No more slippery fish
29 April 2013
Vynagrip matting, manufactured by Plastic Extruders, is solving a slippery problem for the largest fish shop in Piraeus, the port of Athens in Greece. Fresh off the boats each day, large quantities of fish are delivered together with packed ice, while over counter machines continually spray water to keep the fish wet. The result was that the shop's tiled floor used to become very slippery with increased risk of slip and fall accidents.
To solve this, Vynagrip matting was laid alongside the counters to create a safe and slip resistant surface. The matting is self-draining because its open grid format and its textured surface quickly and efficiently drain large amounts of water. Vynagrip is made from two layers of non-porous, flexible PVC that are welded together to create extra strong joints.
