Bainland Lodge Park is a rural escape housing over 70 lodges and glamping tents, each with its own decking area, integrated hot tub, BBQ, and seating facilities. Marley Antislip Plus decking was chosen for the refurbishment and upgrade of the lodge decking area, a hub for social gatherings, and a key draw for anybody staying at the park.
Based in the beautiful surroundings of the Lincolnshire countryside, nestled on the outskirts of the picturesque Edwardian Town of Woodhall Spa, Bainland Lodge Park is a wilderness retreat for those who want to escape city life, but still want a 5-star experience.
One of Bainland’s key goals was to ensure both the safety and aesthetic feel of the decking around its iconic hot tubs. As such, Bainland came to Jackson Buildbase with a simple brief: to provide a safe and suitable product for the decked areas of each lodge.
Marley’s Antislip Plus decking was specified to maintain the park’s natural aesthetic, whilst also providing a hard wearing solution with safety in mind. The decking provided Bainland with both improved grip and low-slip potential. This was done in an attempt to minimise the risk of accidental slips and falls.
To make sure the project ran smoothly, Bainland worked closely with their preferred supplier, Jackson Buildbase, with whom they have enjoyed a strong partnership over the years. By delivering excellent logistics, Jackson Buildbase has supported the park’s growth in recent years while keeping disruption to a minimum. The installer of the park’s decking was no exception, with deliveries coordinated to suit the contractor’s schedule.
“Our relationship with the park represents an ongoing project of chalet installations that encompasses work across the board, from plant to materials” explained Paul at Jackson Buildbase. Commenting on Marley’s anti-slip decking, he went on to add: “Marley Antislip Plus decking is a product we have been using for a long time because of the incredible benefits it brings to a project, and we always recommend the product to our clients when drawing up plans for undertakings such as this.”
Sabre Contracts are responsible for all work on the site. “The whole park is outfitted with Antislip Plus decking and handrails,” commented Brian of Sabre. “The timber decking is also used for the bridges and boardwalks around the three lakes of the park, designed for wild swimming. So far, over 7,000 linear meters of Marley Antislip decking has been installed at Bainland Lodge Park ensuring the park maintains its rustic feel and distinct aesthetic.”
Marley Antislip Plus deck boards have been independently tested by the Health & Safety Laboratory in accordance with BS 7976 and significantly exceed the minimum slip requirements. The deck boards are preservative treated, and for the application at Bainland Lodge Park, treated to Use Class 3 to ensure longevity.
As with all projects, Marley were on hand to provide technical support from specification to installation. Marley ensures that all its products stand the test of time and all decking is treated to achieve a 30-year service life. This treatment does not need to be reapplied after initial application.
Marley are certified to both FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) and all of Marley’s decking products are manufactured from sustainably sourced timber and structurally graded to a minimum of C16.
Whether it’s swimming in the lakes or socialising in the hot tubs, Bainland Lodge Park’s guests and management alike are enjoying the peace of mind that comes with using a high quality decking solution.
