The Best Anti Slip Paints for Wood Stairs, Decks, Floors and More
Nothing quite compares to the beauty of wood as a building material, but it comes with a price – it doesn’t take much to make it slippery. Rain, dew, or ice can all lead to stairs or decks becoming a dangerous surface and, in a place as wet as the UK, this moisture promotes the growth of mould. The only way to avoid slips or falls is to be preemptive and protect yourself and others by applying an anti slip paint for wood.
Below are some of the top-rated anti slip products for wood for interior, exterior, decks, stairs, or any other timber surface. For a look at how these paints work to prevent slips, head further down to our non slip guide.

Pre-mixed or two part: How anti slip coating for wood works
Making a surface anti slip requires an increase in friction. The most common way to increase friction is to make the surface profile rougher – think of the difference between running your hand across sandpaper versus running your hand across paper. Of course if you are painting your deck, you don’t want it to feel really rough underfoot. There are two ways to achieve an anti slip surface:
- Pre-mixed non slip coating for wood
This is the coating you buy in a tin at the local hardware store. All of the coatings above are pre-mixed. The anti slip aggregate (the stuff that makes it rough) is already included and all you need to do is open the tin and crack on. This is the easiest option but also means that you can’t choose the aggregate for yourself and are limited to the colours and finishes provided.
- Two component coating + aggregate
Aggregate can be purchased separately and mixed in with the coating prior to application. This allows you to choose the type of aggregate (rubber, glass beads, sand, etc) as well as the coating. Be aware though, not all aggregate is suitable for all coating types.
