TREADSURE Arkad Health & Safety Limited

TREADSURE Traction Enhancement treatment decreases the risk of slips and falls by increasing the traction of surfaces without changing the physical properties of the treated surface.

The unique nanotechnology allows the treatment of indoor and outdoor surfaces where a slip and fall hazard is present. This can be completed in a short period of time with little interruption to the usual foot traffic, minimising downtime and loss of production.

Slip and fall hazards are an ever-present danger in our lives. They can be disruptive to our health, families, businesses and profits. They can even be fatal. Whether you are at work or enjoying a leisure activity the risk of slipping and falling is almost always present.

With TREADSURE it is inexpensive to treat large areas and can be applied in high-traffic areas with minimal inconvenience. It does not change or damage the physical properties of the treated surface and cannot create ‘trip hazards’ like some other anti-slip solutions.

The traction enhancement treatment can be completed in less than two hours with little interruption to regular foot traffic. In business this results in minimal downtime and loss of production. No special skills or equipment are required therefore treatment can be completed by anyone using a pump spray, mop and bucket.

TREADSURE is the only product available for the direct treatment of footwear to increase traction. Tweet us @TomorrowsHS

MSA Safety’s V-TEC self-retracting lifeline (SRL) is the first in the market to include an inbuilt retraction dampener which allows the user to release the cable safely via controlled retraction; this prevents potential injury to the user and damage to the main body of the unit. It also offers safe operation and a reduction in costs and downtime.

Part of the easy-to-use V-Series range of safety harnesses and SRLs, the V-TEC also benefits from patented radial energy absorbing technology which ensures control over force exerted on it. Together, the radial energy absorber and dampener translate the latest technology into ease of use, inspection and maintenance.

Its construction is based on a design first used in the MSA Personal Fall Limiter. A clear outer casing allows instant inspection and peace of mind, while the radial energy absorber requires no calibration or adjustment before use. A convenient carrying handle is fitted for easy transport.

The V-TEC SRL is made using stainless steel and engineered plastics for great durability and, when necessary, its cable, energy absorber and retraction dampener can all be quickly replaced on site. A choice of galvanised or stainless cables, is available to meet the needs of different situations.

Alastair Hogg Director for Fall Protection Sales and Business Development, International said: “The V-TEC carves out new territory in SRL design and shows the kind of engineering innovation and user- friendly features the world has come to expect from MSA Safety fall protection.” AWARDS 2019 29
