good looking anti-slip

Anyone have any ideas for good looking anti-slip? Paint with grit seldom looks good, and it would be great if one could lay down the kind of patterned gelcoat that does look so professional.

Re: good looking anti-slip

We did our decks with Interux Perfection (2-part polyurethane) with Interlux's Intergrip additive. The additive is made of small beads - the anti-slip component. The key to a good result is constant gentle stirring of the mixture to insure that the beads are suspended throughout the paint. The beads can be added to any deck paint but we preferred the looks and hardness of Interlux Perfection.

I don't know if Treadmaster suits your taste or not, but it's worth a look. Albeit, it's a different type of non-skid.

Kiwi Grip was my choice - looks good and there are I think 3 colors for you to choose. Easy to apply and works great.

Re: good looking anti-slip

You can get press molds to create the patterns seen in molded non skid. I have no idea how hard or easy it may be to use these patterns.

I'm thinking of using Kiwi-Grip but have heard it is very difficult to clean.

I'd be interested in your experience: How long have you had it and how do you find it to clean ?

Thanks,
JM.
