Stainless Wedgewire Heelsafe® Anti-Slip

It is suited to light duty applications such as indoors or external pedestrian traffic areas, and meets high safety standards for wheelchairs and walking canes. The slip resistant single raised mechanical nodes make it ideal for use in bathrooms and kitchens.
