The Natural Slip Resistance of Ipe Makes this Kayak Launch Safe

Advantage Ipe™ Used for Kayak Launch

Project Helps Disabled Veterans Enjoy the Roanoke River in Virginia

Sometimes there are projects that deserve more than simple recognition; they deserve to be praised. The Buggs Island Universally Accessible Launch is one of those projects. Constructed using Advantage Ipe , the purpose of this project is to help ordinary citizens and veterans of the armed forces with their recreational therapy. With this kayak launch, anyone who suffers from a disability can enjoy kayaking in Virginia's Roanoke River.

Advantage Ipe is naturally slip-resistant and gives excellent traction when pushing the kayak down the launch. For disabled veterans, this kind of activity is a perfect way to achieve their recreational therapy goals and enjoy the outdoors.

According to Scott Murray, the Upper Reach Regional Director, "The non-skid works great so far. It has been under water daily and I have walked on it soaking wet without problem. Thanks for a great product!"

Advantage Ipe is available in various widths, lengths, and profiles.
