When discussing slip resistant resilient flooring for your facility or public area what are some characteristics, or properties, of the products that you are considering that should be discussed? Price, material, down time and longevity are all ones that immediately come to mind. Whether or not the product contains small particles, or grit, may not be one of the more obvious questions. Why is this something that should be examined? The dictionary defines grit as: “abrasive particles or granules, of sand or other small, coarse impurities found in the air, food, water, etc.” Grit is sometimes added to non slip flooring in order to create friction. Whether that flooring be epoxy or metal, grit is subject to wear and loss. Loosing pieces of grit over time can prove not only dangerous for individuals but dangerous to machinery and end products.
As a superior product to flooring that contains grit, SLIPNOT also offers a variety of metal options to fit any application. The steel SLIPNOT surface can be applied to aluminum plates for a durable yet lightweight alternative. In addition SlipNOT® ‘s grit free stainless steel slip resistant surface can be applied to aluminum base materials for a lightweight, lower cost alternative. Say “NO” to non-slip grit flooring, say “YES” to SLIPNOT
