The s:tek high-performance floor protection panels from securatek are being tested and used more and more frequently in forestry and forestry work for environmentally friendly and soil-friendly timber harvesting processes and forest logistics. The demands placed on the ground protection plates when used in timber harvesting or logging are more extreme than in almost any other application, so that only plastic plates of the highest quality can withstand these tough conditions.
TÜV tested high performance floor protection plates from Securatek
This is exactly where the TÜV tested s:tek floor protection plate made of HDPE high performance plastic scores. The plates bend without breaking, are tested to a compressive strength of 1,377 t/m2 and have a proven slip resistance of R10 or R11, depending on the surface.
