Anti-Slip marine steps with Anti-Slip Step Covers for Steep Stairs
Anti-Slip Marine Steps

Anti-Slip step covers made especially for steep stairs

Seafaring vessels are known for having steep stairs along with hazardous conditions that require effective anti-slip treatment.

Safeguard products are known for preventing slips-and-falls in the most challenging environments on the planet.

So, when some of our marine customers mentioned that the grit on the vertical lip of our anti-slip step covers scraped the backs of their calf when descending steep stairs, we went to work designing the Calf-Saver ™.

As a result, the Calf-Saver™ option strikes a balance between gritted area and smooth area to stop slips AND scrapes!

Anti-Slip grit is strategically placed on step covers for steep stairs

Need anti-slip step covers for steep stairs? Try the Calf-Saver™.

Design challenge? Bring it! We love solving snags that stand between you and anti-slip safety.

Safeguard Hi-Traction Anti-Slip Step Covers for Offshore Drilling Units and Marine Vessels

Inside and out, your offshore vessel must be safe for the people aboard. That’s why regulations specify that indoor FRP grating must meet acceptable levels of flame spread and smoke generation/toxicity. Regulators have extended this requirement to include the use of IMO Compliant Anti-Slip Step Covers to prevent slips-and-falls on drilling rigs and offshore vessels.

Safeguard® Hi-Traction® Anti-Slip Covers for steps and walkways with steel base material have been tested to the ISO 5659-2 protocol and found to comply with the two applicable IMO Resolutions. Installed over compliant grating, your crew will not only be protected against slips-and-falls but also from flames and toxic smoke in case of a fire.

The two relevant IMO Resolutions:

  • Section 5.5.2: IMO Resolution A.653(16) – Recommendations on Improved Fire Test Procedures (Flame Spread)
  • Section 5.7.2: IMO Resolution MSC.61(67), Part 2 Smoke and Toxicity Test – IMO Fire Test Procedures Code (FTPC)

According to ABS Rules for Building and Classing Mobile Offshore Drilling Units (2017 – see p. 45), all FRP gratings fitted in enclosed areas must have low flame spread characteristics as proven by either an ASTM E-84 test result with flame spread rating of 20 or less or tested to IMO Resolution A.653(16).

Additionally, any FRP grating within accommodation, service, and control spaces must have low smoke characteristics as determined by the approved test procedures in IMO Resolution MSC.61(67), Part 2 Smoke and Toxicity Test- IMO Fire Test Procedures Code (FTPC). Low smoke characteristics refer to the amount of smoke generated when the material catches fire and also to the toxicity of the smoke. Safeguard’s IMO Compliant Anti-Slip Step Covers have been found to meet the standards.

Keep your crew as safe as possible – use Safeguard® Hi-Traction® Anti-Slip Covers with steel base material to prevent injuries on steps and walkways. Rest assured that workers in enclosed areas will have ample time to evacuate in case of fire.
