Little Known Safety Benefits of Fiberglass
Fiberglass has endless opportunities. Some industry applications flock to fiberglass use because it is a more cost efficient means for certain solutions. But, there are significant safety benefits as well. Fiberglass is a type of reinforced plastic with glass fiber. For flooring material, grit-covered fiberglass can be the supreme solution for facility needs. Inside the plant, there are plenty of ways to keep employees safe. Finding durable, long-lasting materials will keep the plant running smoothly, while protecting the staff and equipment.
When thinking about a strong material, fiberglass may not be your first thought. However, it is a more than capable product. In fact, pound for pound, fiberglass is stronger than sheet metal.When needing a strong material that can withstand extremes, fiberglass has a lot to offer. Fiberglass is corrosion, chemical and fire resistant. This is substantial protection for harsh work environments.
Although fiberglass is a lightweight material, it is long-lasting. One of the key features of its staying power is its flexibility. Fiberglass’ composition allows it to bend and flex without immediately snapping or cracking. Flexibility grants a long life for fiberglass products. And once fiberglass is placed, it’s nearly maintenance-free with limited upkeep. General industrial floor cleaner is sufficient to clean fiberglass products.
When it comes to safety in the workplace, there are two specific ways that fiberglass works well. Sure-Foot created two different fiberglass products to meet demand: fiberglass step covers and fiberglass walkways. Sure-Foot’s commercial non-slip fiberglass step covers and walkway applications are made with a proprietary blend of mineral abrasive epoxy grit that completely and safely covers surfaces to provide slip resistance, durability and a permanent anti-slip solution.
Slips, trips and falling are the most common causes of accidents in the workplace. Creating safe flooring can go a long way and eradicate hazardous conditions. Falls can happen to anybody, at any time, but with grit-coated fiberglass step covers and walkways, facility floors have an extra layer of safety. These non-slip coverings provide a permanent and durable anti-slip solution to businesses, construction sites and other work environments.
