Anti-Slip Texture with VR® Footwear Products
When developing our protective footwear products, special attention was given to traction in wet environments. Many solutions to the problem were considered, including treads, rubber coatings and solid additives.
Our solution maintains the integrity of the VR® barrier by using a special fabrication method that provides texture to the product without the need for additional materials. The texture we’ve integrated into our barrier material is akin to the adhesive traction strips found on exterior walkways around the world.
Many users turn the texture to the inside—against the sole of the shoe or boot—for best traction in slippery environments. This gives the sole of the shoe a firm grip on the VR® footwear. Others use it with the texture on the outside depending on footwear and flooring surface conditions.
