OVERLAYS from the Grating Company are FRP (fibreglass reinforced ployester) non-slip plates that can be fitted over existing stairs/steps (concrete, steel or timber). Nosings are a slip-resistant step edging. Both products offer superior traction in wet or oily conditions.
To meet current OH&S requirements it is necessary to provide a safe solution where there is a need for a non-slip, non corrosive, non-conductive and fire resistant environment as the new laws passed in July 2005 mean there is no excuses for property managers and building owners who don't provide a safe environment for visitors and staff.
All buildings must comply with new the strict OH &S standards. This was recently highlighted at the relatively new building of MYOB where aluminum checker plated steps and landings became a slip hazard and the TreadGrip Overlay and Flat Plate became a very affordable solution in making the steps safe without the costly alternative of replacement.
The fines and penalties are severe – compliance gives peace of mind and makes buildings safe for everyone.
The Grating Company specialises in all types of FRP non-slip products.
