Treading safely: New anti-slip tape range from DURABLE
Iserlohn, 19.05.2022 Lubricant film, dirt, moisture, cleaning agent and oil residues – the floor in any working environment can become a slippery surface that could lead to workplace accidents. Slips, trips and falls have for many years been the number one cause of accidents at work, as proven by the statistical studies undertaken by accident insurance companies. It is therefore essential that steps are taken to adhere to legal requirements regarding occupational safety – such as the German statutory accident insurance regulation DGUV 108-003 and the German workplace ordinance ASR A1.5 “Floors”.
The new DURALINE® GRIP anti-slip tapes are an efficient way to make paths and steps safe. The tapes help prevent slipping thanks to a granulated layer and are rated all the way up to the highest slip resistance classification 13. One particular version of DURALINE® GRIP tape features an aluminium backing which is particularly good at adapting to different surfaces – including uneven ones.
DURABLE is presenting the new range at LogiMAT 2022, which runs from 31 May to 02 June 2022 in Stuttgart, Germany (hall 5, stand C08). Eleven different versions of the anti-slip tape will be available from early June from specialist retailers and online. Retailers can be found at durable.eu.
Beat a safe path
Uh oh, slip hazard! When people imagine hazardous areas, they often think of production and logistics departments where staff may need to cross dirty floors, climb ladders or traverse large machinery. However, these are not the only places where risks are typically found. Offices, public facilities and shops can also harbour slip hazards in the form of steps or slopes. Sports and leisure facilities, too, have an increased risk of accidents due to slipping, be it through speed of movement, sweat or spilt drinks. Anti-slip tapes provide the necessary grip in any location while also marking out the safe route to take.
The tapes are coated with abrasive minerals made from aluminium oxide. There is a choice of grain size: 60 for very secure grip and 36 for extremely secure grip. DURALINE® GRIP is available in black or in black/yellow for high visibility. All versions come in a roll length of 15 m and are available in widths of 25, 50 and 75 mm.
