JB CitiDeck at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew

Royal Botanic Gardens Kew play area benefits from slip-free JB CitiDeck

  • 13 Jan 2017

A new children’s play area has been built at the Royal Botanic Gardens using JB CitiDeck from Marley Eternit

Made to attract more families to Kew’s country estate in West Sussex, the playground is safe for children and has a natural feel to blend in with its woodland surroundings. 

It’s rounded design meant the material chosen needed to be easy to cut, to wrap around the shape of trees, and possess large, overhang structures.

Designed for areas of heavy usage, JB CitiDeck from Marley Eternit was specified as the ideal material for the task at hand. The product is easy to cut and maintain due to its characteristic smooth profile, that is also non-slip, durable and weathers naturally.

Originally developed for London’s Olympic Park, JB CitiDeck is now specified for many urban applications and public spaces, from schools and hospitals to housing developments and restaurants. The product is guaranteed to last for at least 15 years.

Contractor Cedarwood Joinery fitted JB CitiDeck quickly and easily, with service and help from Marley Eternit to ensure the play area was completed to schedule.
