I find decking is fine across the plank, but can be very slippery the other way. Watch out for it staying wet or getting leaves on.

I wonder if one could apply some sort of anti-slip substance to it?

varnish and sand is cheap and effective especially on sawn timber. chicken wire is ace if not very long lasting.

specialist paints, strips and plates are available

large coach screws/bolts are rather handy, iirc there are a good selection of brackets etc as well so as the carpentry part is little more than cutting to length and screwing together.
