The anti-slip solution

Sui Generis Safe Tread anti-slip flooring products are designed to be a quick and cost effective solution to improving safety in potential slip hazard areas.

Slip resistant

Safe Tread flooring products have an anti-slip surface ensuring outstanding slip resistance even in wet and oily conditions. They have consistently reduced slips and falls in industrial, commercial and public use.


All our anti-slip products incorporate a quartz gritted surface. This has good thermal shock resistance, corrosion resistance and stiffness making it the perfect product when wear and corrosion resistance are primary performance requirements.

Corrosion resistance

Our anti-slip products are manufactured with high quality fibreglass impregnated with isophthalic polyester or vinyl ester resins ensuring they are suitable for use in the harshest of chemical environments.

DDA and building regulations

Sui Generis Safe Tread products comprehensively fulfil the requirements specified in the UK Building Regulations Act and the final stage of the Disability Discrimination Act.

Your anti-slip flooring guide from Sui Generis

Anti-slip flooring consists of special anti-slip sheets that can be applied to existing flooring to improve its slip resistance. It's an essential safety feature for industrial areas, walkways and stairs to help prevent injuries to staff and slip-related accidents.

Safe Tread is the premier slip-resistant flooring from Sui Generis. It incorporates a quartz gritted surface – which means it remains slip resistant if liquids, ice or even oil is present.

The addition of isophthalic polyester and vinyl ester resins ensure Safe Tread flooring won't corrode in even the harshest chemical environments, making it ideal for industrial areas.

Slip-resistant products are available for floors, walkways and stairs and can be applied to almost any surface, making them an excellent alternative to replacement flooring.

What kinds of surfaces need anti-slip flooring?

With a significant number of injuries to workers and members of the public attributed to slip-related accidents, slip-resistant flooring is strongly recommended for a variety of both industrial and public-access areas. These can include:

  • Floors • Walkways • Platforms • Stairs • Stair noses • Driveways • Ramps.

  • "Sui Generis' anti-slip decking strips are a real boon to our work. We have used the anti-slip strips on stiles and bridges with excellent results.

    One of the considerable benefits of your GRP strips is that they are lightweight, easy to apply and can even be fitted in very wet and muddy conditions and can be walked on immediately – so are perfect for us."
