Safetytread News

Following the success of last year’s exhibition Safetytread are to exhibit at the Eco-build exhibition being held at the London Excel from 20th to 22nd March 2012.

Eco-build is the world's biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment, Safetytread's products are designed with the environment in mind. The aluminium is made from 100% recycled material and the product itself has been developed over the years to ensure it will out last other products of a similar nature that maybe available.

By installing Safetytread, you only install it once! This longevity means that Safetytread’s products are more environmentally friendly than other manufactured products made using rubber or PVC (Oil Based). Not only does the customer save on the cost of replacement treads but there are also fewer costs involved with labour, travel and time spent fitting replacements.

In addition, unlike rubber and PVC products, Carborundum will not have to be extruded every time an order is required.

Due to be launched at Eco-build is our new and exciting range named Intread. This range of profiles has been designed for general-purpose use on interior or exterior stairs. Whilst there are many profiles available in the market, Intread is the only product currently available which has been filled with Carborundum on the tread, instead of PVC or Rubber. This means that the life expectancy of the product far exceeds many alternative nosings available. Not only is Intread available in six of the most common industry standard profiles, the Intread range was developed with price in mind in addition, it competes strongly as a premium quality stair nosing. Intread products can be supplied in stock lengths for cutting on site, or we can cut to size at no extra cost. The Intread profiles can also be drilled on site and the screw heads covered with the supplied caps (if requested at extra cost) or we can pre-drill before dispatch for an additional 5% cost.

Due for launch at Eco-build is our phenomally bright new idea and product. GLO TREAD allows your interior/exterior stair nosing or insert strip/ disc, to illuminate for over 12 hours after being exposed to a light source for only 10 minutes and requires NO ELECTRICITY!

The ‘GLO TREAD’ product is a highly luminous material that also offers exceptional slip resistance properties. It can be used in any of our aluminium profiles and can be combined with Carborundum colours from our standard colour range. The life span of GLO TREAD has been designed, like our other profiles, to be long lasting and should function in a resin-epoxy matrix for 15+ years.

It offers outstanding Luminosity Exposure to 40 seconds of direct sunlight produces an afterglow of over 12 hrs. Exposure to Daylight for 10 min. produces an afterglow of over 12 hrs. Exposure to artificial light such as Halogen, Florescent etc. for approx. 10-30 minutes produces an afterglow of over 12 hrs.

Following a very succesfull exhibition at the Flooring Show Harrogate this year Safety Tread sales teams have been frantically contacting all visitors that requested samples and pricing.

As expected the launch of the Full Range of Intread profiles created the most interest, this full range can now be downloaded in a PDF file from the Intread page on our products list. The intread range is a highly desirable, high quality range of non slip stair nosings priced to compete with inferior products, with a new thought process involved where as instead of PVC infills for non-slip the profiles are actually filled with the excpetionally hard wearing Carborundum product that Safety Tread is renowned for using in all its other ranges
