It can be used as a one coat finish for most applications, or a second coat can be applied for busier areas. The tough, acrylic paint comes with special anti-slip particles which help you to achieve an even, attractive surface.

Instructions for use


If you’ve got a step or ramp which needs brightening up but at the same time making it safer to walk on, then Step and Ramp Paint scores on both counts. It not only looks good but it is an anti slip paint that will help prevent dangerous slips and trips. The ‘secret’ ingredient is a light aggregate which is the same density as the paint, providing an evenly textured finish.

It has very good ultra-violet light resistance which will prevent fading if used outdoors.

Prepare It

The surface to be painted should be clean and dry, although a little bit of dampness isn’t a problem. If there is oil, grease or other contaminants then treat it first with PaintPeople™ Oil & Grease Remover. If your floor has been painted before, make sure the old paint is not flaking. It’s best to lightly abrade it, as this will remove any weak areas and provide a slightly rough surface for Step and Ramp Paint to bond to.

Apply It

Add the tin of aggregate and give it a good stir. Apply Step and Ramp Paint with a roller, (or a radiator roller or brush if this is easier on steps). Only one coat is normally needed, but you may need a second on porous or rough surfaces, or if applying to heavily used areas. If so, it can normally be applied after 6 hours depending on drying conditions. Do not apply the paint too thickly. The texture develops as the paint dries, so don’t worry if it isn’t immediately apparent. If you are using Step and Ramp Paint outside, choose a dry day when rain is not forecast. Don’t apply if the temperature falls below 10°C or goes above 30°C.

Dry It

Within 24 hours the painted area can be used for light traffic and ready for full use after 48 hours, (these times will be extended when the weather is cold, damp or humid).

Cover It

Covers approximately 8-10m² per 2.5 litres per coat.

What else do I need to know?


Only use on well drained surfaces and do not apply in areas that are normally under water, as this could actually mean the product may contribute to a slip hazard rather than prevent one.

Do not overfill the crevices in asphalt or tarmac, as this will not only extend drying times, but can reduce the drainage capability of the surface which may cause a slip hazard in the wet. This will also reduce the coverage dramatically.

Store It

The shelf life is at least one year when unopened. Do not allow to freeze.
