Weather events, be it rain, snow or frost, icing increase the risk of injury on slippery steps, porch. To avoid such unpleasant situations, use an anti-slip coating for steps on the street.
A number of materials are presented on the building materials market, from which such coatings are made.
Anti-slip coatings are also distinguished by the method of laying:
7 - 1.2 cm;
This is one of the most popular materials for protecting porch and steps. Possesses frost resistance, durability, environmental friendliness. The coating is light in weight, but at the same time durable.
It is made in the form of rugs, L-shaped corners, rolls.
Installation of the material is not difficult and does not require special skills:
For this, the material is cut into elements that correspond to the size of each step. The material is laid on the surface and fixed with
Not less popular type of coating, but unlike rubber material, more budgetary. It has high wear resistance, frost resistance, does not absorb moisture, is easy to install, and, importantly, it is quite simple to replace it if necessary.
Rubber covering for steps is made:
In case of wear, the belt is replaced with a new one, and the aluminum structure is retained. This type of coating is used in places of increased load and high permeability;
Rolls with EPDM chips have a pleasant appearance due to the wide color range of the chips themselves, do not emit harmful fumes, and are resistant to wear. The thickness of such a coating for outdoor stair treads is 6 mm, the length of the rolls, as a rule, is 10 m. Color execution in 9 variants.
Zig-zag flooring has excellent sound insulation. The coating thickness is 5 mm.
The length of the rolls is 10 or 15 m. The color range is presented in 6 colors.
Rolls with a spiral-twisted structure is a weave of vinyl fibers, which gives an excellent anti-slip effect. Good moisture permeability and easy cleaning. Such rolls have the following dimensions: thickness 10 - 15 mm, width - 120 cm, length - 12 m.
The material is made in in the form of tapes and rugs on a self-adhesive base with the use of abrasive particles.
There are three types of grit size:
Abrasive coatings have a number of advantages:
The quality of the abrasive belt is easy to check. It is enough to try to tear the tape with your hands. If the material breaks, you should look for another manufacturer of this material.
When choosing an anti-slip coating for outdoor steps made of abrasive material, you should also pay attention to the backing, which protects the adhesive base from drying out. There are two types of backing: paper and synthetic (organosilicon substitute).
When choosing a substrate using paper, pay attention to the date of issue. The longer the shelf life, the lower the adhesive properties of the material. For example, after six months of storage, the adhesive ability is lost by 30 - 50%. A synthetic substitute has a shelf life of 2 years without losing the original properties of the cool substance.
Often, a non-slip cover for outdoor steps is used as an embedded profile and is a combination component.
They are made in the form of corners and overlays. They can have one or two cells for a rubber insert. Installation of aluminum profiles is carried out by fastening to the base of stairs, steps with self-tapping screws, screws.
Advantages of the aluminum profile:
The length of the corner profiles with a rubber insert is 2.
5 m, without rubber inserts - 1.8 m. The aluminum plates also have a corresponding length - with a rubber insert 2.5 m, without it - 1 , 8 m
This cover is a polymer material and combines the properties of rubber and thermoplastic. The advantage of the material is long-term operation, environmental resistance, non-toxicity, ease of installation.
It is enough to wipe the surface on which the material will be laid with a damp cloth. One side of the thermoplastic coating is smooth and well glued to the steps, the outside is corrugated with a non-slip effect.
Laying is used on bases of any material: marble, granite, wood. The service life of such a coating is not limited. The material is presented in a wide color palette, up to colorless (transparent).
The thickness of this material is 1.5 mm.
In practice, a liquid anti-slip coating is often used. The material is suitable for finishing large areas, such as sports grounds, large stairways, running tracks, etc. The material is made from small quartz-granite particles.
Can be applied to asphalt, concrete, marble, wood, metal. The color scheme will satisfy even the most demanding consumer.
Recommended laying thickness 2.5 mm. Drying time ranges from 50 minutes to 120 minutes.
This is the simplest material for finishing steps, in terms of styling, besides, it is easy to care for.
