Euro Gripdeck Plywood
Description

Euro Gripdeck (anti-slip) is a European-made, Euro Birch (Betula pendula) core exterior plywood, with a non-slip surface. Designed for the transport industry, it has a highly durable, phenolic surface that’s dark brown with a wire mesh pattern.

Extremely popular with engineers in New Zealand, and is particularly useful for ute decks and  the vehicle fit-out industry, combining high-wear resistance with value-adding visual appeal.

Limitations on Use

It is critical with Euro Gripdeck that all cut edges are sealed and if possible a sealant is applied to any joins and edges where moisture will sit.

Plywood is a natural product that can be affected by changes in weather conditions: moisture and temperature. Increased moisture content or temperature variation may cause internal stresses causing previously flat sheets to bow. At Plymasters precautions are taken to minimise this effect. However, once the plywood has left the warehouse Plymasters cannot guarantee sheets to remain flat unless fastened. When storing panels, stack on a firm raised base with enough support to prevent sagging. Cover the pallet to protect top and edges.
