slip resistant stair treads, nosing, landing plates and flat sheets

anti-slip safety edging and tread covers FOR NEW STAIRS AND STEPS AND RETRO-FIT

Slipgrip grp anti-slip sheet outdoor slippery rampAs an employer or property owner, Health and Safety regulations demand that you make environments "as safe as possible". This means that you can be held legally liable for slips or trips due to slippery or worn pedestrian areas. Even brand new metal treadplates, frequently fitted as a 'safe' flooring to fire escapes and walkways, actually becomes excessively slippery with a slick of mud, oil or water; wood and stone are equally dangerous when rain comes into contact with even a light coating of algae. Then, of course, there are the dangers of the cracks and cavities which appear over time in materials like stone and cement, particularly after the harsh winters we have experienced recently in the UK. The solution is SlipGrip, a GRP (fibreglass) anti-slip floor covering which is suitable for pedestrian, forklift and vehicle traffic areas, requires little surface preparation and can be used within an hour of installation.


Slipgrip grp anti-slip sheet metal spiral staircaseEdgeGrip is suitable for use on any form of uneven concrete area as well as ramps, platforms, gangways, footbridges, decking and marinas. It is made from GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) and resin impregnated with an aluminium oxide grit, meaning that the grit – the non-slip element – won’t wear off. GRP is lightweight, so it’s easy to handle, yet very, very strong: in fact, on a weight for weight basis it’s seven times stronger than mild steel. It has minimal expansion and contraction characteristics, which means that it won’t bow or warp in extreme temperatures; it won’t rust or corrode either, and it enjoys excellent flexural strength which can be further enhanced with the addition of a woven reinforcement if required. A choice of coarse ('E' for external use) and medium ('I' for internal use) grades of grit means that there is an ideal solution for any application, old or new – the coarser the grit, the greater the grip.


Applying visually contrasting nosings to steps and stairs both internally and externally is a Building Regulations requirement for new steps and stairs; it will also help you to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act, by helping staff and visitors with visual impairments identify, navigate and negotiate steps.
