Features and benefits:

  • Manufactured from a mineral-filled rubber elastomer to give high durability, abrasion and skid resistance.
  • Suitable for internal and external applications, with resilient floorcoverings.
  • Tiles have a ribbed pattern to Equality Act (2010) specifications to warn of a hazard requiring caution such as steps or ramps.


  • Should be installed as a hazard warning surface on the top and bottom approaches of a staircase to warn pedestrians that they are approaching a staircase.
  • The surface should be laid so that the bars run transversely across the direction of pedestrian travel and should be a contrasting colour to the surrounding area.
