Hi-Traction Ladder Rung Covers
Available from Safeguard Technology Inc.
Patented SAFEGUARD® Covers for ladder rungs provide confident antislip protection right where it is needed most.
Typical ladder rungs, especially those made from bar stock, are notorious for slip problems, especially in wet and oily environments. This is one of the most dangerous locations for any worker as the foot surface area is small and needs to have excellent traction.
To solve this problem, Safeguard manufactures two styles of slip resistant Ladder Rung Cover – “channel shaped” and “half-round”, both of which fit easily over the rung. The “half-round” cover is available in pultruded FRP (fiberglass) only. Both styles can be installed using adhesive or mechanical fasteners (over hollow rungs). Metal Ladder Rung Covers can be tack welded to metal rungs.
SAFEGUARD® Ladder Rung Covers are proven performers in the world’s toughest environments, on offshore drilling platforms, marine vessels, in greasy food processing facilities, dusty ceramic plants, automotive stamping operations, and power generation facilities.
The Covers provide superior traction and long lasting performance, and significantly enhance ladder safety. They are resistant to many chemicals, corrosion, and the harsh abuse of boot traffic up and down the ladder.
SAFEGUARD® Ladder Rung Covers are ideal in either indoor or outdoor use, in all types of harsh weather or dangerous conditions.
