After 175 years of moulding young minds, the University of Winchester was in need of an update. They found that their paving slabs were extremely slippery when wet and with the high volume of student foot traffic the risk of a nasty incident was heightened.
The worn out painted highlighted edge to define where the step edge serves no purpose now as it has faded away. The university wanted a long term solution to fix the problem of potential slip accidents and to minimise, if not eradicate the risk as much as possible.
The University Maintenance department chose our GRP Stair Tread covers in grey colour with a white contrasting nose edge to overlay the existing concrete steps. Our product was clearly the front runner in choice because they had used paints and tapes but wanted a tough long lasting method in which to make walking around the campus safer. Our stair tread covers are a complete one piece section which includes a drop down nosing over the stair riser, this allows the edging to be colour contrasting which assists the visually impaired to define the step edge when descending or ascending the stairs.
