ADDISON, IL, January 30, 2009 — Of the estimated 3.8 million disabling injuries each year in the work force,15 percent are due to slips, trips, or falls, which account for 12 to 15 percent of all Workers’ Compensation costs.
Pres-On, a leading manufacturer of adhesive products, is helping businesses combat slips in the workplace by introducing its Shur-Step® line of adhesive-backed matting in PVC (R-200) and textured thermoplastic rubber (T-200). Both provide outstanding slip-resistance on floors, step stools, ladders, lockers and running boards, while also exhibiting excellent traction on work tables and counters being employed for assembly or service.
Both Shur-Step® matting products feature rugged construction to resist wear in heavy commercial or industrial environments. While staying firmly in place thanks to an acylic adhesive applied to the flooring side, Shur-Step® matting can be cleaned easily, plus will not absorb oils, chemicals or grease, adding to their long-lasting value.
In addition, the matting’s dense composition deadens noise, contributing to a safer, more productive workplace.
Like all Pres-On products, Shur-Step® matting can be custom ordered to the length, width and thickness required by the application or in specialized die-cuts. Standard size in the PVC matting is 3/32-inch thickness in a length of 75 feet. For the thermosplastic rubber, the standard size is 1/16-inch in a length of 50-feet. Both standard sizes can be be ordered in widths of 1/4-inch to 54 inches.
