Our ALGRIP® traction surface creates a safe working and walking environment in slippery conditions. Using a patented CNC laser welding process to deposit more than 1,000 traction features per square foot, ALGRIP offers slip-resistant commercial metal flooring with a permanently bonded surface.

With a maximum coefficient of friction (COF) of 0.99, ALGRIP’s unique application pattern provides unparalleled slip-resistance in all directions as shoe and tire materials completely encircle and “grab” the deposits. This makes the ALGRIP surface an ideal choice for improving traction in a variety of applications, including stairs, public walkways, production line floors, machinery platforms, and other walking surfaces.

The ALGRIP surface can be applied for additional traction on a wide range of Ohio Gratings products including metal bar grating, stair treads, floor plate, nosing, ladder rungs, and expansion joint covers. It is available in carbon steel, stainless steel or aluminum substrates.
