Exterior Anti-slip Stair Treads & Nosings: VulcaGR!P®
VulcaGR!P® is a superior fibreglass GRP product, incorporating the highest quality anti-slip properties, with a high vision front edge combined in the manufacture of the surface texture, upgrades treated areas to the standards set out by HSE and the DDA for grip and sightlines.
Manufactured by, gritted aggregate applied to resin profiles at the wet stage of production in order to give maximum anti-wear properties and minimize any deteriation in surface performance. This product can be manufactured in General Purpose Class 3 resins, Class 1 fire-rated Isophthalic resins, or, for non-smoke and non-toxic gas situations a phenolic resin can be used.
VulcaGR!P® manufactured in these phenolic resins passes the BS 6853 toxicity & smoke emissions test.
The Fused Alumina grit becomes an integral part of the tread and the nosing can then be two-pack over painted to the client choice of any BS colour.
This product features heavily in the DDA scheme of requirements due to the contrasting colours available on the tread and the nosing area.
The VulcaGR!P® product range consists of Stair nosings, complete Stair treads, Flat sheets and Ladder rung covers. Strips for Decking planks give the ultimate grip even in wet conditions.
Solid GRP nosings are available in two standard sizes,55mm x 55mm (VG55) and 70mm x 30mm (VG70).
The complete Stair treads are produced in 300mm and 400mm sizes but can be cut to any depth from 150mm upwards. Standard colours are White, Yellow, and Black, but any colour of the 100 BS range can be an option. A 55mm downturn on all these profiles gives the correct level of vision.
Flat sheets are used to complete Landing areas, walkways & access ramps. On a very thin backing sheet of 1.5mm, VulcaGR!P® can be used in our Aluminium, Brass and Stainless Steel ranges of treads.
With the VulcaGR!P Manufacture there are three grit levels available. C16: the most common and is used for Rail Highways & industrial, C25: is more in use with the Aluminium Channel sections and is used internally in communal areas and prisons, C40: is called the barefoot level and is used in swimming pool areas and access stairs to stages.
