THE BENEFITS OF OUR THERMALLY SPRAYED NON-SLIP COATINGS
There are a number of benefits to using our high-quality thermally sprayed non-slip coatings, regardless of the industry you operate in. Slips and trips that occur in the workplace are a serious issue to the health and safety of workers, and it is important companies act to mitigate these.
It is reported that slip, trip and fall injuries cost the UK approaching 1 billion pounds per year, with 37% of all reported workplace injuries being caused by a slip, trip or fall.
Our non-slip coating solutions will ensure that the risk of slips and falls is reduced, being highly effective on applications such as stairwells and treads, loading ramps and metal flooring.
OUR NON-SLIP, ANTI-SLIP COATINGS CAN BE SPRAYED ON A RANGE OF APPLICATIONS
- Escalator pallets
- Forklift loading ramps
- Fire exits and stairwells
- Disability ramps
- Lorry/vehicle tail lifts
- Train steps
- Manhole covers
- Steel floors and decks
NON-SLIP THERMAL SPRAY COATING VS HOT-DIP GALVANISING
Hot-dip galvanising has traditionally been used to protect steel structures against corrosion. It involves dipping metal parts into molten zinc and then allowing them to cool before applying. However, hot-dip galvanising can be slippery and does not easily accept paint for colouring without the use of special primers. These coatings can degrade quickly in heavy use, resulting in corrosion and an increased slip hazard.
Many large steel structures, including oil platforms, refineries and bridges, have been routinely protected against corrosion by thermal spray aluminium (TSA), zinc thermal spray or alloys of the two. However, whilst this is an extremely protective corrosion-resistant coating in very aggressive corrosive environments, it is not really durable enough to prevent long term wear on floor plates. This is where the Metallisation's 28E ARCTEC thermally sprayed coating can be used to offer non-slip properties whilst remaining resistant to wear.
