Opened for play in 1992, The Manor House is a golf course like no other. The mature oak and beech trees that line the magnificent fairways together with the immaculate greens and the River Bybrook meandering through the middle bring both drama and beauty to this Championship course.
The staff at The Manor House began to become aware of their members slipping on the sleepers at the course. The sleepers, designed to allow the club's members to traverse the magnificent grounds, became unsafe when wet. They chose wooden sleepers for their natural appearance, but the the number of accidents called for a response. After unsuccessful attempts at using chicken wire to cover the sleepers, the staff at The Manor House realised they needed something more.
Our specialist installers applied GRP anti-slip treads to the hazard areas around the course. Manufactured from corrosion resistant GRP substrates and polyester resins incorporating refined high grade aluminium oxide aggregate granules for an extremely durable and slip resistant finish. A GRP substrate offers significant advantages over traditional metal and wood substrates.
The Course Manager said: "This product was pre-cut to our required measurements and very easy to install with screws and adhesive provided. I was impressed that the treads would mould into the sleeper dents and knots, thus taking away any trip hazard through raised treads".

"Since installing Gripclad Anti-Slip Safety Treads I have been thoroughly impressed to find that the grip performed just as well in the rain and hard frost."
