ANTISKID AT WORK
Matagarup Bridge Stairs
Safety Stair Nosing Tread Plates
UV, Chemical & Corrosion Resistant, Low Maintenance
The stairs leading down from the western side of the Matagarup Bridge had some previously installed safety stair nosings that were coming loose and presenting a trip hazard. Antiskid were engaged to provide a suitable solution that would be long lasting, low maintenance and would enhance the existing design aesthetic for the entire bridge precinct.
Antiskid’s own range of Safety Stair Plates provided the ideal solution as they are chemical, UV and corrosion resistant. These plates provide greatly improved tread stability that exceeds the slip resistant requirements of Australian Standards.
Antiskid Safety Stair Plates are manufactured using high solids epoxy resins embedded with a range of high-quality friction aggregates onto steel based plates.
To ensure the design integrity and to tie in with the existing decorative stone surfacing on the bridge and stairs our design team came up with a specific complementary coating to our client’s specifications.
This unique design provided excellent contrast with the existing surface for visibility whilst retaining the uniformity of the stone surfacing that is such a highlight of the entire bridge precinct.
This is a solution that is going to provide enhanced safety and aesthetic appeal for many years to come.
