50275358857_2304426e70_oSet amongst the 2,400 acre mixed broadleaf and evergreen Delamere forest, Forest Holidays 66 woodland holiday cabins include Marley AntiSlip Plus® timber decking and each cabin comes with its own outdoor decking area and hot tub accessed by walkways and bridges, to offer guests a tranquil rural escape.

In keeping with the woodland surroundings, Forest Holidays were looking to use natural timber products, choosing to specify a treated anti-slip timber decking that would reinforce the organic sense of place between the forest, timber cabins and walkways and keep guests safe.

Mark Sheppard, Head of Procurement at Forest Holidays said, “We took the decision to use anti-slip decking back in 2021 after running a series of small trials across our sites. With hot tubs included in our decks, as well as decking used in our raised walkways, bridges and central areas, we couldn’t afford not to. Now we start with the ultimate spec, so we can ensure the safety of our guests whilst reducing the risks associated with wet floors.”

With cabins and walkways sited beneath the forest canopy, the site presents a unique set of environmental conditions, which can cause the build-up of mosses and algae from overhanging branches and dampness.

AntiSlip Plus® has been treated to Use Class 3, giving suitable protection for use above ground in areas exposed to frequent wetting and to prevent fungal decay.

Durability and maintenance

Handmade in the UK, Marley check the quality at every stage of the process, and for extra reassurance, AntiSlip Plus® comes complete with DeckMark® and DeckMark® Plus certification, so you can be sure that it is made to last.
