Safeguard Unveils Full Line of Anti-Slip Products at NSC 2010 Expo

STREETSBORO, Ohio – (September 8, 2010) Safeguard Technology, leading innovator of anti-slip solutions, will showcase its full line of superior anti-slip products, including five new glow-in-the-dark Hi-Traction Glo colors, Direct Gritting capabilities and a complete line of Safety Track® anti-slip tapes, at the National Safety Council 2010 Congress & Expo, Oct. 4 through 6 in San Diego, Calif.

More than 10,000 professionals in the safety, environmental and health industries are expected to attend the 2010 NSC Congress & Expo. Safeguard’s products will be on display at Booth 1548. Trade show attendees are invited to stop by the booth for detailed information about Safeguard’s advanced safety solutions.

At NSC 2010, Safeguard will introduce the latest colors in its cutting-edge Hi-Traction Glo Series. The Hi-Traction Glo Series combines Safeguard’s high-quality anti-slip surface with a long-lasting glow-in-the-dark pigment.

Safeguard now offers six different colors in the Hi-Traction Glo Series, including the original photoluminescent which is white when not glowing. The latest additions to the line include two new safety colors and three new fluorescent colors:

• Glo Safety Yellow
• Glo Safety Lime
• Glo Orange
• Glo Pink
• Glo Green

The Hi-Traction Glo covers are made with a non-toxic, non-radioactive, photoluminescent pigment that is embedded in the surface and can be charged repeatedly throughout the life of the product. Descriptive markings and PPE (personal protective equipment) symbols can also be illuminated in the dark with Safeguard’s customizable HiGlo safety messages. By using a photoluminescent background, the message is visible after dark and during power outages, providing a safe egress during emergency evacuations

Safeguard’s Direct Gritting will also be at NSC, a process where customers supply their parts (or an engineered drawing for fabrication) and Safeguard applies Hi-Traction anti-slip directly to the specified area. Direct Gritting helps reduce installation time, weight and cost. It is a desirable alternative when aesthetics are important or when mechanical fasteners are not an option (either structurally or due to unsightly screw heads).

Also at the show, Safeguard’s new offering of Safety Track® anti-slip tapes will be on display. Safety Track® tapes offer cost-efficient, quick-fix anti-slip solutions for lower-traffic areas. The durable peel-and-stick backing adheres securely to steps, floors and walkways, making installation easy. Safety Track® anti-slip tapes are certified by the National Flooring Safety Institute and are available in various levels of coarseness and a variety of colors, including glow-in-the-dark, resilient and conformable designs.
