The STANDARD non-skid profile is the first one that was commercialized. After several years and thousand of meters sold, this profile represents the best compromise between grip, aesthetic and cost. It is the most recommended non-skid profile for outsides because of its higher height and consequently its better efficacy when snowing or freezing.
The 5MM non-skid profile differs from the Standard one by its minor penetration and external height. The thickness of the drop-in part is less, so it can be installed by using any kind of diamond blade (even if it is worn out). It is perfect for slender marbles and ceramics.
The anti-slip “PLUS” profile maintains some of the characteristics of “5MM” as the least depth of embedding, the rounded lower edges and grooves made in the walls to improve the bonding and increases the active surface to 16.8 mm with a protruding content in just 2 millimeters.
Applying the model Plus an exclusive machining STOPSKID, the result is this variant, which we call “PLUS-X”. This non-slip profile further enhances the excellent grip of our profiles, but above all, significantly improves longitudinal grip, although in most cases inconsequential, in specific cases can be decisive.
The 2CM non-skid profile requires a groove of 18/20 mm. width and 4 mm. depth. These grooves are common among marble workers that usually utilize carborundun. Since the carborondum process is laborious and bothersome, this profile reduces the time performed noticeably, enhances the aesthetic. It is long lasting and easily replaceable (if required).
It should be pointed out that once it is installed it protrudes 0,8 mm. only
