1. Surface Preparation
Clean the area of the surface to be repaired. Brush away any loose stone or debris from the area. For installation you will need:
- Step Nosing
- Suitable self tapping screws
- Sealant gun and adhesive
2. Dry Fit
Place the step nosing on the step, to ensure they fit freely, and that they sit flat on the surface. Smooth out and remove any protuding elements i.e. screws etc.
3. Application Of The Adhesive
Apply adhesive around the edges, then create a zig-zag across the base and add some extra adhesive in between the zig-zags.
4. Immediately Place The Panel In Place
Immediately press the panel firmly to the substrate to ensure adequate transfer of adhesive.
5. Drill Two Holes At Each Side
Drill to holes on each side of the SlipGrip Stair Tread Cover, to lock the position. Ensure you are using an appropriate drill bit and drill.
6. Position Self Tapping Screws
Position the self tapping screws, then drill into place.
7. Fixing It In Place
If fitting to metal substrate, use self-tapping screws. There is no need to counter sink the screw holes since the screw can be tightened so that it beds into the gritted surface, making it flush with the wearing surface.
8. Fixing The Step Nosing
As before position the self tapping screws with a hammer, then drill / screw into place.
9. Remove Any Dust
Using clean water, brush over the screws to remove any dust.
Use the correct drill and drill bits, and remove any protruding debris prior to laying the step nosing.
