The GripStrips are a long lasting solution to a common problem. GripStrips are not a peel and stick product; they are made with plastic and are very durable. GripStrips are weather resistant and can be installed in virtually any weather conditions – you don’t need a dry day!
Are GripStrips easy to install?
The GripStrip is very easy to install. In less than one minute, you can have safer stairs. There’s no drilling required; all you need is a screw driver! Place the screws towards the outer edges of the pre-slotted holes and tighten them down. Then loosen each screw a quarter of a turn; this allows the wood to expand and contract with heat and cold weather without disturbing the strips. They are pre-punched and slotted for just this reason.
How do the GripStrips perform in ice and snow?
We always recommend you clear snow and salt any icy spots. The GripStrip will not melt ice or snow, but the cleats may help prevent slips and falls providing additional traction for the foot/shoe. Salting and shovelling will not damage or compromise the integrity of your strips.
Can you install GripStrips on concrete?
Designed for wood, GripStrips can be installed on concrete or metal with the appropriate screws (not included) to help provide safer footing. However, doing so may be more work because you have to pre-drill into the concrete/metal.
How long will installed GripStrips last?
For typical residential use, you can expect your GripStrips to last several years. There is a five year UV pack within the raw material to help avoid the fading and crumbling one might expect from plastic.
The GripStrip was installed in a lottery prize home that saw over 100,000 people descend the steps over a two week period. The GripStrip showed little to no wear and tear.
Periodically, inspect your strips for wear and damage and replace as needed.
Can I cut the GripStrip?
It is not recommended that you cut your GripStrips. Instead, we suggest you use our smaller 12” x 2” GripStrips to accommodate the smaller areas.
Why should I install GripStrips? Nobody has slipped yet.
You are one slip or fall away from a guest, colleague or family member seriously injuring themselves.
GripStrips can provide piece of mind that you are taking the proper precautions to avoid the worst case scenario.
Where can I buy GripStrips? I can’t find a retailer in my area that carries all the colors and sizes?
Our list of distributors continues to expand as our company continues to grow. All colors and sizes are available here on our website.
Why would I use anti slip tape?
We recognize that there are times where making holes into a surface isn't feasible yet the area gets slippery. Installing a high quality adhesion product is a great solution to help provide safer footing.
How long will the tape last?
We know that tape won't last as long as a plastic GripStrip, however, we have sourced a PVC based product that will be more durable than regular anti slip tape. When installed correctly the tape can last months or years depending on conditions i.e. interior vs. exterior, residential vs. commercial.
