In the current world, in this pandemic, companies are obligated to ensure their premises are ‘Covid-19 secure’. Even sectors that don’t open to the public have a duty to protect their workers and take reasonable steps to control the risk and protect them from coronavirus.
The global pandemic has brought with it a new use for our anti-slip tape and pads; as social distance markers they are perfect as our high quality tapes use pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) to keep them stuck down for longer. You can be sure that GripClad anti-slip tape & pads always provide an anti-slip surface that is durable, efficient and effective.
Social distance measures look set to stick around as part of the ‘new normal’ for some time.
For businesses that are making preparations to re-open you’ll be looking at how to enforce the social distancing requirements and for those that were able to continue trading during the pandemic you’ll already have some form of social distancing measures in place, but how are they holding up after 3 months? We know many businesses that have had issues with their markers and tapes peeling up due to poor quality tapes used.
Over the years working with many golf courses, we’ve had a few customers who have bought our products after ‘getting their fingers burnt’ by not safeguarding their course against avoidable slips and trips.
We all know that those ‘No Win, No Fee’ solicitors need to earn some money somewhere! They are waiting to handle a claim and they will gather all the evidence including any defect on a golf course where a slip incident occurred.
We are proud to share that over 700 of the UK’s Golf Club’s now enjoy the safety benefits of GripClad’s anti-slip products.
Is a ‘rubber crumb’ product a good alternative?
In recent months we’ve had a few enquiries from golf courses regarding the ‘rubber crumb’ flooring solution products similar to those found in playgrounds to stop children injuring themselves when they fall over, and have been asked whether they are a good anti-slip solution to install around golf course walkways and steps.
Golf is increasingly becoming a year-round sport, subsequently this means the club’s maintenance tasks will increase and the quieter period when maintenance is usually scheduled will decrease.
Whether it is a car park in an airport, hospital, supermarket, train station or a shopping centre, these public areas receive a size-able footfall and revenue.
We’ve recently helped Red Funnel Ferries with a gangway refurbishment with our anti-slip panels, in quick time!
By now we hope you know that GripClad specialises in all things produced from GRP composites, and this covers anti-slip solutions and safety access. It is the latter we want to bring to your attention – our GRP Gratings are often used as an application in the construction industry, predominately for service riser voids.
Service risers are often used to provide a safe working environment during construction.
For a lot of industries, the school Summer holidays are a time for maintenance as lots of staff take leave.
There are usually fewer people about which enables maintenance staff or contractors to get on with well needed maintenance jobs. And, of course, this is most true for schools, colleges, and universities – when ‘school’s out for Summer!’.
