Ever worked on a home project where you need a rugged anti-slip surface? Could be stair treads, maybe the side of a pool, a deck or anywhere slippery. One option is BRAXX anti-slip sheeting for an application that does not require load bearing material, IE. you are going to simply screw, nail, or bolt the anti-slip surface into a substrate. BRAXX comes in a standard 3′ x 9′ sheet that is 0.30″ thick and this is the only size available. There are two options, a blue UHMW plastic with sand surface anti-slip buttons or the more popular safety yellow UHMW with LUNS (clean coal slag) anti-slip buttons. See picture below for detail of each. This product is very strong as UHMW cannot break and it was originally developed for military applications such as the floor surface of naval tank carriers.

The product cannot be ‘glued’ using a liquid adhesive. Mechanical fixation is required but there is no special hardware for this…Nails, bolts, screws, whatever you have lying around will work. UHMW is easily fabricated with power tools found at home. This is a premium product, you can expect a cost of approximately $600.00/sheet US funds before freight is factored in. However, for a premium anti-slip surface from the demanding DIY individual, it’s the best there is.
