Anti Skid Surfacing
Anti Skid can save lives and reduce the risk of serious injuries on all classes of highway. On walkways, footbridges or other pedestrian areas, reducing slip hazards can improve safety. Anti Skid can also reduce the potential for accident and third party claims in the workplace. Anti Skid may also be pigmented.
