Plastex Matting News
Global tool manufacturer Sandvik Coromant has installed black Vynagrip Plus matting with yellow edging in its Cirencester works (UK).
Manufactured by Plastic Extruders, the matting provides employees working in the large production areas with a safe and slip resistant surface underfoot. Vynagrip Plus covers the factory floor with its yellow edging clearly delineating the safe walkway.
The matting was chosen for this application because it can be loose laid and contours over rough and uneven floors which is ideal where floor levels change, slope or cross thresholds. Importantly, the matting is very hard wearing, can be easily rolled up to facilitate cleaning and helps combat the problems of standing fatigue over prolonged periods.
The matting's extra aggressive and deep etched surface, which is resistant to oil, acid and chemicals, achieves a high rating for slip resistant performance (R11, for surfaces with angle of incline between 19 and 27 degrees) when tested to DIN 51130. The open grid allows liquid spills and production waste to fall through, further reducing the risk of slippery.
It is available in 10m roll lengths, 60, 91 and 122cm wide.
