Armstrong Introduces Safety Zone Slip Retardant Sheet, Engineered for Safety Underfoot with Easy Maintenance

Lancaster, Pa., October 22, 2015 – Armstrong Commercial Flooring introduces new Safety Zone Slip Retardant Sheet to its current safety tile offering. This new slip-retardant sheet provides a through-pattern construction in a dense, de-aerated formulation for lasting safety underfoot, an easy-to-clean surface, and durable wear and stain resistance in high-traffic conditions. The formulation also improves flexibility of the floor for ease of installation.

Enhanced Slip-Retardant Performance
The through-pattern wear layer of Safety Zone Slip Retardant Sheet incorporates aluminum oxide and quartz particles which give Safety Zone Slip Retardant Sheet its slip-retardant performance. The silicon carbide particles throughout the surface layer provide additional initial grab when applying walking pressure.

“Healthcare and education facilities have a responsibility to their occupants, providing an environment that is clean, comfortable, dry and safe. With Armstrong Safety Zone Slip Retardant Sheet and Safety Zone Tile, customers now have two quality options for dry areas that require an extra measure of safety,” said Patricia Fanty, marketing manager, Armstrong Commercial Flooring.

Safety Zone Tile: Modular Designs with Added Safety
Armstrong Safety Zone Tile offers a modular 12” x 12” tile option for slip-retardant safety flooring. Like Safety Zone Slip Retardant Sheet, it features a through-pattern wear layer construction for lasting performance under heavy traffic conditions. The embossed surface is embedded with proprietary particles for slip-retardant performance.
