Altread is Safetytread’s range of Highly Non-Slip Insert Strips and Insert Discs. The insert strips & discs are available in various sizes and are filled with a Carborundum colour of your choice from our standard range.

The Insert Strips can be manufactured in either aluminium (our biggest seller) or in black PVC. The range is specifically designed for both internal and external use & can be used in concrete, terrazzo and timber steps or floors. They are also used frequently to improve the non-slip properties of timber decking and external walkways.

The larger Insert Strips E403 (PVC) and A104 (aluminium) satisfy the requirements of the DDA regulations and can be branded to your company’s requirements (please call for further details).

The products offer a quick, easy and aesthetically pleasing solution to any area where increased slip resistance is required. Typical installations to date include schools, railway platforms, hospitals, airports, retail stores, car parks, football stadiums etc.
