A Coffs Harbour (northern New South Wales) -based large shopping centre required a sustainable and highly slip resistive solution for their external checker plate stairs.

The facilities manager had contacted Global Safe and enquired about a solution which could be installed by their local contractor.

Global Safe had proposed using the Safe Grip Ultimate anti slip stair nosing as the product would provide a sustainable Pendulum Class V slip resistance, as it's a non-dangerous goods product and cures quickly.

Another important consideration in the provision of instructions was that the work could be done by the centre's tradesman, who despite having experience with epoxy products, had not worked with Safe Grip Ultimate. This method had successfully worked before in the US and now was put to the test in Australia.

Full surface preparation and installation instructions and the materials were provided to the centre management who organised their local tradesman to carry out the work.

The job was completed successfully and the facility manager has provided the following feedback about the product as well as of the tradesman:

"I've been on holiday and this job was completed a month ago but our tradesman could not have been more impressed with your product in regards to ease of application, quick drying time and nonslip qualities also the information you provided was of great help to us and our contractor.

"Overall the centre is very happy with the Safe Grip Ultimate product to the point we have recommend your product to other companies."

The Safe Grip Ultimate has lots of advantages over several competitive products, including the very fast curing time which is vitally important in situations where there is a serious time constraint.

Also, the product is applied only as a single layer solutions, eliminating the requirement of waiting for the product to cure between coats, which makes it less labour intensive and more cost effective.

This is in addition to the product being long lasting and providing a very high slip sustainable slip resistance, choice of colours and environmentally friendliness.
