Anti-Skid Road Plates

Forming part of our Ground Protection range, our anti skid road plates offer high friction for an increased level of grip; improving safety on site.

Holding Down Bolts are available for fixing to the surface, to ensure there is no movement when vehicles are crossing or turning.

The bolts are simply drilled into the road surface and come in three parts: holding down bolt, steel collar and plastic cap (to protect bolt).

Additional Information

  • The gripped surface substantially reduces the risk of trips and falls in very wet or muddy conditions
  • Provides extra support for foot and vehicle traffic
  • Choose from a range of sizes
  • Available with holding down bolts for additional security
  • Stackable for efficient storage

Manufactured from high-strength steel, our anti skid Road Plates come with a high-friction, textured surface helping to keep your team and the public stay safe.

Anti Skid Road Plates with Gripped Surface to Prevent Slips and Skids

Additional Considerations

Both steel and anti-skid road plates require an appropriately qualified person to calculate the required size and thickness of the steel road plate needed. The types and size of traffic should also be carefully considered:

  • For pedestrians: 13mm thickness road plate
  • For vehicles: 20mm-25mm road plate thickness

Road plates and trench covers will need securing to the road surface to ensure they remain firmly in place whilst in use.

We recommend you minimise any change in road level by sinking them into the surface so that they sit flush or by creating a ramp. If this is not possible we encourage you to place clear warning signs to advise of any lip or ridge that could cause a hazard to drivers, cyclists or pedestrians.
