Keeping fast food workers safe
12 December 2013
Vynagrip anti-slip matting, manufactured by Plastic Extruders, is a very durable and hardwearing matting widely used in all types of working environments to provide a permanent slip resistant surface in temperatures down to -26°C.
Vynagrip’s very durable, extra aggressive and deep etched surface is said to provide an excellent slip resistant performance (R11 when tested to DIN 51130). Furthermore, its non-porous 100% vinyl composition means it is resistant to acids, oils and fats making it suitable for use in food storage and preparation areas. It can be easily rolled up to facilitate cleaning while its open grid construction allows liquids and debris waste to fall through, thereby further reducing the risk of slipping or tripping.
An example of this is at a well-known fast food restaurant chain where it is used in frozen and chilled rooms to provide a comfortable and slip resistant walking surface. Since these areas often experience temperatures in excess of -20°C, it is vital to ensure safety underfoot and to protect workers from slipping on the frozen and icy floors.
