How do you keep workers safe from large volumes of production waste in a fast-moving manufacturing environment?
Global manufacturer Technical Fibre Products needed a slip resistant surface that could also help dissipate large volumes of excess liquid.
Global manufacturer Technical Fibre Products make high performance non-woven materials for a range of uses, including fire protection, thermal insulation and power storage. Its unique wet-laid production process means large volumes of fluid can often seep onto the production floor, as well as other corrosive industrial materials. TFP needed a matting solution that could cover a large area, keep workers safe from slipping on unwanted debris, as well as cope with the heavy-duty demands of a fast-moving manufacturing environment.
- Quickly drains and dissipates large volumes of liquid
- Provides the highest slip resistance
- Tough, resilient and impermeable to corrosive industrial materials
- Lightweight and easy to roll for regular cleaning
After stress testing several different products, Flexigrid was far and beyond the best solution for the problem. Its elevated 20mm height meant any hazardous matter could be quickly dispersed and drained, while the diamond tread surface delivered added traction and certified slip resistance.
The one-piece covering means the matting can be loose laid for quick installation, and easily rolled up to facilitate regular cleaning. And because it's made from non-porous PVC, Flexigrid repels oils, acids and chemicals, making it ideal for a manufacturing environment like TFP.
Extra-aggressive matting capable of withstanding even the toughest environments, Flexigrid is ideal for workplaces where spillages and debris are an issue.
