Application

Used in many environments where high resistance to wear, coupled with hygiene qualities are necessary, such as chemical processing plants, underground rail stations, refineries, food processing, abattoirs, dairies, breweries, paper-making industries, marine decking, hospitals and nuclear power decontamination areas.

Description

Stainless steel flooring used in a wide range of industries as a long term, corrosion resistant solution for use in most environments. The durability of stainless steel flooring systems provide a cost effective, low maintenance, high durable solution for floors, platforms and access equipment.

The distinctive tear-shaped, raised tread pattern provides positive traction for both pedestrian and wheeled traffic.

Features and benefits:

  • Available in stainless steel grade 1.4301 (304) or grade 1.4401 (316).
  • Low maintenance: Eliminates the necessity for painting or protective coating.
  • Corrosion resistance: Provides good corrosion resistance, needing little or no maintenance during its service life.
  • Hygienic: The tear-shaped pattern of the tread enables cleaning of waste liquid and surface cleaning much easier, as well as providing sanitary and hygiene qualities, where a sterile environment is important.
  • Hard wearing: High wear resistance, durability and toughness in most environments, providing a more comprehensive solution than carbon steel or aluminium.
  • Anti-static: Has low magnetic permeability, which is particularly important for applications where sensitive machinery is used in hospitals or areas where low flashpoint chemicals are handled.

Applications:

Used in many environments where high resistance to wear, coupled with hygiene qualities are necessary, such as chemical processing plants, underground rail stations, refineries, food processing, abattoirs, dairies, breweries, paper-making industries, marine decking, hospitals and nuclear power decontamination areas.

Standard product features

Tread:

Integrally formed 1–2 mm thick ‘teardrop’. It is grip effective for any angle of approach.

Maximum safe working load:

Dependent on thickness, width and length, consult manufacturer's literature for information.

Product Options

Design:

Suregrip can be supplied with plain holes, countersunk holes or elongated slots in all thicknesses. It can also be bent to specified angles to form kickflats, upstands and stair treads, etc. up to 3500 mm long.

Fixings:

Floorfasts fixings should be used when fixing to steelwork. The Floorfast is designed to enable the Suregrip to be secured from above using a simple tee-handled hexagon key. This fixing eliminates the need for access from below and does not require any site drilling or welding.
