Tested by an independent laboratory for slip resistance according to standards and methods established by Federal Specification for slip resistance - Grip Strut® Safety Grating proved its superiority by exceeding all requirements of this specification.
Grip Strut® Safety Grating tested 10% to 180% more slip-resistant than similar materials, depending on shoe materials and surface conditions. Grip Strut® Safety Grating substantially reduces accidents caused by falls. In addition, the hazard of falling objects is minimized by the 1-7/8” x 11/16” shape and size of the surface openings.
A 4-ft. length of Grip Strut® Grating was tested dynamically for metal fatigue and durability. One end was securely anchored while the other end was weighted with a 75-lb. load. Then the free, weighted end was vibrated 30,000 times.
The result -- No fatigue or structural failure was evident!
