I don't have any experience with renovations in and around the house. Can I apply this stip on my own without any help?
The non-slip adhesive strip is very easy to apply. You don't need any experience. Always make sure the surface is properly cleaned, with a bit of alcohol. Let it dry. On the back of the strip is a special applied gluelayer, which makes sure the strip sticks to the treads in a perfect way. When you start to apply the strip on your treads, it is very important you remove the protective film bit by bit. More information about the application you can see in our application manual or check if your stairs is suited for this stair strip.

Yes, we have an application video. In five easy steps we show you how to apply the strip. Anyone can do it!
Of what kind of material is the strip made?
The non-slip adhesive tape is made of a sustainable pvc/rubber plastic. Because of this it has a high abriasion resistance for a long lifespan. The width of the strip with the special gluelayer makes sure the strip will never curl or move.
What is the expected lifespan for this non-slip adhesive strip?
The strip is a very new product and it is specially designed for stairs. Because of this the exact lifespan is not known yet or difficult to say exactly, but tests for over a couple of years of intens use show very good results. The expectation is that with a normal household use, the strip will last for about 8-10 years.
What can I use to clean the strip?
This anti slip adhesive stair tape is very easy to clean with a normal household cleaning solution and a bit of water.
This strip, can it be used on every stairs?
The non-slip adhesive stair strip can be used on any stairs. It is suitable for painted stairs, renovated stairs, concrete or marble stairs. When the surface is smooth and straight, it is perfectly fine to apply this product.
Is it possible to get, for example, 10 meters in one part?
Of course. We sell the strip in measures of 5 meters, but if you order two pieces of 5 meter, we will deliver it to you in one piece of 10 meters. We do this automatically, no need to extra mention this when you place your order.
Why does the non-slip-adhesive strip have a RAL-color code?
This is an international color code, big advantage of this is that every paintstore will have the color or can mix it for you. Check out the non-slip strips colors. We realized that especially with a product like this it is not easy to order online and not to know exactly how the color will turn out. Because you can only see it on the pictures you have to guess if the color is right for you. In this case you do not have to worry, because of the RAL-code you will get exactly the color that you need.
Before purchasing a strip you could go to a paintstore and ask for a color sample to besure.
The non-slip adhesive strip, can I use it outside aswell?
Unfortunately the strip is not suitable for outside use. Because the glue film is not resistent against moisture, it will not have a long lifespan. We cannot garantee for the strip to give the same safe effect as with indoor use, so this is why we do not recommend using it outside.
If you do want to try it to use outside, make sure the surface is properly clean and equal and has no damages what so ever.
How many meters do I need for one stairs?
For a standard house stairs, one roll of 15 meters is enough for one stairs. If you only want to apply it on the part where you place your feet, you don't need more then 80cm per tread.
How do I apply the anti-slip stair strip?
The non-slip strip with special glue tape is very easy to apply. First you cut the strip in the right sizes. Put the strips in roomtemperature for easy application. Make sure the treads are properly cleaned, prefered with a bit of alcohol. Mark the stairs with some pencil lines, so you can apply the strip in one straight line. Press the strip onto the treads.
