Anti-slip Glass

Walker Textures® Traction Acid-etched Anti-slip Glass

Walker Textures® Traction - the ultimate anti-slip glass flooring product. Multi-level acid-etching of the Traction surface provides an unprecedented design option by combining discretion and security without impeding the natural flow of light.

Traction is an all-glass flooring solution, using no coatings, paints or appliqués susceptible to chipping or flaking off. The slip resistant properties of Traction glass are entirely derived through acid etching, whereby portions of the glass surface are removed to varying depths by a controlled process. The result is attractive and durable anti-slip surfaces, characterised by striking designs. The unique combination of opacity and translucency provides for full privacy, while still allowing for maximum circulation of light between floors.

Walker Textures® Traction offers many advantages, including:

  • Superior slip resistance
  • Obscures view while maintaining a high level of light transmittance
  • Unique design
  • Consistent acid-etched finish
  • Conducive to high quality edgework
  • More durable than applied coatings
  • Superior resistance to surface contamination from dirt, oils, chemicals, liquids, food, etc.
  • Free of iridescence
  • anti-slip glass
