How do you help keep employees in a fast-moving production environment safe from slips and free from fatigue?
Global tool manufacturer Sandvik Coromant needed a matting solution that would contour to uneven surfaces, dissipate production waste and help boost worker productivity.
As part of its ongoing expansion, global tool manufacturer Sandvik Coromant needed to extend their production facility. The expansion was added onto the existing building, which left the new flooring rough and uneven at varying levels, particularly where walls had been removed. The factory needed a flooring solution that would contour to the uneven sub-surface and sit flush against the machinery, providing a safe, slip-resistant environment for their employees.
- Sits flush against irregularly shaped machinery and work benches
- Quickly drains and dissipates production waste
- Easy to handle and roll up for quick cleaning
- Provides a hardwearing and durable surface, plus comfort underfoot
The expansion's rough flooring meant Sandvik Coromant needed a slip-resistant solution that would contour to the uneven surface. We recommended a combination of Vynagrip and Vynagrip Plus, our heavy-duty matting that can be quickly cut to fit on site and loose laid for seamless installation. The matting's open grid and two layer construction delivers superior drainage, while the non-porous PVC repels all kinds of workplace fluids, including oils, acids and chemicals.
The matting also helped Sandvik Coromant prioritise worker safety: the two-layer construction provides anti-fatigue properties proven to help boost productivity, while the yellow bands around the edge of Vynagrip Plus allowed the factory to delineate safe walkways around the heavy machinery.
Our number one defence against slippery environments, Vynagrip is heavy-duty matting designed to withstand all kinds of workplace liquids.
