Sure-Foot Industries Adds Anti-Slip Fiber Glass Products
Press release date: July 1, 2014
CLEVELAND, OHIO — Sure-Foot Industries Corporation adds Grit-Coated Fiber Glass Step Covers and Walkway Panels to their line of anti-slip flooring solutions. Durable and resilient, these fiber glass (FRP) offerings are ideal for installations in the industrial, marine, transportation and off-shore industries. Sure-Foot’s fiber glass products exceed slip resistance recommendations published by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
These Sure-Foot anti-slip items are constructed of 0.125” thick fire retardant fiberglass (FRP), coated with a proprietary blend of mineral abrasive epoxy grit. This exclusive grit coating provides anti-slip coverage across the entire walking surface. Sure-Foot Step Covers are available in 3”, 9” and 11.75” depths. The 3” & 9” covers are manufactured with a 1” nose while the 11.75” step cover comes with a 2” nose. All FRP products are available in three (3) distinct grit-coating options: Heavy Duty, Medium, and Fine. All grit options exceed slip resistance recommendations as published by OSHA and ADA. Standard color options are safety yellow and black.
The two-color option of safety yellow (nose) with black (surface) color combination meets recommendations from ADA for the visually impaired for contrasting colors, as well as California State Code Title 24 for clearly contrasting color combinations.
Due to their slim and lightweight construction, Sure-Foot Step Covers are ideal for use on structurally sound steps including concrete, grated staircases and steel diamond plate stair treads frequently found in the industrial, transportation and off-shore industries. Sure-Foot Step Covers are designed to remain strong and uphold their anti-slip qualities throughout the life of the product. This durable design allows the product to withstand the heavy foot traffic and harsh conditions often present in today’s demanding environments. Cleaning the step covers is simple: the epoxy surface tolerates industrial floor cleaners, stiff bristled brushing, and pressure washing up to 1,500 PSI. When installed and cared for properly, Sure-Foot Grit-Coated Fiber glass Step Covers & Walkways will help prevent slips, trips and falls in areas where safety is necessary.
