BSIA 80th ANNIVERSARY

80 Memories

YEARS OF BUILDING

I

CITIES THAT MAKE BC THE BEST PROVINCE
AND INDUSTRY TO WORK AND LIVE IN. FROM
THE VERY BEGINNING OF OUR ASSOCIATION
IN 1938, IT WAS ABOUT PEOPLE GETTING
TOGETHER, SOLVING PROBLEMS AND CREATING
OPPORTUNITIES TO BETTER OUR INDUSTRY. IT
IS THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE THE DIFFERENCE.
PEOPLE BUY FROM PEOPLE AND RELATIONSHIPS
STILL MAKE THE DIFFERENCE. A HAND SHAKE
STILL MEANS SOMETHING TO OUR MEMBERS AND
INTEGRITY IS A VALUE WE EMBRACE.

T IS AN HONOUR TO BE PART OF AN
INDUSTRY THAT IS STEEPED IN HISTORY
AND HAS CONTRIBUTED SO MUCH TO
THE GROWTH AND CHARACTER OF
BRITISH COLUMBIA. EVERY TOWN AND
CITY IN BC HAS A HARDWARE STORE OR
LUMBER YARD WHERE IT ALL BEGAN. OUR
MEMBERS HAVE SUPPLIED THE PRODUCTS
WE HAVE USED FOR RENOVATIONS AS WELL
AS THE LUMBER TO CONSTRUCT OUR HOMES,
SCHOOLS, AND BUILDINGS THAT HAVE FORMED
OUR COMMUNITIES. MORE IMPORTANTLY IS
THE TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITY OF BEING
ASSOCIATED WITH ALL THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE
CONTRIBUTED SO MUCH TO THESE TOWNS AND

GET-A-GRIP stair treads meet Building Code requirements under
wet conditions: Section 7.2.7 Slip Resistance test of;
* CAN/CGSB-75.1-M88
* ASTM C1028-07
* does not trap water underside therefore does not promote dry rot
* bare foot and pet friendly

We have used a number of different products in the past to minimize the risk of injury and liability with varied
levels of success. Our review followed lengthy correspondence with end-users and division supervisors, who have
continually reported problems with slippery surfaces and other associated maintenance concerns. Our original
installation was placed on a wooden wharf deck situated adjacent to one of our storm water pump stations, to
allow safe access for personnel continuously cleaning leaves and debris from pump station grates. The GET-A-GRIP
tread has worked very well to date. It provides a slip-free surface that has not corroded or discoloured.

looking, as have most of my customers.
