Nights are drawing in and it’ll soon be getting dark before most people are home from work. In no time at all a simple trip to the shed or garage will be an expedition in itself – made worse if you’re transporting tools, bikes, garden furniture, toys, laundry or freezer foods. Add some rain, frost, ice or snow and it’s a wonder anyone makes it back in one piece!
Step one is to ensure the path you take is treated with Anti-Slip products. Whether it’s the front or back doorstep, a concrete path, paving slabs, wooden steps or decking, adding GRP Decking Strips, Stair Edging or even a Stair Tread Cover is quick, easy and economical and could be the difference between an evening spent in casualty or an evening spent comfortably at home!
Step two? We’d always recommend that the path you take is illuminated – if not from a window or streetlight then from an exterior light installed to help you find your way. A motion-sensor (PIR) version means it only comes on when you need it; solar-powered lights eliminate the need for getting an electrician involved. However, if lighting really isn’t possible or practical, you could consider our Illuminous Stair Nosing. Bright yellow during the day, when night falls it glows green and will help you and your visitors spot steps and stairs before falling over them.
