CREATING SAFE RAILWAY SLEEPERS
New timber sleepers and reclaimed railway sleepers are used for many exterior applications. You will find many used around golf courses, open spaces, or nature trails, for example. But whilst they may look smart, they can be a real danger to those walking on them.
In wet conditions, the damp gets into the wood, creating a real slip hazard. The smooth contours of the wood which are usually found in these types of exterior applications only increase this risk.
GRP Anti-Slip Flat Plate Sheets and Panels from GripClad are the perfect answer to slip prevention in the long term.

GRIPCLAD PRODUCTS IN ACTION
We supply to hundreds of golf clubs in the UK and Europe. At The Manor House Golf Club, the course manager had become aware of members slipping on the sleepers at the course.
The sleepers, designed to allow the club's members to traverse the magnificent grounds, became unsafe when wet.
They chose wooden sleepers for their natural appearance, but the number of accidents called for a response. After unsuccessful attempts at using chicken wire to cover the sleepers, they decided upon our neat, tidy and most practical product.
Now both staff and visitors to The Manor House are able to enjoy a safe visit without the detriment to looks, either!
"Since installing GripClad Anti-Slip Flat Plate Treads I have been thoroughly impressed to find that the grip performed just as well in the rain and hard frost."
Robert Preston, Course Manager at The Manor House Golf Club
