New Grit-Coated Fiberglass Step Covers And Walkways From Martinson-Nicholls


Martinson-Nicholls new fiberglass step covers and walkways provide durable, lightweight slip-resistance on stairs, inclines, ramps and floors. The easy to install and cost-effective covers come in three different anti-slip grit options.

Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) - Featuring a proprietary coating of mineral abrasive epoxy grit, Martinson-Nicholls' new fiberglass step covers and walkways provide a lightweight and durable anti-slip surface. With three coating options, heavy, medium or fine, our covers may be applied to any structurally sound surface including steps, inclines, floors, and ramps. These fiberglass covers are a cost-effective way to provide slip-resistant footing to existing surfaces, and combine low maintenance with long service life.

According to Dan Ruminski, president of Martinson-Nicholls, "These fiberglass step and ramp covers are an easy and economical way to improve the safety of stairs, ramps and inclined walkways."

The mineral abrasive epoxy grit is bonded to 0.125" thick thermoset polyester, fiber-reinforced polymer panels. These fiberglass step covers and panels are fire-retardant and easy to maintain. The epoxy grit surface may be swept to loosen and remove dirt, and cleaned with a general-purpose industrial floor cleaner and bristle brush. The step covers and walkway panels may also be pressure washed with up to 1000 psi.

The step covers come in lengths up to 12 feet in three standard sizes: 

  • 11.75" depth with 2" nosing
  • 9" depth with 1" nosing
  • 3" depth with 1" nosing

They are offered in single color treads of yellow or black, or a two-color version with a yellow nose and black back.

The fiberglass flat panels for walkways and ramps come in yellow or black, with standard sizes of 30" x 96" and 48" x 96". Additional sizes can also be provided.

Typical applications include:

  • Hotels and motels
  • Restaurants
  • Stairways
  • Stadiums
  • Food processing plants
  • Chemical plants
  • Water and wastewater treatment facilities
  • Water parks
