ESG welcomes ESG Floorlux Slip-Resistant Glass Flooring

13 Feb

Imagine slip resistant glass flooring and pictures of heavy duty rough surfaces immediately spring to mind. However ESG are turning this notion on its head with their elegant and smooth slip-resistant glass flooring, ESG Floorlux.

Designed with safety and aesthetic appeal in equal measure, ESG Floorlux comprises three glass sheets laminated together to create a glass floor panel. Depending on the assessed risk, ESG Floorlux is available in two finishes; ESG Floorlux Clear and ESG Floorlux Satin. Both have a unique pattern design on the surface that significantly reduces slip potential.

The patterned glass is made with a rolled glass process. The semi-molten glass is squeezed between two metal rollers. The bottom roller is engraved with the negative of the potter. Thickness is controlled by the two high precision metal rollers.

ESG Floorlux Clear is recommended for low to medium risk environments whilst ESG Floorlux Satin features satin strips across its surface to reduce the potential for slips even further.

Both products are made from 10mm thick toughened safety glass and are rated to Class 1 in accordance with BS EN 12600:2002, ensuring the glass pieces remain adhered to the films upon the unlikely event of breakage. Meeting the UK Slip Resistant Group’s recommended testing guidelines, specifiers can also be safe in the knowledge that the floor offers the necessary protection to limit the likelihood of slipping.
