Cleaning / Maintenance and Life Expectancy
GritPlate is a tough material that can withstand “aggressive” cleaning such as the use of stiff brushes and power-washers as detailed in our guide to the Cleaning & Maintenance of GritPlate.
With little maintenance GritPlate will retain its active anti-slip properties for 15 – 20 years depending on application. In addition, due to the high level UV-protective coating the sheet will not suffer from significant colour fade for at least 15 years.
