Dino Grip Anti-Slip Stair Nosings are manufactured from FRP (fiber reinforced plastic) / GRP (glass-fiber reinforced plastic) to provide an extremely tough and durable product. These types of products have been used in the most testing environments.

These Stair Nosings offer both a color differentiation and an anti-slip solution for any step edge. They are easy to install and can be fitted to almost any step without creating an additional trip hazard. Suitable for DIY installations.

Anti-Slip

Dino Grip Stair Nosings are pre-formed fibreglass Nosings that have an anti-slip gritted top to provide an excellent slip-resistant and hard wearing surface.

Durable

Dino Grip Stair Nosings are manufactured from FRP (fibre reinforced plastic) / GRP (glass-fibre reinforced plastic) to provide an extremely tough and durable product.

Corrosion Resistant

Dino Grip Stair Nosings are resistant to a wide range of chemicals and are perfectly suited for use even in the most extreme environments. Chemical resistance guides are available on request.

Do it Yourself Installation

Dino Grip Stair Nosings are designed for easy installation onto most step edges.  The fact that they are supplied as a finished product means that it can be walked on straight away after installation thus keeping disruption to a minimum.

This product is ideal for do it yourself installations and is simply adhered and mechanically fixed into place.

Aesthetics

Dino Grip Stair Nosings provides an instant aesthetically pleasing non-slip finish to any step edge, which also provides a highlighted edge.

Tapered Back Edge

To ensure a flush fit with the existing substrate and to eliminate the possibility of a trip hazard, the product has been designed with a tapered back edge.

High Visibility Colours

Dino Grip Stair Nosings - GRP are designed to provide a contrasting colour to step edges. 

HOW TO INSTALL - FRP STAIR NOSINGS

STEP 1 - PREPARATION & SAFETY

When installing Dino Grip FRP Stair Nosings we recommend that PPE (personal protective equipment) is worn. 

The stairs should be dry and clean and free from any loose and defective material. If there are areas that are damaged these should be repaired so that the surface is flat and even. Undertake a dry fit of the nosing to ensure that it sits flat and is the correct size.

 

STEP 2 - CUTTING STAIR NOSINGS

The Stair Nosings should be cut externally or in well ventilated areas. If any further trimming is required, we recommend the use of a jigsaw, preferably fitted with a tungsten carbide blade or hand grinder.

Dust residue can be disposed of using normal waste disposal methods. No special permissions or licenses are required.

 

STEP 3 - FIXINGS & TOOLS

Stainless Steel Screws

Dino Grip can supply standard flanged stainless steel screws, which therefore do not rust, stain or create a trip hazard. 

Color Headed Screws

Alternatively Dino Grip recommends our color headed flanged screws that are available in yellow / brown or buff to match the chosen stair nosing color. 

The advantage of using these particular screws is that they have a T-star head which makes for easier installation as they don’t round the heads off the screws during installation.

(For metal surfaces, we would recommend the use of rivet fixings)

Adhesive

While mechanical fixings are all that is required to secure the stair nosing, wherever possible, the application of an appropriate high strength gap filling adhesive will provide the following benefits:

A secondary fixing in the event that the mechanical fixings should fail.

A barrier against the "Drumming" noise that is created when fitting over the existing substrate. Apply a 1/4" (6mm) bead of high strength gap-filling adhesive around the periphery of the stair nosing and in horizontal stripes. Immediately press the stair nosing firmly to the substrate to ensure adequate transfer of adhesive. A firm bond will be achieved in about one hour under normal circumstances and conditions. Secure with the mechanical fixings and allow the adhesive sealant to cure before allowing excessive traffic to use the areas.

 

RECOMMENDED MECHANICAL FIXINGS

Based on a 3'3" Stair Nosing


Over Timber

No 20 x 2" x 11/2" – Flanged Stainless Steel Screws
Over Steel Plate
Flanged headed rivets

Over Concrete

20 x Brown Screw Anchor Plugs (or equivalent)
20 x Flanged Stainless Steel Screws

Over Open Mesh

Stainless steel or zinc plated saddle clips and domed head bolts suitable in length for the depth of the existing nosings.

 

STEP 4 - FITTING STAIR NOSINGS

Wooden Surfaces

To lay the Stair Nosings upon the surface and then use a 1/4" masonry drill bit to drill the top of the gritted surface in the desired fixing locations.  We would recommend that there are approximately 8 fixings per 3'3" of stair nosing; however this would depend on the usage and installation location.

Once the pilot holes have been drilled to then screw into position using the flanged stainless steel screws.

Additional adhesive can be used (if require) to add extra grip to the underneath the stair nosing.

Metal Surfaces

To lay the stair nosing upon the surface and then use a 1/4" masonry drill bit to drill the top of the gritted surface only in the desired fixing locations.  We would recommend that there are 8 fixings per 39" (1 meter) stair nosing.  Change the drill bit to a 3/16" 5.5mm metal drill bit.  Use drilling compound, and then proceed to drill the metal surface under the stair nosing  – the stair nosing can be kept into position during this process as you have already pre-drilled the stair nosing. 

Place rivet into the hole and use a rivet gun to fix into position.  Please ensure that all rivets have been compressed. 

Additional adhesive can be used (if required) to add extra grip to the underneath of the stair tread.

Concrete Surfaces

To lay the stair nosing upon the surface.  Use a 1/4" (6mm) masonry drill bit to drill the top of the gritted surface and into the underlying concrete sub-base only in the desired fixing locations.  We would recommend approximately 8 fixings per 3'3'' of stair nosing; however this would depend on the usage and installation location.  Remove the stair nosing and re-drill the concrete fixing points with an 5/15" (8mm) masonry drill bit. 

Introduce screw-anchors into the holes in the concrete surface and place the stair nosing into place and screw into position using the flanged stainless steel screws.

Additional adhesive can be used (if required) to add extra grip to the underneath of the stair nosing.

Additional Adhesive

While mechanical fixings are all that is required to secure the stair nosing, wherever possible, the application of an appropriate high strength gap filling adhesive will provide the following benefits:

A secondary fixing in the event that the mechanical fixings should fail.

A barrier against the "Drumming" noise that is created when fitting over the existing substrate. Apply a 1/4" (6mm) bead of high strength gap-filling adhesive around the periphery of the stair nosing and in horizontal stripes. Immediately press the stair nosing firmly to the substrate to ensure adequate transfer of adhesive. A firm bond will be achieved in about one hour under normal circumstances and conditions. Secure with the mechanical fixings and allow the adhesive sealant to cure before allowing excessive traffic to use the areas.

 

CLEANING GUIDE AND TIPS

Whilst Stair Nosings are extremely resilient to dirt and contaminations it will, as with most other things, become dirty.

Dry dirt and debris can easily be removed using a stiff brush and should be carried out on a regular basis.

If the Stair Nosings have been subjected to spillages or the dirt has become embedded, detergents can be used. It is always advisable to test any cleaning product on the Stair Nosings before starting the cleaning procedure. This can be done in an inconspicuous area of the installation.

Using the detergent, warm water and a suitable brush; scrub the affected areas until clean. This can then be washed off with clean water or by using a power washer.

Where circumstances allow, the Stair Nosings can be power washed without causing harm. Care should be taken when the stair nosing has been stuck down and / or edge sealed as very high pressure power washing or repeated power washing could cause damage to sealants and adhesives.

 

GENERAL ROUTINE MAINTENANCE

The security of the fixings / adhesives should be checked on a regular basis. Circumstances will vary, based upon the volume of foot traffic etc. but, as a guide, monthly inspections would be advisable in high trafficked areas
