All in the detail
Antislip Plus® was independently tested by the HSE’s Health and Safety Laboratory, (in accordance with BS 7976, parts 1-3, 2002) to the United Kingdom Slip Resistance Group guidelines (Issue 3, 2005).
Antislip Plus® was shown to significantly exceed the minimum requirement for ‘low potential for slip’ in both wet and dry conditions, and is therefore recommended for all decks where there is public access, or a high level of pedestrian traffic.
The Students Union at the University of Birmingham has been fully refurbished over a two year programme, culminating in the creation of an outdoor socialising area which provides a focal meeting point and links food and beverage outlets with a new retail hub and an administration center.
Senior Project Surveyor for the University Andy Stone said pedestrian safety had been a high priority for Mermaid Square and he was pleased with the choice of Antislip Plus®.
He added: “The decking is performing extremely well on its anti-slip qualities. It has been in full use for several months and has taken very high footfall with no reported slip related accidents to date. The decking also looks very good and has added an extra dimension to the look and feel of the Mermaid Square area.”
