This might be inspiring for some of you. My winter deck project. Painting non skid with Kiwigrip.
Happy so far, but concerned as to whether itíll be possible to clean...

Re: Kiwigrip inspiration

I've been on a couple of Kiwi gripped boats. Nice non-skid surface. A little harder to clean. After a few years on one of the boats there is a small patch which has flaked off, probably from poor prep.

Re: Kiwigrip inspiration

We did Kiwigrip on our deck a few years ago to replace a bad Interdeck product. Phoenix's Flight: Interdeck v. KiwiGrip: A Tale of Two Nonskids

Even though all the Kiwigrip colors are pastel-ish, we noticed that even a slight color heated the deck, which then heated the cabin, so we went with white. The white didn't maintain the brilliance as when we first put it down, but we were hoping it would knock down some over time. It does get dirty, but it's easy to clean w/soap on scrub brush.

After ~6 years it's still looking good on the deck. We liked it so much we put it in our nesting dinghy with lots of texture. No slipping in the dink ever again!

Would say the biggest thing is to play with the texture so you are happy with the nonskid, but other than that super easy to put down. Best thing is it also passes our barefoot test. Even in 100F+ temps, you can walk on it barefoot and it's not hot.

Overall a great product.

Re: Kiwigrip inspiration

I did my decks 4 years ago.
I used white foam cabinet rollers. Came out like a flat sand finish. Easy on bare feet great grip.

Re: Kiwigrip inspiration

I did my deck about 5 years ago. As you say very easy to put down and looks very nice and is a good not skid. We used the Kiwi roller which gives a pretty aggressive non skid but it is easy on the feet and knees.
It does wear time in some areas but you can just redo it when needed.


Nice job by the way!
