The colour achieved after application may differ from the colour shown on our website. We have made every effort to display the colours of the products as accurately as electronic media will allow. In addition to the influence of different displays on colour values, please note that different coloured decking will also influence the result of your Firmtread Deck Coat application. Our product images show an example of untreated and treated wood after application of the relevant colours.

    Technical Specification


    If the colour or finish is critical, we would recommend carrying out a test area to make sure you are happy with the end result.

    Use where:


    Use on:

    Stained or unstained decking and other wood surfaces.  Firmtread Anti Slip Deck Coating is designed to bring out the natural grain of the wood.  If your wood has been stained or painted, the product may not entirely block out the previous colour since it’s partially translucent to reflect the surface of the timber.  Multiple coats will help, but it is advisable to carry out a test area first to make sure you are happy with the finish.

    Ask a Question
    • A: Hello, we are expecting our stock to be replenished around the 22nd. This is a very popular product and we have had an influx of orders and are doing our best to meet demand. We are just sorry that customers have had to wait longer than usual.

    • A: If the previous coating is able to dry out completely and can be left for seven days, then our coating can be applied over the top of it. However we would recommend sanding the original coating back slightly to achieve a ‘key’ to allow our coating ot stick to it. This may cause problems with the finish you have currently.

    • A: Hi, this can be applied over a previously sealed surface, once completely dry (allow a minimum of 7 days between application).

      However, if the under stain has been applied within the last 12 months, I would suggest lightly sanding back the very top. Not to remove it but to create a key/texture for our coating to bond to.

    • A: Hi - some of our products are going out of stock more quickly than usual but we’re doing our best to get you what you need. We’ve stepped up our manufacturing and our most popular products are always top of our “make it” list.

      We’re currently working on a feature where you can see availability on our website and if the product you’re after is out of stock, just give us your email in the “Let me know when it’s back in stock” box and we’ll send you an email as soon as it’s back on the shelves and ready to despatch. Please keep an eye out, the feature will be available soon.

    • A: Hi, Silver Birch is light grey and it is a coloured oil which stains and tints the timber.

    • A: Hi, we should have it back in around the 5th of May so do keep an eye out on our website.

    • A: Hi, please look at our website for the complete colour range.  Unfortunately due to unprecedented demand we are out of stock of the colours (except clear) until around the 5th of May.  Keep an eye on our website!  Firmtread Anti Slip Deck Coating is a stain not a paint.  It is designed to enhance the natural grain of the timber and tint it, rather than giving a block solid colour.  Hope this helps.

    • A: This product is a solvent based alkyd and will seal the surface and is not classed as breathable.

    • A: This product is usually applied to a timber surface and this can be quite porous. I would suggest the surface be touch dry for a minimum period of around 24 hours before you consider applying the coating, otherwise any residual moisture in the surface could rise and stop the coating from bonding correctly.

    • A: Hi John,

      Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately we would not recommend using a varnish over our coating. A varnish requires a level of porosity so it can soak in and bind to the surface, in fact it is deigned to mostly penetrate the surface and seal the top of whatever it is applied to. If the surface is coated with our Firmtread Anti Slip Deck Coating it would not allow the varnish to penetrate the surface below.

      I am sorry. Do let us know if we can help further.

      Kind Regards,


    • A: Hi, unfortunately due to the aggregate additive used to create the anti-slip surface I am afraid it would not be suitable to be sprayed.

    • A: Yes, you can paint over old paint – it would need to be clean and dry and well bonded – so worth going over with a wire brush and cleaning with Deck Clean, and allowing to dry before painting over.
