Non-Slip Step Solutions
The traditional metal checkerboard and expanded mesh steps traditionally used throughout the maritime industry become slippery when wet, and offer no firm footing whilst rolling and pitching.
Given the nature of the offshore industry, a wet surface is expected! It’s not surprising, therefore, to discover that the majority of injuries to crew members on their ascent/ descent via steps are due to an inability to secure adequate footholds.
A simple, ingenious, cost-effective solution (which will help to prevent accidents) is to clad conventional steps with “bolt-on/bolt-off”, slip-resistant fibreglass covers.
These durable, lightweight, add-on step covers are bolted universally - to fit all types of decking and stairways and can be replaced with ease, when worn.
Advantages of marine quality non-slip step solutions:
• Non-slip “add-on” fibreglass strips
• Durable & light
• Universally installed on all types of steps
• Custom made to exact shape and size
• Replaceable within minutes when worn
• Firm foothold throughout ascent/descent on steps
• Eliminates a potential LTA
