Fordex Safety Matting

Grip Guard Fordex® safety flooring is designed to provide a secure non-slip surface in areas where grip under foot is paramount to pedestrian safety.

The diamond shaped nodule design channels water away reducing any unsightly and dangerous pooling, which is the major cause of aquaplaning. Fordex® is a cost effective way of eliminating the risk of slips, trips and falls, particularly on ramps leading in and out of buildings.

Product Description

Most asset managers are aware of the increasing risk of public liability and the pressure that is being placed on specifiers and installers of safety products. When it comes to pedestrian anti-slip requirements and public safety, it may be prudent not to rely on surfaces which are inconsistent, are produced in-situ by installers with little or no training and surface treatments which wear away over time.

For the first time, Fordex® takes the guess work out of safety surfaces by providing you a proven and tested flooring surface which meets the Australian Standards AS4586 and the Building Code of Australia (BCA).

Fordex® marine grade safety flooring has a durable, attractive surface consisting of numerous diamond shaped nodules that are further abraded on the top surface. This design improves grip even in the most challenging conditions. The surface nodules channel water away reducing unsightly & dangerous water ponding which can be the major cause of aquaplaning.

Fordex® safety flooring is designed to provide a secure nonslip surface in areas where grip under foot is paramount to pedestrian safety. A combination of specialized polymers and surface profile design delivers a high co-efficiency of friction in both wet & dry conditions.

Fordex® is a cost effective way of eliminating the risk of slips, trips and falls, particularly on ramps leading in and out of buildings.
