Resin coated plywood boards improve safety
The base of our anti slip plywood boards is made from premium quality birch or marine ply. These are sourced exclusively from FSC and PEFC certified suppliers. Each non-slip plywood board is coated in a combination of refined aluminium oxide and resin components.
Also referred to as buffalo boards or acme panels, our coated plywood surface is highly effective and durable in all weathers. They can be relied on to withstand the rigours of industrial, infrastructure and high traffic environments.
Designed for bridge surfaces and platform structures, our anti slip boards provide a cost-effective solution to reduce slip hazards in a variety of settings. They can be easily fitted to many different types of structure, including concrete, steel and wood.
Installing your non-slip plywood boards
Coated plywood boards are installed through a system of pre-located and sealed fixing points. Boards can be further sealed in-situ using beads of single part adhesive/sealant. This prevents the ingress of moisture between neighbouring boards. Each anti slip plywood panel is cut and finished to specified sizes prior to delivery for ease of installation.
The resin plywood range features a choice of finished thickness and overall dimensions to suit a variety of load or non-load bearing applications.
We also offer options to embed tactile paving surface strips into boards. This further improves the safety for partially sighted persons and adds Equality Act compliance. This standard is now prerequisite in all UK built environments and provides warnings such as:
- a change in level on a bridge to a landing or stairs
- a railway platform edge
Plywood resin coated boards are a ‘made to order’ bespoke solution available with realistic lead times direct from our UK manufacturing facilities.
