I have a step down from a stoop outside my front door. I want to mark
it for visibility, especially in dim light. (I'll be putting up
lights, but that'll still be a lot less than sunlight.)
What's the best way to mark it? (This is hard to google because words
like "step" and "safety" get too many extraneous hits.) Upper? Lower?
Riser? Paint? Color?
I know from one experience that this can be tricky. I have a similar
step inside, covered by turquoise (sort of) carpet. I put a throw rug
on the upper part. Made it quite visible, yet I tripped every time I
went down. Moved the throw to the lower, and it works great. I still
haven't figured out why.
I painted a 2 inch step edge brite white because it was a trip hazard,
it worked great. I used rust oleum white it worked fine. glass beads
would make it briter but probably overkill'
later the sewer authority tore up my driveway and sidewalk which
elminated that step.
whoever designed it had to be nuts, it was a real hazard
as was a 1 inch step at a school, I fell hard all the other steps were
regular height. I went down hard carrying a piece of equiptement. they
painted it safety yellow, and got repainted recently. I was in that
building not long ago
use tape and \paint one inch top and one inch edge, end of problem
The local farm supply store had some here. Maybe a hardware store
in the automotive section. I don't know if places like NAPA would have it.
I think I bought some at Walmart when I needed it. Maybe a truck stop?
I don't know how it would stick to concrete. You could always use
silicone to make it stick.
