Safety a priority with new SlipGrip Safety Glow

FibreGrid, producer of anti-slip flooring products, has launched SlipGrip Safety Glow, a photoluminescent resin coating for step-nosings to make them glow in the dark.

The company's latest addition to its SlipGrip range should help in reducing accidents, as SlipGrip Safety Glow uses a photoluminescent resin which absorbs light during the day, and glows through the night. By day stair treads look like any other in the FibreGrid range. However, when darkness descends, the new SlipGrip Safety Glow coating on the step-nosing glows for up to eight hours, so illuminating potentially hazardous steps, kerbs and edges. It doesn't matter if there is no sun, as they will charge in overcast conditions, and they aren't just for outdoor use as they are also charged by electric light.

SlipGrip Safety Glow is available in medium or coarse slip resistant finishes, and is suitable for heavy pedestrian traffic. Suggested applications would be steps and kerbs in public car parks, hospitals, educational establishments, loading bays, stairs, ramps, and fire exits. The medium grade slip resistant finish is ideal for indoor steps where, if there is a power cut, people will be able to still exit a building safely.
