Ladder Rung Cover

SafeMate Ladder Rung Covers are designed and manufactured to provide the highest rated non-slip or antislip surface. Ladder Rung Covers are superior to nonslip tape as they will not tear, peel, or wear out.

It is important to have a foolproof nonslip surface on ladder rungs as falls from ladders are known to cause serious injuries and death. The most recent report published by Safe Work Australia, based on extensive studies carried out between 2003 – 2013, lists more than 3800 injuries and 37 deaths as those due to falls from ladder. Further, a majority of the deaths occurred when workers were climbing up or down the ladder. Sadly, many injuries and deaths have been due to falls from heights as low as one meter. A good nonslip surface, such as the one from LRCs, will be useful in preventing such mishaps and make ladders a safe piece of equipment.

Although nonslip tapes are being promoted as antislip solutions for ladder rungs, they can offer only a limited performance. Nonslip tapes can peel more easily as they are made of plastic material; the tapes do not adhere to the substrate for a long time, and do not sustain the tough industrial conditions. SafeMate’s antislip Ladder Rung Covers have been extensively employed in all industrial sectors for many years and are proven to withstand the harshest conditions.
