Anti-slip GRP Walkway Covers

Walkways are often large areas where there is a risk of horizontal slipping. We define corridors, hallways, lobbies, access roads, escape routes or other thoroughfares as typical walkways.

Walkways can quickly become a risk area due to clutter or water, dirt, grease, oil etc. building up – leading to potential slips, trips and falls. It is important to identify and address these hazards. 

We are experts in developing safe walkway solutions. Our anti-slip walkway covers are made from high-quality glass fiber with aluminum oxide grit fragments encapsulated into the surface. This guarantees optimal friction in all conditions. 

In addition, our non-slip walkway covers are designed to enhance visual safety and important signs can be incorporated into the anti slip walkway product. Often, warnings or instructions on walls are overlooked. However, people look where they go, and messages can therefore effectively be printed onto the floor with a non-slip coating either as pictogram or text.

What are the benefits?

Real Safety walkway covers offer a range of key benefits, including:

  • Quick solution – Our solution is ready to use and will retrofit onto existing surfaces.
  • Reduced risk of accidents – By installing our anti-slip walkway covers, companies can significantly reduce the risk of slips, trips and falls accidents.
  • Designed to enhance visual safety – Our yellow walkway covers can increase visual safety instantly. Pictograms or text can also be embedded into the walkway cover.
  • Cost-effective solution – GRP walkway covers can be installed in all weather conditions – all year round on i.e. marine decks or any area which will benefit from an anti slip walkway product.
  • Compliance with safety – GRP walkway covers can help companies regulations and avoid costly fines or legal actions. 

Slip and trip accidents can be costly, but we can help you to make i.e. marine decks or other walkways as visible and slip-proof as possible.

Where do you use walkway covers?

Our GRP non-slip walkway covers can be used in a variety of settings where slip and fall accidents can occur to provide a safe walking surface and reduce the risk of injury. 

We offer two types of grid: Extra Coarse for offshore / heavy industrial applications and Coarse for industrial and commercial applications.

Walkway cover application
  • Offshore sites 
  • Marine environments 
  • Manufacturing facilities
  • Food and Pharma 
  • Residential areas 
  • Commercial settings
  • Public and private areas
Walkway covers for steel, wooden and concrete steps

Our walkway non slip covers can be installed on a variety of surfaces including: 

  • Steel – Can be installed on metal surfaces, such as stairs, catwalks, and grating to improve safety 
  • Concrete – It can be installed on concrete surfaces such as floors, steps, ramps and platforms 
  • Wood – Can also be installed on wooden surfaces such as decks, docks, and walkways, to provide slip-resistant protection 
  • Can be installed on any floor type near machinery

When choosing GRP anti slip walkway covers for steel, wooden or concrete areas, it is important to also consider the size and texture of the covers as well as the level of slip-resistance they provide. Visit our YouTube Channel to see the installation video of our landing and walkway covers or contact us for more information.

Reducing accidents – statistics

Non slip grp walkway covers are important especially in work places because they help prevent slip, trip, and fall accidents, which are a significant cause of workplace injuries. 

According to the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work ( EU-OSHA), slips, trips, and falls are a leading cause of workplace accidents and injuries in Europe. They estimated that 25% of all workplace accidents in Europe are due to slips, trips and falls, and that these accidents cost the European economy billions of euros each year in lost productivity and medical expenses.

If a company, organisation or institution fail to implement adequate safety measures on their walkways, they may face a range of consequences, including: 

  • Legal liabilities 
  • Increase in workplace injuries
  • Damage to company reputation 
  • Decreased productivity

Frequently Asked Questions

If you can´t find the answer you are looking for here, please contact us.

How do I install Walkway covers?

Please view our installation guide for Walkway Covers here.

Our covers are non-load bearing, and are pre-fabricated for quick and easy installation over existing substrates including concrete, metal, fibreglass, steel and composite grating, wood and tile.

Depending on the base material of construction and surface to be covered, mechanical fasteners, urethane adhesive, PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) and tack-welding can be used. 

Pre-drilling holes are available to aid in the process. 

How do I maintain and clean anti-slip walkway covers?

Regular cleaning and maintenance of anti-slip walkways can help ensure their effectiveness and reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents. It is important to follow our maintenance and cleaning guide to avoid damaging the surface of the covers. 

How long do GRP walkway covers last?

A minimum of ten years.

How much does a walkway cover cost?

It depends on the size of the cover needed, whether it comes with various colours and / or text embedded – and finally delivery costs. Contact us today! We would be more than happy to quote a price for you.

Is it a sustainable product?

GRP walkway covers are a sustainable option that can help to reduce environmental impact while providing a safe and durable solution for industrial walkways, bridges and other applications. They are designed to be durable and long-lasting with a lifespan of up to 20 years or more with low maintenance, which reduces the need for frequent replacement and helps minimise waste. 

The reusability of our GRP walkway covers also makes them an energy efficient and sustainable solution for improving safety in a variety of settings. 

Why are anti-slip walkway covers important?

They instantly improve safety and visibility wherever they are installed by improving slip safety underfoot. 

What materials are used to make walkway covers?

All of our GRP Walkway Covers are strong, durable materials made from high-quality glass fibre.

It is made from a combination of thermosetting resins and continuous glass fibres forming a composite material that is strong, durable and resistant to corrosion, chemicals and UV radiation. 

We have encapsulated aluminum oxide grits into the surface of the fibreglass for optimal friction in all conditions. 

  • Safety yellow Ral 1003 (or any colour combination). 
  • Grit Size: Mesh 10 (offshore) Mesh 20 ( industrial) 
  • Real Safety solutions slip resistant levels are all classified with the highest scores of R13. DIN 51130 R-Value slipperiness classification ratings range from R9 – R13.

Regular cleaning and maintenance of anti-slip walkways can help ensure their effectiveness and reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents. 

View our FRP-Walkway-Cover-Datasheet for more technical information. 

How do I choose the right walkway cover?

Selecting the right GRP walkway covers can ensure effective slip-resistant protection and long-term durability. Here are some elements to consider: 

  • Identifying the type of environment 
  • What anti-slip properties should it have
  • Determining the size and shape
  • Assessment of the traffic volume 
  • Assessment of the load capacity requirements
  • Should they be highly visible
  • Installation method
  • Costs

For offshore and heavy industrial applications we recommend Extra Coarse grit size mesh 10. For industrial and commercial applications we recommend Coarse grit size mesh 20.

When choosing the grid choice of your walkway covers, consider the environment in which they will be applied, the level of resistance required, the expected traffic and chemicals or other fluid it will be exposed to. 

We will also provide you with consultation, extensive technical information, drawings etc. to ensure that you develop the right solution.
