Slips on stairs can be very serious and sometimes fatal. Our self-adhesive anti-slip tapes or SparkleTuff™ transparent anti-slip coating on stair treads can protect against foot slips, but self-adhesive, nonabrasive grip tape on the handrail can provide valuable “insurance” at low cost. The tapes are PVC with an embossed pattern on the surface. A base-layer of PET (polyethene terephthalate) is added underneath for better insulation during the cold months. Yet they are quite thin (0.035″).
The handrail grip tapes can be applied in one of three ways:
1. Horizontal. The tape is applied lengthways along the top of the railing. The video illustrates.
2. Tight spiral. Gives nearly 100 percent coverage. No stopping installation to cut pieces is necessary.
3. Spaced spiral. This makes the material go farther but is only recommended for internal areas — some of the bare railing will still be exposed.
Our H3418 handrail grip tapes are “FAR certified” for aircraft use.
To apply, just make sure the handrail surface is clean and dry. For the COVID-19 age and flu seasons, where necessary the tapes can be sanitized in use using most cleaners, alcohol, bleach or almost any other commercial cleaning product.
