What our clients think

Wayne Price, Construction Director, NJS Group Ltd

We trialled G& M Safe Deck and four years later we have not looked back. We have invested in material and employing staff to cope. G&M Safe deck are a very professional and reliable company, NJS safe deck are looking forward to continuing our relationship for many years. Every client whom we introduce the Safety Decking to love the speed and always ask for it on their next job.

Jake Iles, Health & Safety Advisor, Gleeson Homes

Making the move from our previous fall protection method of soft landing bags over to safety decking was made so much easier by the guidance and assistance from the team at G&M.  It’s great to be able to pick up the phone and speak with a familiar face who understands the company’s needs as opposed to having to deal with different people on a regular basis. As a result we have a good working relationship with G&M, and an robust decking system in place on site.
