Materials – Durable Synthetic Rubber (Black BS4255 Class C1), classified as non-hazardous with aluminium based Visible Strips as described below:

Visible Strips

  • Reflective / Photo Luminescent – alternating 25 cm sections.
  • Reflective sections illuminate the stage edge from reflected overhead lighting.
  • Photo Luminescent sections absorb light energy from overhead lighting and provide discreet and effective illumination during dark scenes
  • Non-Reflective White – 1m sections.
  • Bright white strips provide an effective solution to visible edge indication where overhead lighting is limited – such as schools and village halls.
  • Construction – Visible strips are constructed from aluminium, layered with Reflective or Non-Reflective materials and finished with a “Scuff Resistant” coating which protects the strips and provides for easy cleaning.
