Step safety

madpenguinmadpenguin Isle of WightPosts: 2,448
I have a new gate and a step behind it where previously there was a slope.
It needs some sort of edge that shows up so people don't miss the step and fall.
It can be quite dampish so would a white paint,Glow paint or strip of some sort be best.
Nothing too expensive and about 2 metres needed.
Any suggestions pleas?

    Pick a colour that creates the most contrast to the paving. Sometimes a dark colour can stand out better than white.

    I think white would be best for this particular step.
    Would a bit of old white gloss do the trick?
    I have some already so don't mind if it wears off periodically.

    Try it and see. If it doesn't work, you could try some of that reflective tape. I suppose you'd need to nail it down
