DURAGRIT

When Safety Comes First

A non-slip system, designed for hazardous surfaces.

Some surfaces can present a slip hazard, especially in environments where they may be wet or dirty. DURAGRIT is designed specifically for entranceways where slipping is a concern. The durable grit tread provides a safe walking surface to minimise the risk of slips or falls.

Safety

While providing a valuable service in retaining dirt and moisture from passing traffic, DURAGRIT is above all a safety matting system. Slip tested to AS/NZS standards, DURAGRIT provides sure footing to protect people where the danger of a fall is high – in wet, gritty conditions, even on an inclined surface.

Construction

Designed & manufactured in Australia, DURAGRIT is for heavy-traffic areas and has a durable aluminium frame with a grit-embedded Nitrile insert. Suitable for internal or external applications, the hard-wearing grit tread will endure punishing use without reduced performance even under the harshest conditions.

Application

DURAGRIT has been used successfully in retail and office entranceways where the safety of workers and the public is paramount. DURAGRIT is such a robust and safe system that it is also used in more industrial settings to ensure worker safety in manufacturing facilities and other industrial environments.

Engineered Performance

The grit inserts are alternated with furrowed aluminium treads to provide additional grip. This design ensures the overall strength of the matting system will take heavy use without a reduction in performance.

Quality Manufacturing

The grit inlay is manufactured using a 3-stage process to provide a high-quality product that you can rely on, with abrasive grit being adhered to the treads before a flexible resin coating is applied to create the non-slip surface.

slip-tested

To meet your safety requirements, this matting system has been slip-tested to AS/NZS 4586:2013 standard.

Durable Construction

The matting extrusions are made from a 6000 Series Aluminium alloy which provides a corrosion-resistant finish.

Drainage Options

Both closed and open matting construction options are available. Open construction allows for water drainage in areas prone to high rainfall or flooding.

Tailor-Made

Designed and manufactured in Australia, DURAGRIT matting systems are custom-made for each site to ensure a perfect fit with no movement under use.

Hard-wearing matting system designed for hazardous surfaces.

Birrus DURAGRIT Systems

DURAGRIT has a track-record in providing a safe walking surface even in wet conditions on an incline. The inlay is manufactured with a three-stage process. Firstly, the Dura polyurethane/Nitrile surface is finished for adhesion. Then, abrasive grit particles are adhered to the top before it receives a final flexible resin coating which creates the specialised anti-slip surface.
 
DURAGRIT is available in both open and closed construction formats. The 10mm Open Slimline Construction option features an aluminium extrusion system with a perforated joining strip between the treads to allow for drainage. The Closed Construction option is available in both 10mm and 16mm configurations.

Installation

Birrus Matting Systems require and internal recess depth of 12mm or 20mm. Standard Birrus matwell frames are fabricated using aluminium alloy, brass and stainless-steel angle for compatibility with our mats.

Place angle in the recess and set angles level with adjoining floor surfaces. Glue in or screw fix as required. Contractors are advised, to ensure proper performance of the entire assembly it is absolutely necessary that base of matwell is formed to a level plane, using an engineered screed.  We do not recommend sand and cement screed as it will break up over time.

Alternating Configuration

An alternative installation method for DURAGRIT is to install DUAL TREADS (that is, 2 x 50mm wide increments) alternately set into concrete, or paving tiles across sloping ramps and walkways.

 

Care & Maintenance

For abrasive grit, the best method is a hot water hose or stiff brush. Do NOT use mops.

Replacement of inserts is a simple job carried out in-situ. A full range of inserts are available from your local distributor.

Restore lustre to ribbed aluminium sections by lightly rubbing over with abrasive wool.
