Australian Slip Resistance Standards
17th March 2015

Not Slippery When Wet (or Dry)

In 2013 there were changes to the 'Slip Resistance Australian Standards' which has encouraged Awnet to implement another safety initiative. A non-slip surface can now be applied to the top plate of the Awnet in-ground socket. The material adhears to the highest standard of slip resistance. Well above the requirements of general footpath surfaces. The material can also be printed with your logo!
