With these tools specifically chosen for the anti-slip strip, you can provide the stair strip with beautiful round ends. You can also decide to make the strip narrower with a cutter, for example in the middle so that you get a strip of 14mm width and you thus save considerably on your purchase price. View our assembly video to see how you can use these our tools.
Non-slip rubber tape with round edges at the ends
If you want to keep the strip back from the edges, it is nice to provide the ends with a half-round edge. With the help of a metal cutter, you use a hammer to hit a semicircular side at the ends. Easy to do even if you are not super handy.
Press anti-slip well using a roller
You achieve the best result by pressing the self-adhesive trip with a pressure roller. If you are going to apply the strip, then it is good to process the strip at room temperature, the strip is a lot smoother and you can easily press on.
Use alcohol wipes for a clean and grease-free surface
To be sure that the surface is clean and free of grease, use some alcohol or these special alcohol cleaning wipes. A set is sufficient for a complete staircase, after cleaning, allow the steps to dry for 10 minutes and then apply the strip. Try to touch the adhesive layer with your hands as little as possible.
