Our communal parts are covered in decking which gets very slippery when wet or icy, so much so that one resident has already broken a leg after falling, and the posties are threatening to stop deliveries.
The leaseholder and the management company don't see this as a problem, as that's what we've got the insurance for... But us residents want to do something to prevent any further incidents. It's mainly a problem in the winter with ice, not a huge problem with just rain, I'd say.
So, has anybody had this problem successfully resolved in their properties, or can anybody suggest any practical and not-too-silly solutions?
You can buy a paint like product that's specifically designed for decking etc. Solves the problemo.
He thinks it'll be enough to put up notices, but we want to make sure people don't slip, as not only will our insurance premium go up but it might have serious health consequences for anybody who breaks bones.
Buy the stuff, apply it and invoice the property management company for labour and materials. They don't pay, take them to small claims court.

Some daft old bat stood right on a petri dish in the cold room. It was dark, what with the light being busted. She landed on her head.
Anyway, H&S nazi woman had a big meeting and said "How can we stop this happening again?"
"Fix the light!"
"Yes, we could, but that sounds more like a symptom......."
I've never seen anyone so powerfully and silently hated by so many people simultaneously. I said "Put a sign up!". Some people laughed.
They put a sign up, light still doesn't work.
Anyway.....we put a load of that skateboard grip tape stuff down (not yer actual skateboard stuff but- y'know). That works. Looks like shit, but works.
I don't think we want the place to look like shit, but the Cuprinol should be easy enough to apply and not noticeable.
That scarily bad US site had loads of interesting stuff, too, but the postage would probably be silly...
