2.     TRACTION PROFILES

 

The most important element in providing a non-slip surface is the ability to provide the appropriate traction profile for the right situation.  AMS has designed some of the best traction profiles available today, providing exceptional traction or co-efficient of friction (COF). These profiles are a molded part of the pad(s) and are augmented by the aluminum oxide within the non-skid coating. 

 

Stainless Steel Studs (SSS) – rotary tables, drill floor surfaces (with drainage channels), stair treads

Low Profile (LP) – drill floor surfaces, vessel decking, walkways, landings, stair treads, catwalks

High Profile (HP) – stud less option for rotary tables, drill floor surfaces

Large Low Profile (LLP) – walkways, catwalks, container loading mats and heli-decks

3.    NON-SKID & PROTECTIVE COATING

 

Non-Skid contains sand and aluminum oxide particles to provide additional traction.  Our protective coating seals & bonds the polymer structure of all our traction pads.  Thus provides an additional barrier of protection from:

  • chemicals

  • diesel

  • other corrosive fluids

  • ultra-violet rays

This coating also while providing excellent resistance to corrosion, abrasion and impact.

AMS COLOR SYNC

 

Polymer, Non-Skid

& Protective Coating can be color matched for consistant color
