Antislip Solutions for Stairs

SafeMate offers three main types of antislip solutions for stairs. They are Stair Nosings, Stair Cappings, Bull Nose Cappings, and Offshore Nosings – each one designed to suit specific design and environment. They are easily fitted and suitable for use with common substrates such as ferrous and non-ferrous metals, concrete, timber, plastics, and composites. They provide unfailing antislip surface for pedestrians in all conditions.

Slips, trips, and falls from steps and stairs very commonly occur in domestic, commercial, and industrial environments. The frequency of such incidences is more or less same in all the environments. According to report published by Safe Work Australia (SWA), based on extensive studies carried out between 2003 – 2011, there were 3815 claims due to fall from steps and stairways. While most of the falls on pedestrian surfaces resulted in injuries, Australian Bureau of Statistics has also deaths attributed to falls from stairs and steps. According to SWA, most falls occur in schools, hospitals, cleaning services company, and government agencies.

SafeMate’s antislip solutions ensure safer passage for pedestrians in all conditions, indoor, and outdoor. They are durable, economical; withstand heavy traffic and are longer lasting permanent fixtures to the structure. Non-slip tape and composite (FRP) alternatives are prone to peeling, cracking, and embrittle when subjected to extremes in weather.
