Impermeable in all weathers, Crossgrip is highly specialised matting system for flat roofs, gantries and high level walkways, which provides continuous safe access to essential roof top services for maintenance. When laid flat, it will remain stable in winds up to 60 mph/96 km/h*, however if wind speeds of over 60mph are probable, Plastex recommends securing the matting system by welding connecting loops into the vinyl membrane.
Crossgrip, which is also impact resistant in extremely cold climates, is constructed from non-porous PVC in a unique design of special cross directional top ribs with a ‘diamond cut’ surface to give permanent slip resistance and a surer underfoot grip in a wide range of high level applications. The effective combination of an open grid format and 14 mm (9/16") above ground height enables self-draining and makes Crossgrip at its most efficient wherever water collects or puddles may occur.
Once installed, Crossgrip PVC, which is resistant to bacterial growth and only requires minimal periodic maintenance, such as cleaning and visual inspection for damage or movement, will remain effective for the life of the roof covering below. Compatible with vinyl roofing membranes, the product additionally gives continuous protection to roofing membranes from damaging weather, pedestrian traffic, tools and machinery.
Another major advantage is that Crossgrip is quick and easy to install. The flexibility of the product ensures that it will contour to uneven surfaces or imperfections in the roof structure, which are common where new membrane systems are laid over old ones.
Crossgrip comes in Black or Light Grey, and is supplied as standard in rolls of 10 m (33ft) by 60 cm (2'), 91 cm (3') and 122 cm (4'). Ancillary products include PVC coloured edging for increased visibility, connector clips and floor hooks.
