Safety Flooring

Grip Guard marine grade safety flooring is designed to provide a secure non-slip surface in areas where grip under foot is essential for pedestrian safety. The diamond shaped nodule design channels water away reducing any dangerous pooling, a major cause of aquaplaning. Grip Guard marine grade safety flooring is a cost effective means of eliminating the risk of slips and falls, particularly on ramps and in marine environments

Fordex® marine grade safety flooring has a durable, attractive surface consisting of numerous diamond shaped nodules that are further abraded on the top surface. This design improves grip even in the most challenging conditions. The surface nodules channel water away reducing unsightly & dangerous water ponding which can be the major cause of aquaplaning.

Fordex® safety flooring is designed to provide a secure nonslip surface in areas where grip under foot is paramount to pedestrian safety. A combination of specialized polymers and surface profile design delivers a high co-efficiency of friction in both wet & dry conditions. The resulting flooring surface meets the Australian Standards AS4586 and the Building Code of Australia (BCA).

Fordex® is a cost effective way of eliminating the risk of slips, trips and falls, particularly on ramps leading in and out of buildings. When it comes to pedestrian anti-slip requirements and public safety, it may be prudent not to rely on surfaces which are inconsistent and produced in-situ by installers with little or no training and surface treatments which wear away over time.
