Vynagrip makes automotive automation safe


Bespoke Vynagrip anti-slip matting modules are being used to protect workers at the Sugitani Metal Industry Company, a sub-contractor of a major Japanese car manufacture that specialises in the production of automotive components in Japan. The matting modules, supplied complete with bevelled edges, have been installed in the cutting operations area.

Manufactured in the UK by Plastic Extruders Ltd and supplied by Japanese distributor AM Products Inc, Vynagrip provides a safe and effective solution for this dangerous location. The combination of metal shavings, cutting oil and water used for cleansing pose serious underfoot hazards for the workers and the matting addresses these multiple problems in one tidy answer.

The benefits of its deeply etched surface include a combination of durability and high slip resistance while the open grid surface allows the metals shavings to fall through the gaps as well as facilitating drainage. The matting’s PVC flexible composition makes it resistant to oils and other chemicals, is comfortable underfoot and facilitates cutting on site , making Vynagrip the perfect solution.

Vynagrip is an industrial grade, heavy duty matting specifically designed for industrial application and use in rugged working environments. Its surface provides a high R11 slip resistance rating, when tested to DIN 51130.

Vynagrip can be supplied in standard modules and roll format. Modules are available in 80 x 120cm or 100 x 150cm sizes while rolls can be 5m or 10m long and in widths of 60, 91 or 122cm. Standard colours are red, blue or black. The black version is manufactured from post-industrial recycled material and is fully recyclable, making it a sustainable and environmentally-sensitive choice.
