Everything you ever wanted to know about TACTILES, but were too confused to ask… Well, they are more than just a stick down product!
A few months ago, we touched on the subject of slippery boardwalks and the perils of using chicken wire mesh as a method of slip resistance when it’s a hazard in itself. As well as boardwalks, countryside stiles also have their problems. These get slimy with a build-up of algae and moss and are extremely […]
As we transition into Spring the weather will improve and as with every year, this draws more people into the great outdoors. Even more so this year, as stage by stage we come out of lockdown. As more people want to get out and about, now’s the time to make sure your outdoor areas are […]
Chicken wire mesh is ideal for chicken enclosures and rabbit runs, but we wonder why it is still being used as a slip resistant measure when it’s a hazard in itself.

We all know that those ‘No Win, No Fee’ solicitors need to earn some money somewhere! They are waiting to handle a […]
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 […]
