Anti-slip solutions for golf courses provide their members with a comfortable and safe space to play in confidence. Wooden sleeper steps are used extensively around golf courses, but they attract algae and moss, turning them into dangerous slipping hazards. Golf courses need a safety tread that is hardwearing in all weathers and specifically resistant to golfing shoes. (more…)
Slips and trips occur across all education premises. Whether you're a small local primary school, a busy secondary school, a multi-site further education college, or the campus of a higher education institution, you'll have hazards. Education premises provide a wide variety of facilities to the whole community, open to employees, pupils and members of public.

We needed to get matters sorted out for the coming season, and one of the things on the (long) list was finding a way to make the bridges safer, particularly after a drop of rain – not that we’ve had much of that recently as my hydro returns clearly show.

Slips - Trips and Falls are the most common cause of major injuries in Schools ..... Yes, even in the Summer Months !!
If its slippery - cover it !
Slipping is often associated with the outside on steps in wet and wintry seasons, but slips frequently occur inside the school with spillages from water bottles, around water fountains, hot drink dispensers, in canteens, kitchens, toilets and of course, walked in rainwater from shoes all contribute to potential high risk slip hazards!
Schools and Colleges have a duty of care for its students and staff and identifying the hazards which are simple and easy to prevent, but all too often they are overlooked.
Making your steps that much safer and free from dangerous slipping means free from any liability.

Problem Solved at Olton Golf Club from Mark, Course Manager
What was the problem?
Most of our tee steps and crossing bridges at Olton GC are quite old, with the timber and gripping becoming very worn so we decided to re-build them. We are prioritising the worst ones first and intend to work through, installing a few new ones each season.
What did you look at and how did you come by Gripclad?
I looked at many different samples online but most were far too bulky to use and just not suitable for the job. I stumbled across Gripclad in the Greenkeeping magazine and decided to give them a call to find out more about their anti-slip panels. Having seen a few pictures and testimonials I was confident they would be ideal for the job.
How easy is it to fit Gripclad?
The panels were delivered cut exactly to the size we required and just screwed into the timbers securely. No mess, no hassle.
What has been the result since you’ve installed Gripclad cleats?
The end result was superb with many favourable comments from our members. With still quite a few steps and bridges to re-build I can be confident that the anti-slip panels are a hit and finish the job very effectively
