The works undertaken by Roofing Consultants Group are of the highest standard, and we have no hesitation in using them again for any future projects we have in the pipeline.

Our Client is an Arm’s Length Management Organisation or ALMO and while the local Council owns the company, it operates independently from it on day-to-day matters.

The Challenge
Health & Safety, slips trips and falls is a priority in looking after the safety of their Customers. During a recent balcony/communal walkway upgrade the external staircase access needed to be an anti –slip surface.

The Solution
We applied made to measure SlipGrip stair treads and landing treads, these products are high performance safety stair treads and also available are landing covers and flat sheets, they are made from high quality GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic), a combination of resins and reinforcing fibres. These products can also be used for a vast amount of different applications and come with a 10+ years warranty (subject to traffic analysis).

To maintain the warranties for the new tread system we recommended that our client follows the guidance from the SlipGrip manufacturer who recommends that the treads and landing are also cleaned down on a regular basis. Dirt and debris can easily be removed by using a stiff brush. Using Grezoff detergent or similar, warm water and a suitable brush, scrub the areas until clean. The excess water can be removed using a wet/dry vacuum cleaner or absorbable materials.
