JOHN BRASH - New School Decked Out With JB Antislip Plus®

John Ferneley High School, the new £14.6million college in the picturesque market town of Melton Mowbray, has used John Brash’s innovative JB Antislip Plus decking to create a safe, slip resistant surface for pupils.

The 800-pupil development constructed by Willmott Dixon on behalf of Leicestershire County Council replaces the existing school and is an exemplar of sustainable design and construction. It features a Sedum roof on the first floor, as well as incorporating structurally insulated panel (SIP) technology on the walls. There is also a 25kw wind turbine, a wood pellet biomass heater and rainwater harvesting.

The decking was fitted by Tanbry Construction, a Mansfield-based building and joinery company that works across the public and commercial sectors.

JB Antislip Plus was specified by the architectural firm White Design Sustainable Architecture due to its robustness and slip resistant qualities, which will improve health and safety levels as well as enhancing the attractiveness of the school’s landscaped areas.

The JB Antislip Plus timber decking was installed on two teaching terraces and on a platform that borders the green roof.

Roger Orton, Project Manager at Tanbry Construction, said: “This is a prestigious project that we are proud to have been involved in. The decking has proved to be the ideal solution as it looks very attractive and the slip resistant surface will provide a safer surface for students and teachers.”

JB Antislip Plus uses a unique formula of resin based aggregate inserts that are injected into grooves in the deck boards, which significantly improves slip resistance. The deck boards specified on John Ferneley High School were from the John Brash DeckSure® range and are made from selected joinery grade European Redwood graded to BS4978:1996, strength class C16.

John Brash JB Antislip Plus has been independently tested by the Health & Safety Laboratory (HSL) using a Stanley Pendulum Test. During these tests, it significantly exceeded the minimum requirement for ‘low potential for slip’. With just the two inserts specified at John Ferneley High School, the decking achieved a score of 63, even when wet, which is over double the minimum requirement of 27.

Christian Brash, Managing Director of John Brash, said: “JB Antislip Plus is a market leading product that has been specified widely for a number of school projects as it is ideal for areas with high pedestrian traffic where there is a danger of slips or trips. The inserts can be fitted as part of castellated or smooth decking, depending on design considerations.”

The inserts were chosen in the popular grey colour for the school decking, as this complemented the colour of the new building and maintained a natural look in keeping with the sustainable agenda. JB Antislip Plus inserts are available in a range of colours including red, green, blue and yellow. These colour options not only add an extra aesthetic dimension, but can be used to safely highlight changes in gradient where steps or slopes are located.

John Brash is committed to environmental best practice and all its timber is either FSC or PEFC certified, meaning timber is sourced from sustainable forests only. John Brash timber is supplied with a chain of custody number, verifying that it is sourced from independently certified and well managed forests.
