Ranked by respected national surveys as one of Canada’s top three comprehensive universities for almost 20 years, Simon Fraser University is named after a famous explorer and known for its pioneering spirit.
One of the university’s three campuses located at Burnaby was looking for a company which would be able to provide them with an anti slip product for slippery when wet stairs.
They contacted Tile Safe Products, whose company is building an excellent reputation throughout North America for providing a "one stop surface safety shop" for a wide range of sustainable, environmentally friendly solutions to address identified floor and other surface safety issues.
As the university has worked with Tile Safe Products in the past to solve slipping issues in it’s Surrey campus bathrooms, they once again turned to Tile Safe for help at the Burnaby campus. Initially they have nominated some existing concrete stairs which were in poor condition and slippery when wet.
Tile Safe had proposed the Safe Grip Anti-Slip strips to be applied over nominated stairs. The product was suggested for the nominated areas due to its proven outstanding and sustainable slip resistive quality and suitability to the environment. The Safe Grip anti slip stair nosing will not only provide a sustainable anti slip surface on the stairs but also will assist the visually impaired, due to the strong luminance contrast of the stair nosing.
The trial project is completed and the feedback from the university management is excellent. They indicated their total satisfaction with the quality of the workmanship and the professionalism of the Tile Safe team.
Specific mention was made that the Tile Safe team not only made the stairs safe to use, but also improved the overall aesthetical appearance.
Management has indicated that further work will be done in the near future in other areas of the campus.
Tile Safe Products is offering a unique, sustainable and mainly environmentally friendly remedial solution range for virtually any surfaces and situations. The solutions provided by the company are also being used at thousands of situations throughout various parts of the world via the Global Safety Surfaces network© members.
