Importance of Non-Slip Flooring

Non-slip flooring is essential in Food manufacturing plants, as it protects your staff from any slipping hazards. Non-slip flooring provides grip for forklifts and other moving vehicles and trolleys. Each facility requires a different non-slip level to cater for their specific needs.

In areas that are dry and are mainly for warehousing or entry foyers, a light non-slip (R9-R10) is perfect. For commercial kitchens, processing and packing areas where frequent wash-downs are necessary, a medium non-slip (R10-R11) is suitable. Heavy non-slip (R11-R12) is ideal for particularly wet areas, abattoirs and meat processing facilities. This is mainly because of the amount of liquid in these areas, causing them to become high-slip danger zones. Very heavy non-slip (R13) is particularly suitable for freezers, coolrooms or other dangerously slippery areas.

Bakeries are best selecting a Flake Floor solution, as it provides a level of grip that does not allow flour or other small substances to get caught in the floor (allowing bacteria to develop). 

Some facilities prefer a stipple finish, providing a lower level of grip but without compromising safety.
