Traction Control Flooring

Goldray's Traction Control ceramic frit, also called TC Frit, is ideal for flooring, stairs and skylights. The texture has a rough consistency, similar to that of a medium-grain sandpaper. When applied in a definitive pattern, TC Frit is not only highly functional, but also provides decorative appeal. The aggressive traction properties of this product yield a superior slip coefficient, a safety feature for glass flooring.

Goldray's Traction Control Ceramic Frit flooring is made using textured enamel permanently fused to the glass to give it a slip-resistant surface. Traction Control Frit is always applied to the first surface of a monolithic or laminated unit.

This product is offered in standard or custom patterns to give flexibility to the degree of translucency and traction control required for anti-slip glass. Goldray offers a wide selection of in-house patterns, however, if there is a specific request our comprehensive graphics department is available to create custom patterns.
