Stairs are one of the areas that represent the highest risk of slipping or falling.
The primary cause is the lack of friction on the edge of the tread. The 90 degrees angle is where footing shall be regained once out of balance. Often, this is also where you slip…
Do you usually remember to keep a hand on the rail while walking on a staircase? Have you ever fallen on stairs?
These things might be harder than you expect because you are up against the force of habit. We all know what we should do and we are repeatedly reminded about it in one way or another. The challenge is then to remind each other in various ways. Incorporating the topic of everyday safety in different projects or tasks is one way of doing it.
What we can do for you is making treads and stairs as visible and slip proof as possible.
We like to use a contrast color on the nose of a step to increase the visibility. This helps you distinguish the level differences. Our most popular color combination is a black tread with a yellow nose – but any RAL color can be made to order.
Our different solutions all have been part of a still ongoing development and experience from our 10 years of supplying the Offshore, Oil and Gas industry.
