Safeguard Technology, leading innovator of anti-slip solutions, offers Direct Gritting to prefabricated parts. With Direct Gritting, customers supply their parts (or an engineered drawing for fabrication) and Safeguard applies it’s Hi-Traction anti-slip surface directly to the specified area. Direct Gritting helps reduce installation time, weight and cost. It is a desirable alternative when aesthetics are important or when mechanical fasteners are not an option (either structurally or due to unsightly screw heads).

Direct Gritting is available in all of Safeguard’s standard and premium colors, as well as Photoluminescent “Glow-in-the-Dark” and custom color matches. With Direct Gritting, customers can combine colors for a two-tone configuration; incorporate custom messaging, logos and PPE (personal protective equipment) symbols; and choose from a variety of grit levels to meet their application requirements.

Direct Gritting is ideal for industrial and transportation applications and can be applied to many surfaces, including:

  • Work truck steps
  • Bus trim parts
  • Bus ramps
  • Ladder rungs
  • Metal stair treads
  • Diamond plate

Safeguard has been successfully providing Direct Gritting services since its inception in 1992. Safeguard manufactures a full-line of superior safety products, including prefabricated anti-slip safety covers for steps, walkways and ladder rungs. Customizable levels of coarseness, sizes, and colors, glow-in-the-dark features, as well as safety messages and logo designs, are available on all Safeguard products.
