Case Studies of Anti-Slip Stair Treads and Noses
Case Study #1
MV Hebridean Isles

Smyth Composites were contacted by a crew member of MV Hebridean Isles who was responsible for a project to replace the old worn stair treads throughout the ship.He’d previously contacted several other companies but wasn’t impressed with the quality of their product or the prices offered!

After recieving samples of our Standard and Premier Stair Treads, and on hearing our very competitive prices, he decided to order enough Premier Treads to complete 2 stairways on a trial basis. After a successful installation and trial period enough treads were ordered to complete a futher 6 stairways.

Smyth Composites are delighted to have supplied these anti-slip stair treads to MV Hebridean Isles and look forward to supplying her sister ships and those of other companies going forward.

Offshore Installations

In order to meet the high standards of Health & Safety required for offshore installations operators are increasingly making use of GRP Anti-Slip products. Be it flat sheet for gangways, or for steps, stair treads with contrasting coloured noses – both offer excellent anti-slip properties. These are normally supplied with a medium grit finish but for areas where oil spills are likely coarse grit is utilised.
