Resene Decks Path Driveways and Recreational Areas Paints

Decks – Paths – Driveways – Recreational Areas Painting

Giving your steps and porch a fresh coat of paint can do wonders for the overall look of your entrance way. Simply wash down the existing coating, remove any loose flaking material, prime or seal if needed and re-coat using two coats of Resene Walk-on; Resene Walk-on is a satin general purpose flooring and paving paint, based on tough acrylic resins to give maximum durability and abrasion resistance in a single pack finish; Ideal for use on steps, decking, concrete, porches, suitably primed timber, composite boards and interior floors.

Resene Walk-on colors are also available in Resene Uracryl where a high performance two pack system is preferred; Consider using a Resene CoolColour version of the color if you are applying a dark color outside as it will help to reflect more heat than the normal version of the same color.

The palette shown is a taste of the colors available in Resene Walk-on. Choose from over 1000 Resene colors from the Resene Total Co lour System tinted from white, pastel, light, mid and ultra deep tone.

Non-Skid Deck & Path

Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path has been designed to provide a comfortable walking surface for all interior and exterior situations where a non-skid finish is desired; Available in a desirable low sheen finish, Environmental Choice approved Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path may be tinted to complement existing decor, both inside and out. Combinations of contrasting colors may be used to create decorative effects in courtyards and pathed areas, either as part of a new landscaping plan or to rejuvenate weathered surfaces.

It is recommended that a light colour is applied to the edge of each step to clearly identify the edge of each step reducing the likelihood of accident. Resene Pompeii should not be used on broad surface areas as it will be more prone to dirt marking.
