SCOTGRIP INTERNATIONAL®, the global specialists in the manufacture of high-quality industrial anti-slip safety products, announce their latest safety product innovation: Drainmat® for worksite areas affected by surface liquids.

Following an extensive period of research and development, to address ongoing industry challenges both offshore and onshore, the team has developed an innovative solution to improve surface traction and create a full drainage solution for surface liquids - allowing fluids to flow to carefully designed structural drains. A studded anti-slip surface design helps to eliminate slips and trips in a range of working environments including: oil and gas, renewables, maritime, petrochemical and the food and drink sectors.

Ralph Prise, managing director, says: “We’ve been developing this product over the past year and are very pleased with the finished result which we believe will further demonstrate Scotgrip International’s commitment to R&D, innovation and long-term sustainability – all of which are prerequisites for many of the sectors we operate in.”

A further benefit of this product innovation is that Drainmat® Modular Flooring features raw materials, which are 16% fully circular, and allows SCOTGRIP INTERNATIONAL® to reduce their environmental impact even further whilst supporting their customers’ sustainability objectives and strategies.

Earlier this year, the company achieved carbon neutral status and was recently awarded silver medal status in the annual assessment, for corporate social responsibility, by EcoVadis - placing SCOTGRIP INTERNATIONAL® in the top 25% of businesses assessed by EcoVadis in this sector.

Professor George Yule, chairman, adds: “Our design and production team has satisfactorily developed this innovative new product from their analysis of customers’ operational and HSE challenges and, given the flexibility of its modular design, this particular product can also be held in stock and is easily re-shaped to suit varying configurations and worksite areas. It also uses more sustainable materials which will add greater value to customers’ circular economy targets whilst enhancing our own carbon neutral credentials – and is lighter to man-handle, whether used on a rig, ship, factory floor or a wash-bay!”
