Selecting suitable anti-slip properties
The issue of suitable anti-slip properties depends on the use for the flooring. For instance, if the floor has to stand up under heavy wheel loads from transportation equipment, use of flooring with a low level of anti-slip is recommended. The deep and rough structure of flooring with high anti-slip properties is much more difficult to clean. Please note that a high level of anti-slip can lead to a greater danger of tripping, and joints are much more subject to strain. We would be pleased to advise you in your selection and will offer you the proper anti-slip properties as well as mechanical properties best suited for your Workspace.
