Anti Slip GRP solutions for all weathers

Attempting to paint an anti-slip finish to surfaces outside during the winter months is extremely tricky as wet and cold conditions prevent or severely prolong the curing process.

One huge benefit of GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic, a combination of resins and reinforcing fibres) products is that they can be installed in all weathers and instantly walked on without shutting the area down for long periods providing they are fixed with the standard double fixing method of adhesive and screw fixings. Any surface can accept GRP providing it is in good condition and reasonably level and the anti slip aggregate offers extreme slip resistance even in wet or poor weather conditions. A virtually indestructible range, GRP offers long term solutions for heavy traffic areas due to the incorporated resin bonded anti slip surface.

The Disability Discrimination Act, specifically the sections relevant to the partially sighted, requires all stairs which are accessible by members of the public should have a contrasting coloured nosing fitted to the step edges and in addition should provide a slip resistant top surface.
