DECKED Partners Add Traction to Truck Bed Action

DECKED introduces Traction Mat by SeaDek to combat the aggravation of
cargo or gear sliding around in your truck bed. DECKED partnered with SeaDek to bring its renowned, marine-grade, self-adhesive, closed-cell ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam padding to the DECKED truck bed Drawer System.
DECKED’s patented Drawer System helps your truck bed work harder and store smarter. And the Drawer System’s top deck is great for what it’s designed to do — hold up to 2,000 pounds of gear on top of the in-bed drawer storage. But when it comes to offering a slip-resistant surface, the recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic deck can leave some to be desired in inclement weather. The new DECKED Traction Mat by SeaDek solves this problem, while adding some color and unique style to the Drawer System’s top deck.
“Let’s be honest, in the rain, the Drawer System’s deck can be as slick as a buttered eel on a
marble floor. The SeaDek Traction Mat brings much-needed grip and traction to the deck,” said DECKED VP of Marketing, Greg Randolph. “In addition to holding your gear in place like it's stuck in quicksand, the cushy material creates a soft pad on the deck panels, making it easier on the knees, elbows, and back, should one be crawling around back there.”
DECKED partnered with SeaDek to add traction and all-weather grip to its Drawer System
because of SeaDek's expertise in marine flooring, which spans nearly four decades. SeaDek is renowned in the boating industry for creating the original marine non-slip flooring solution.
SeaDek is the industry’s largest, most trusted supplier and installer of non-skid products.
The DECKED SeaDek Traction Mat is router-cut to match the topography and geometry of the DECKED Drawer System for uninhibited access to stored gear and does not interfere with Drawer System removal or reinstallation. What’s more, removal leaves no residue or fragments should one decide it isn’t their cup of tea.
Installation is super easy. The 6mm-thick Traction Mat comes with an adhesive back which performs like a giant sticker. Users simply start at the tailgate end of the bed, remove the first few inches of the protective film covering the adhesive surface, align it and stick it to the deck panel, then slowly begin peeling the backing off and pressing the mat to the panel as they go.
Traction Mat is priced at $525 and available for 5’6” and 6’6” full-size truck and cargo van
DECKED systems, as well as 5’1” and 6’1” mid-size truck and cargo van DECKED systems.
