Safeguard’s Hi-Traction® Anti-Slip Covers Have Passed the Test

Hi-Traction and HiGlo-Traction Covers have undergone a battery of tests by independent laboratories, covering a wide range of performance parameters.

We Exceed OSHA and ADA Standards
When SAFEGUARD® products were tested for Coefficient of Friction using the Brungraber Mark II testing device, the results showed a COF value nearly double OSHA’s 0.5 guideline and far exceeding the ADA’s recommended value of 0.6. Even when angled as an ADA access ramp, and in wet or oily conditions, our anti-slip surface greatly exceeds these guidelines.

Take a look at our scores.

 

Protect Students, Teachers, Workers, and Visitors from Slips-and-Falls with SAFEGUARD® Hi-Traction® Anti-Slip Covers

People count on the safety of your campus – but not all steps, walkways, and ladders are up to the challenge. Surfaces such as concrete, tile, diamond plate, and wood can be very slippery and even more hazardous when wet, icy, snowy, or dirty.

SAFEGUARD® Hi-Traction® Anti-Slip Covers are installed over existing surfaces to increase traction and improve safety. Indoors or out, they also upgrade the appearance of the underlying surface.

Prevent slips-and-falls at universities and schools with deliberate design and sensible systems.

The large volume of traffic in and out of schools and universities every day increases the potential risk of slips-and-falls for students and staff. From a small elementary school to the largest university in the country, slips and trips can occur anywhere and anytime. Slip and fall prevention at schools begins with officials, architects, and facility managers being diligent with protecting students and staff from harm.
