October Question Of The Month


Why use GRP over other materials for your anti slip stair solutions?


Glass-reinforced plastic (GRP is a lightweight, extremely strong and resilient material which can be fashioned into any shape, size or colour required. The lightweight strength of GRP makes it a highly desirable choice in construction projects. It reduces the products weight and requires less cleaning and maintenance making it a popular choice over traditional building materials like brick, metal and timber.

It can be integrated with an anti-slip grit which offers a larger durability than if it was just sprinkled on top and applied that way. GRP has a high resistance to; ultraviolet light, which reduces the fading of colour, extreme temperatures, salt air and chemicals including most acids.

FibreGrid’s SlipGrip GRP anti slip stair nosings and covers are the most durable solution to your slippery stairs. The SlipGrip range is made by pultrusion through a steel die as opposed to the hand lay-up method.

This means the thickness is consistent throughout the length of the product, and it’s more rigid and resistant to expansion making it ideal for high footfall areas. Furthermore, in utilising isophthalic polyester resin with glass woven matting, Fibregrid’s non slip GRP stair tread and covers reach the highest demands in both safety and durability.

The SlipGrip non-slip stair tread cover range has a solution for all levels of traffic, from rarely used fire escapes to public train station steps. A range of colours and sizes are available, as well as a glow in the dark option for unlit areas. SlipGrip stair tread covers are Building Regulations compliant as well as DDA compliant with a 55mm contrasted nosing.
