JOHN BRASH - JB Antislip Plus® Decking Specified On Bulwell Academy

As more than 1,500 students and staff go into their first term at the brand new Bulwell Academy in Nottingham the benefits of the JB Antislip Plus® decking from John Brash, which has been used on external walkways, stairs and footbridges, will quickly become apparent.

The £27m secondary school has been designed to avoid internal corridors to ensure teachers can see pupils at all times, and so its eight blocks are linked to a central courtyard by external walkways. These walkways have all been completed with John Brash’s DeckSure® structural deck boards fitted with two JB Antislip Plus® inserts per board to ensure a slip-resistant surface in all weathers.

The Academy is part of Nottingham City Council’s Building Schools for the Future project and opened its doors in September 2010. Carillion is the main contractor on the project, which is now in its second phase, demolishing the old school and completing new sports facilities.

The local authority had specified an open plan design to meet their requirement that pupils should always be visible to teachers. To achieve this Leeds-based architects Atkins designed the building around an airy central courtyard with separate ‘learning villages’ connected by the walkways.

JB Antislip Plus® inserts were also used on link bridges, which have been installed to overcome the slight gradient of the site, external staircases and decked outdoor teaching areas.

The 1,200 square metres of decking was installed by Lincs Joinery Services of Lincoln and the company’s Contracts Manager, Jonty Hawley, said: “The high quality of John Brash’s DeckSure® boards combined with the JB Antislip Plus® inserts will provide the schools with a robust and slip resistant decking that will last many years.”

JB Antislip Plus® decking was best able to meet the client’s requirements because tests have shown that even when wet, it provides a safe, slip resistant surface.

John Brash’s JB Antislip Plus® has been independently tested by the HSE’s Health and Safety Laboratory, using a Stanley Pendulum Test (as described in BS 7976, parts 1-3, 2002) operated to issue 3, 2005 of the UK Slip Resistance Group (UKSRG) guidelines. JB Antislip Plus® was shown to significantly exceed the minimum requirement for ‘low potential for slip’ in both wet and dry conditions, and for that reason John Brash recommends the use of JB Antislip Plus® for all decks where there is public access, or a high level of pedestrian traffic.

JB Antislip Plus® is created using a unique formula of resin-based aggregate inserts which are injected into John Brash’s DeckSure®, DeckSure® Premier, structural deck boards.

The DeckSure® range used for Bulwell Academy is a structural timber deck board manufactured from kiln dried European Redwood, carefully selected to BS 4978:2007 strength class C16. It is vacuum preservative treated and is unique in carrying a 25 year guarantee against wood rotting fungi and insect attack.

JB Antislip Plus® is offered in a range of alternative colours that can be used to safely highlight changes in gradient or levels where steps or slopes are located.
