Dino Grip Non-Slip Stair Treads/Anti-Slip Stair Treads are a quick and easy long term solution for slippery steps. They are a prefabricated FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) / GRP (Glass-fiber Reinforced Plastic) product, which provides full coverage to the whole stair, with a contrasting colored nosing. Our Treads can be installed on almost all types of stair substrates; including a traditional steel checker plate, which is notoriously slippery when wet whilst offering extreme slip resistance.
Our Stair Treads can also be used over steps that suffer from surface deterioration. These Stair Treads have been used successfully in many applications and in many weather conditions – always retaining their grip for long periods of time*.
Non-Slip Stair Treads are available in three standard sizes.
- 8ft x 13.5″ x 2″
- 4ft x 13.5″ x 2″
- 2ft x 13.5″ x 2″

Dino Grip Stair Treads are manufactured from FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) / GRP (Glass-fiber Reinforced Plastic) to provide an extremely tough and durable product.
Dino Grip Stair Treads are pre-formed fiberglass treads that have a non-slip gritted top to provide a slip-resistant and hard-wearing surface. Dino Grip Non-Slip products may assist in meeting ADA requirements.
DO IT YOURSELF INSTALLATION
The versatility of Dino Grip Stair Treads allows it to be applied to almost any surface such as concrete, steel, and wood. These Stair Treads are supplied as a finished product, which means that they can be walked on immediately after installation. Refer to our Install Guide in the next tab for further details.
When installing Dino Grip Stair Treads, we recommend that PPE (personal protective equipment) be worn.
CUTTING THE STAIR TREADS
If you need to cut the Stair Treads to size during your installation, we recommend that a suitable dust mask with protective safety goggles and gloves are worn. The Stair Treads should be cut outside or in a well-ventilated area. If using a circular saw or angle grinder, use a standard carbon or diamond blade when cutting them to size.
Dust residue can be disposed of using normal waste disposal methods. No special permissions or licenses are required.
INSTALLATION OF STAIR TREADS
During the installation of Dino Grip Stair Treads we recommend that safety gloves and glasses are worn while screwing the Stair Treads into place.
Dino Grip recommends that the surface is first swept and cleaned, ensuring that the surface is suitable to receive the Stair Treads.
FIXING TO WOODEN SURFACES
Lay the Stair Tread upon the surface and then use a 7/32″ masonry drill bit to drill the top of the gritted surface only in the desired anchoring locations. We would recommend that six anchors (screws or rivets) are put in place every foot – 3 along the front edge (just behind the colored nosing) and 3 along the back edge.
Then screw into position using the Flat Star Head stainless steel.
Additional adhesive can be used on the back of the Stair Treads prior to screwing into position (if required) to add extra grip to the bottom of the Stair Tread. Adhesive is available for purchase on our website.
FIXING TO METAL SURFACES
Lay the Stair Tread 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. Change the drill bit to a 1/4″ metal drill bit. Use drilling compound, then proceed to drill the metal surface under the Stair Tread (the Stair Treads can be kept in position during this process as you have already pre-drilled the Stair Tread).
Place rivets into each hole and use a rivet gun to fix into position. Please ensure that all rivets have been compressed.
Additional adhesive can be used to the back of the Stair Treads prior to fixing in position (if required) to add extra grip to the bottom of the Stair Tread.
FIXING TO CONCRETE SURFACES
Lay the Stair Tread upon the surface and then use a 1/4″ masonry drill bit to drill the top of the gritted surface and into the underlying concrete sub-base only in the desired fixing locations. Remove the Stair Tread and re-drill the concrete anchor holes with an 5/16″ masonry drill bit.
Insert plastic anchors into the holes in the concrete surface and replace the Stair Tread into place.
Then screw into position using the Flat Star Head stainless steel screws.
Additional adhesive can be used on the back of the Stair Tread prior to screwing into position (if required) to add extra grip to the bottom of the Stair Treads.
While mechanical anchors are all that is required to secure the Stair Treads, wherever possible, the application of an appropriate high strength gap filling adhesive will provide the following benefits:
– A secondary bond in the event that the fasteners should fail.
– A barrier against the “Drumming” noise that is created when fitting a cover over the existing substrate.
Apply a 1/4″ bead of high strength gap-filling adhesive around the periphery of the Stair Tread and in horizontal stripes at approximately 8″ apart. Immediately press the Stair Tread firmly to the substrate to ensure adequate transfer of adhesive. A firm bond will be achieved in about one hour under normal conditions. Secure with the screws or rivets and allow the adhesive sealant to cure before allowing excessive traffic to use the areas.

CLEANING GUIDE AND TIPS
While Stair Treads are extremely resilient to dirt and other contaminants, it will, as with most other things, become dirty.
Dry dirt and debris can easily be removed using a stiff brush and should be done so on a regular basis.
If the Stair Treads have been subjected to spillages or the dirt has become embedded, detergents can be used. It is always advised to test any cleaning product on the Stair Treads 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. The excess water can be removed using a wet/dry vacuum cleaner or power washer.
Where circumstances allow, the Stair Treads can be power washed without causing harm. Care should be taken when the Stair Treads have been glued down and / or edge is 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 mechanical anchors / 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 are advised in high traffic areas.
