Anti Grabbity

Is your balcony safe?

Improve your balcony safety in a cost effective, easy to install way, requiring no modifications to your home with Anti Grabbity. It’s a perfect solution for renters.

“Anti Grabbity” is a prickly textured strip that fits along the top of your balcony railing to prevent hands from grabbing hold. This makes it extremely difficult for small children to lean over the rail or pull themselves up.

Not just for children either, “Anti Grabbity” is the perfect barrier for reckless adults partying on hotel balconies. Put a stop to planking and dangerous alcohol-fueled behavior.

The transparent strips connect together to cover your balcony railing requiring only a few minutes to install. Virtually invisible, they’ll keep any strata happy.

Applications

Living in cities is becoming a more popular choice for families with young children with many lifestyle benefits. Two downsides to apartment living are 1. Apartment size and 2. Dangerous balconies.

Currently, most parents are just locking the balcony doors. In large cities the balcony area is a large portion of your living space and your kids outdoor area. Closing the doors cuts off your fresh air and decreases your square footage.

If you do leave your balcony doors open you can’t watch your kids 100% of the time. Kids love to climb and chances are at some stage they will try to climb over the railing. Do you want to take the chance of leaving them unprotected?Buy it now!

Since 2000 there have been 271 overboard incidents on cruise ships. Falling overboard is a reality especially when alcohol is involved.

Parents are hesitant about booking a cruise for their family because they are too worried about their kids climbing over the balcony railings. When they do book, they choose the cheaper inside suite without a balcony as the safer option. Could you do more to assist in preventing falls overboard and at the same time increase your sales by making your ship more inviting to families?

Show your guests you have them protected. Find out how easy this will be, call Hollie on 0413 666 345

Balcony safety is a significant concern, especially during times such as Schoolies, with numerous teenagers in the party mood, fueled with alcohol and engaging in risky behavior. Since the hotels voted against closing balcony doors during the Schoolies period, the only option to keep them safe is Anti Grabbity.

Balcony falls not only have a human and financial cost but your reputation will be permanently damaged. If a fall happens, when anyone Googles your hotel name search results won’t be showing the lovely view you have, instead articles on the latest drunk teenager falling to their death will be shown.

Don’t wait until a fall happens at your hotel. Call Hollie 0413 666 345 to get your hotel protected for Schoolies 2016 and for all future guests with small children.

Installation


Clean the balcony railing to ensure it is free of any grease, dirt or oil, especially if you are using glue dots.


If you have a gap under your railing, use cable ties. If there is no space use glue dots. 

Using cable ties:
Place the first strip against the end of the rail (use one glue dot here to keep it in place). Tie the cable tie around the rail and strip.

Using glue dots:
Place four dots on each strip. Stick to the railing and hold down firmly. Use gardening gloves or a tea towel to place on top while pressing down.


Position the end of the cable tie to the outside of the rail. Pull it as tight as possible and cut the excess.


Connect the second strip as shown, pushing the knobs into the holes. Cable ties are only really needed on every second strip. If using glue dots put them on all the strips.

Continue like this to the end of the rail.


Measure the remaining end of the rail, mark this distance on the last strip.

Using a Stanley knife or sharp knife, score the side and top of the strip at the marked place. Grab the strip in a tea towel with thumbs either side of the score mark. Bend and snap hard and fast to break.


If you need to attach the strips permanently, use a couple of drops per strip of either Selley’s Clear Liquid Nails or Bostik Multi Bond. 

Warning: this may remove the paint or varnish when it’s time to take the strips off.


To remove the strips cut the cable ties. If you have used glue dots pull the strips off slowly but firmly.

If you have used liquid nails, pull the strips off carefully then remove any remaining glue with a solvent suitable for the railing material. Test on a nonvisible area first to avoid damage to the rail.

FAQ

I can’t attach “Anti Grabbity” with a cable tie on my balcony railing. What do I do?

Not all balconies will have a gap or a free rail to attach using a cable tie. For a semi-permanent option (1 – 2 years) use the adhesive dots.
If you want a really firm permanent hold, buy some Selley’s Clear Liquid Nails or Bostik Multi Bond from a hardware store.

How many cable ties do I use?

Attach one cable tie per 50cm section for a strong hold. If you have a limited number of places to put your cable ties, use adhesive dots on the sections without a cable tie.

My balcony is curved, will “Anti Grabbity” fit?

At the moment “Anti Grabbity” only fits straight balcony railings. Curved sections will be added to the range in the near future.

I don’t want to use adhesive and I can’t use cable ties either what can I do?

Great news, I’ve thought of you guys. There will be a new attachment option in the near future. In the meantime, try the adhesive dots, you can remove them without damage to your rail.
