Description

Firm-Step GRP Landing Covers are the perfect addition for making landings, balconies and walkways safe underfoot. They are specially designed to fit on top of your staircase and when combined with our Heavy Duty GRP Step Covers you'll keep both visitors and employees safe for the long run. Our Landing Covers are made from fibreglass materials, so they will not rot, twist or warp.

Recommended areas of use

  • Landings, balconies and walkways.
  • Our stone landing cover is also suitable for areas where looks are important, such a heritage sites, golf clubs and other commercial venues.
  • Suitable for heavily trafficked areas.
  • Suitable for wood, concrete and metal

Features

  • Heavy duty - these landing covers are produced using ExtremeCore grit, which is twice as hard wearing as the industry standard quartz, thus guaranteeing many more years of use than the standard landing cover.
  • Their 55mm contrasting nosing also makes them Building Regulation and Disability Discrimination Act compliant.
  • Simple to install
  • Available in a variety of sizes:
    Widths: 1200mm or 2400mm. We also offer a free cut to size service, please give us our Technical team a call on 01483 418 418 to arrange this

How to Install

 

Preparation

Ensure that the area is clean, dry and free from loose and friable material. Any “dished” or damaged surface areas should be patch repaired to provide a reasonably flat and consistent surface. You can patch repair concrete with our Concrex Carbon Fibre.

Dry fit landing covers to ensure they fit freely and that they sit flat down on the surface. If required, the covers can be trimmed on site to suit, ideally using a skill saw with a 4mm diamond blade or an angle grinder with a 1mm blade.

Please ensure that goggles and gloves are worn at all times when any form of cutting is involved.

 

Fixing Kit Application

Apply an approx. 6mm bead (this may need to be increased dependent on the substrate conditions) of the high strength gap filling adhesive around the periphery of the underside of the stair tread cover section of the landing cover approx. 25mm in from the edges. Then, do the same with the flat sheet section of the landing cover.

Then, starting from the bottom left corner of the stair tread section, come up at an angle (approx. 200mm across) and then down at an angle, to create a ‘peak and a trough’, repeat this until you reach the end. Do the same for the flat sheet section of the landing cover - create a peak and trough adhesion across the sheet.

Immediately press the landing cover firmly to the substrate to ensure adequate transfer of adhesive (depending on the size of the bead, this will elevate the sheet by approximately 1-1.5mm). A firm bond will be achieved in about one hour under normal circumstances and conditions.

Drill holes 15mm in from all edges at no more than 300mm apart from the centres. Depending on the width of the panels it may be necessary to provide fixing points at 600mm centres down the middle of the panels. As substrates vary considerably, additional fixings may be required to fix the panels down. If fixing down two pieces of landing covers that is constrained by sides (i.e. a ramp with wall on either side) a 5mm expansion gap should be considered between the two or more sheets. This gap can be filled with a standard high modulus mastic.

Firm-Step GRP Landing Covers can come with pre-drilled holes for which there is a surplus. If you require holes in a certain place, please call 01483 418 418.
