Why Choose Riser Plates?
- Suitable for - restaurants & nightclubs, communal areas in social housing, offices, leisure centres, shopping malls, sporting venues and more.
- Quick and easy installation - simply glue into place with the supplied glue.
- Easy maintenance and easy to clean - just wipe clean with warm, soapy water. This is a major benefit against painted risers that need to be sanded and repainted regularly.
- Aesthetically pleasing - the riser plates cover the existing riser, thus complementing the look of the stairs and visually transforming existing stair cases.
- Easily combined with our Heavy Duty Anti Slip Stair Tread Covers.

How to Install
- You can install our Riser Plates easily and quickly with the adhesive glue supplied with the product.
- Ensure that the area is clean, dry and free from loose and friable material. Any “dished” or damaged surface areas should be patch repaired to provide a reasonably flat and consistent surface. You can patch repair concrete with our Step Edge Repair.
- Dry fit riser plates to ensure they fit freely and that they sit flat down on the surface. If required, can be trimmed on site to suit, ideally using a skill saw with a 4mm diamond blade or an angle grinder with a 1mm blade.
- Please ensure that goggles and gloves are worn at all times when any form of cutting is involved.
- Ensure you apply the riser plates before you fit any of the stair treads. Apply an approx. 6mm bead (this may need to be increased dependant on the substrate conditions) of the high strength gap filling adhesive around the periphery of the underside of the riser plates approx. 25mm in from the edges. Then, starting from the bottom left corner come up at an angle (approx. 200mm across) and then down at an angle, to create a ‘peak and a trough’, repeat this until you reach the end.
- Immediately press the panel firmly to the substrate to ensure adequate transfer of adhesive (depending on the size of the bead, this will elevate the sheet by approximately 1-1.5mm). A firm bond will be achieved in about one hour under normal circumstances and conditions.
- Drill two holes on each side of the stair tread cover, the first approximately 15mm in from the back edge and 15mm from the side. The second one should again be approximately 15mm from the side and approx. 10mm back from the contrasting nosing (55mm) For larger treads, it may be necessary to have further fixing points in the centre of the tread.
- If the substrate is in bad condition, screws are also recommended to fully secure the risers.
