Slip-Resistant Metal Floor Plates  image

Slip-Resistant Metal Floor Plates

Metal Floor Plates provide maximum protection against slips and falls in any environment where the accumulation of liquids, dust, grease or other substances creates potentially hazardous conditions. Unique laser-welded deposits deliver unparalleled durability and traction, making this technology a smart choice for high-traffic applications in workplace or public settings. ALGRIP Metal Floor Plate is designed for easy cleaning and is intended for projects where a solid walking surface is desired.

Design Features

Available in a wide range of standard materials, sizes and finishes, ALGRIP Metal Flooring is extremely versatile and used throughout many different industries. Custom fabrication and finishes are also available for projects with special performance or installation requirements. Ross' patented CNC laser deposition process applies more than 1,000 rugged, custom-alloy deposits per square foot in a highly precise and uniform pattern. The superior bond strength of these deposits not only increases the useful product life, but also allows nearly any type of onsite fabrication without compromising the traction providing surface. And the smooth area between raised deposits helps deter the pooling of liquids and trapping of solids, which results in a product that exhibits exceptional self-cleaning characteristics.
