Non-Slip Flooring Fibreglass Sheets for Commercial & Recreational Vehicles
Elyplan anti-slip fibreglass sheets by Brianza Plastica prevent loads and people from slipping on interior floors. Produced using a continuous hot-lamination process, this flooring is ideal for use in commercial and recreational vehicles, loading platforms, loading ramps and a range of other applications.
Elyplan anti-slip flooring is available in a range of thicknesses, from 0.8 to 3mm, and widths of up to 3,000mm. It comes in the form of rolls or sheets depending on your needs. Elyplan anti-slip has passed the abrasion-resistance test in accordance with the D4060-ISO 9352 standard. This ensures it is durable and long-lasting.
The standard colour is grey but other colours are also available on request. Elyplan anti-slip flooring is produced with a clear focus on achieving high levels of quality, while ensuring a high degree of safety and low environmental impact. The product is highly functional but also aesthetically pleasing, making it ideal for applications where visual appeal is important such as tunnel boot compartments of recreational vehicles.
Behind the Slip Resistance
Elyplan anti-slip is available in two different finishes: coarse grained ‘XT’ and medium grained ‘MEDIUM’. Both products ensure an excellent value of slip resistance due to the addition of quartzite. The rough surface of the laminate prevents people and vehicle loads from slipping, making it particularly suitable for interior floors of vans and truck bodies.
Quartzite is a type of nonfoliated metamorphic rock that is made up almost entirely of quartz. It forms when a quartz-rich sandstone is altered by heat, pressure and chemical activity of metamorphism. These conditions recrystallise the sand grains and the silica cement that binds them together. The result is a network of interlocking quartz grains of incredible strength that is also grippy and highly resistant to abrasions.
Applications of Elyplan Anti-Slip
The Elyplan anti-slip surface is ideal for a wide variety of applications that use flat fibreglass sheets, including:
- Recreational vehicles – Outstanding quality, lightness, aesthetic appeal make fibreglass panel ideal for recreational vehicles such as campers, caravans and motorhomes. Anti-slip flooring is ideal for improving safety and liveability.
- Commercial vehicles – The excellent resistance and dimensional stability, combined with lightness and easy workability, has made fibreglass panel the ideal material for constructing walls, roofs and floors of dry freight and temperature controlled vehicles. Anti-slip flooring is an excellent addition, especially in refrigerated vehicles where there is a higher risk of slipping due to the presence of moisture.
- Public transport – High strength, reliability and rigidity makes the use of fibreglass sheet ideal for building buses in the public transport industry. Anti-slip flooring ensures passenger safety during journeys that sometimes include sudden stops and minimises liability from potential injuries.

What anti-slip flooring materials are there?
Floor materials with a higher quartz content, such as mica, naturally tend to be less slippery than other types of floors. But when they are wet they are still hazardous unless treated. Other types of quartz floors, such as travertine and sandstone, also have anti-slip properties. Quartzite is superior because of its high silica content with some deposits having a silica content of over 98%.
Can you make any material anti-slip?
Anti-slip paints and coatings can be plied on surfaces to provide foot traction. These can be applied on any surface including asphalt, wood, metal, marble, concrete, stone etc, for long-term traction and decoration. There are also grip tapes you can use. The main downside is that they may be abrasive on loaded goods and won’t have the same long-lasting solution as a specially formulated solution like Elyplan anti-slip.
Are there regulations controlling anti-slip flooring in commercial vehicle applications?
There are regulations that deal with the selection of products based on the wet slip resistance classifications that are obtained according to the test methods that are published in AS/NZS 4586, Slip resistance classification of new pedestrian surface materials. HB 197 was also written to help with the transition from AS/NZS 3661.1, Slip resistance of pedestrian surfaces – Requirements. Anti-slip flooring in vehicles may also be subject to workplace health and safety regulations when used for logistics vehicles.
