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.
GripClad is a member of The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and we recommend that prevention is key!
Slip resistance longevity with GripClad
One bridge in particular which had a slope up and slope down needed attention and GripClad’s flat sheets were chosen as an ideal product to help prevent this. Back in 2014 they initially installed the 3000 x 1220mm flat sheet through the middle of the bridge as they thought that golfers would use the bridge one at a time, but as the years went on it was noticeable that they were using the bridge walking side by side and practically missing the GripClad anti-slip surface altogether.
Because of the longevity of the product, they were able to reuse the original GripClad flat sheet strips and purchase a few additional from GripClad to relay and cover the whole of the sleeper, thus eliminating the risk of slips.
Course Manager James Williams said:
“The GripClad flat sheet strips are so easy to put down with glue or screws and the strips that we put down 5 years ago still look like new. We will definitely be using GripClad on all our problem areas and on and new projects that we build.
Barry is great to deal with, he knows his product and gives help and advice when needed; delivery of the order was very fast which enabled us to get the problem areas fixed fast.”
