi and moss should be manually removed from the decking by scraping off, jet washing or sweeping with a stiff broom
  2. Affected areas should be treated with a designated decking cleaner, such as Cuprinol Decking Cleaner
  3. Once cleaned, we recommend the use of a suitable wood preservative that does not contain wax or oil, such as Cuprinol Wood Preserver Clear (BP)
  4. Decking that has been previously coated with paint or other surface coating such as a decking stain must be stripped back to bare wood with Cuprinol Stain Stripper
  5. If decking is looking worn or has greyed from sun damage and the effects of weathering, Cuprinol Greyaway Restorer can be used to restore decking before applying Cuprinol Anti-Slip Decking Stain
  6. Any holes, gaps or splits in the surface of the decking can be filled with Cuprinol All Purpose Wood Filler or Cuprinol Ultra Tough Wood Filler

Always do a small test area before beginning any project to asses product adhesion and colour. Follow the manufacturers instructions on the tin at all times.

Do not apply in temperatures below 5℃, in damp conditions or if rain is likely before the product has dried. If using more than one tin of anti-slip paint for decking, it's advisable to mix them together in a larger container or finish in a corner before starting a new tin.

Stir the contents of the tin thoroughly before and periodically during use to ensure a consistent finish.

  1. Apply 2-3 coats of decking stain evenly along the grain, avoiding overlaps, using a Cuprinol Woodcare Brush or microfibre roller
  2. When applying subsequent coats, allow each coat to dry fully before recoating
  3. On previously stained decking, touch up bare areas and allow to dry before finishing with further coats

Please Note: Final colour will depend upon wood type, previous treatment and the number of coats applied. Avoid heavy wear and tear for a few days after application.


Clean the treated decking with a suitable decking cleaner from time to time to avoid any reduction in performance.


To maintain the surface finish and its anti-slip properties, re-apply a fresh coat of Cuprinol Anti-Slip Decking Stain when the surface starts to show signs of wear, following the Preparation and Application instructions above.

I love this stain by Sheree Whittaker

Love this stain, it really is anti slip, I have painted the handrails and spindles as well as the deck, it just has a fine gritty fell to it but no longer slippy underfoot

Good paint by Lynne Ramsay

I bought this decking paint as i have used the black colour on a previous project and liked the product a lot, i used 'City Stone' for a new piece of decking as the colour was different from most decking paints and it looks really good.

Good colour, great price by Brownstone

The colour is a nice warm brown, it covered well though I'd advise getting more than the suggested amount on the tin. We also found that it covered well when applied to our decking with a soft sweeping brush.

Excellent I would recommend this product by Mr King

Previously stained decking was pressure washed removing 95% ofd the old stain. Two coats of natural oak cuprinol non slip stain applied by roller which required considerable arm pressure to go into the grooves resulted in a very satisfactory decking recovery. I had large area to cover and found it economical in use.

This decking stain did exactly as it said on the tin . It has rained heavy few times and decking is not at all slippery which is great as for past three years it's been like an ice rink
