Crossgrip safety matting is an ideal solution for this type of application as many services are located on the roof. This means that defined walkways are necessary so that service engineers have safe access to maintain and repair at any time.
Due to its flexible construction, the matting contours easily over uneven surfaces and its raised 14mm height helps it to straddle ponding water. The loose lay system means the matting can be easily laid and quickly relocated if needed. Besides, its vinyl composition makes it resistant to bacterial growth and impermeable in all weathers.
Moidean, Maintenance Engineer from Tesco, comments:
"This safety solution from Plastic Extruders has had a dramatic effect. In the winter time, even I was reluctant to go out onto the roof as the membrane was very slippery. Now we have safe access any time of the year and in any weather. It’s really made a big difference to us and the safety of our maintenance teams. The grip underfoot is very impressive and we feel a lot happier and safer negotiating the rooftop pipes, conduits and obstacles".
