PREVENT SLIP ACCIDENTS AT SCHOOL
The risk of slipping can be greatly reduced in schools. Because of the high footfall and impact applied to the stairwells and walkway areas, it's clear that a permanent slip-resistant solution is needed. Use our anti-slip stair tread covers and flat sheeting to simply retrofit onto the existing surfaces.

Are you a school with slip hazard issues?
How did we help?
The existing walkways and chequer-plated steps were unsafe for the foot traffic in these premises. Wet chequer plate contributes to slip accidents and so "Cladding", a superior overlay product from GripClad, offered a long-term risk-free solution.
For visually impaired students and teachers, all step edges and nosing edges have contrasting colour edges to define the step edge, increasing safety.
We solved the problem?
The school wanted a high wear-resistant solution instead of a short-term coating method, and it must provide a good level of slip resistance. GripClad's stair nosing solution was the obvious choice because they were easy to install over existing stairs, steps and walkways. A retrofit product that offers long-term peace of mind and is virtually maintenance-free was the real answer.
