Martinson-Nicholls announced that their newly expanded line of anti-slip grit tape has been selected by Johsonite of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, for its rubber and vinyl stair treads. The precision-cut mineral tape fits Johnsonite's tread grooves, providing an anti-slip surface near the stair nose. With additional standard sizes, the numerous tape color options allow selection of grit tapes that match the color of the stair treads, or contrast them when high visibility is desired.

According to Martinson-Nicholls president Dan Ruminski, "The mineral embedded pressure sensitive tape can be used on new OEM treads, or field-installed as a replacement on existing stair treads. The numerous colors include a tape that absorbs light and will glow for up to 8 hours for added safety. When back-up lighting systems fail in emergencies the treads will illuminate to exit routes."

The grit tapes come in standard rolls of one inch by sixty feet and two inches by sixty feet as well as custom widths up to 24 inches. If the tape ever wears out after many years of service, the old tape can be easily removed and replaced without replacing or removing the entire tread. The anti-slip tape also meets A.D.A. requirements for the stair tread industry. Martinson-Nicholls can create additional custom colors for OEM customers.

Designed to provide slip resistant footing even on wet steps, the new Grit Tape uses a durable, pressure-sensitive backing, making it easy to just peel and stick the anti-slip tape to new or renovated stair treads. The ability to use the new Grit Tape on existing stair tread installations was a key feature for Johnsonite and their dealers.
