Quantum Special has been developed to cover a wide range of safety requirements. The mats were designed with a kinetic friction coefficient of 0.80 (providing a guaranteed minimum 0.60 coefficient in typical usage).

A selection of material thicknesses offer very good maximum surface load values ranging from 125 to 200 t/m , allowing exact adaptation to your individual load securing requirements.

As with all Quantum anti-slip mats, SPECIAL anti-slip mats can be re-used many times until they reach the replacement state of wear.

Quantum Special is available pre-cut in strips or sheets, in a variety of sizes and thicknesses. The material is also available for sale in complete rolls or in special cut sizes, to order. Please enquire.

Anti-Slip Matting - the new standard for goods transport in Europe

Quantum anti-slip mats are especially designed for low-cost, efficient protection of products during transportation e.g. by road, rail, sea and air.

Typically transported goods are held in place on the transport vehicle by the friction provided by Quantum anti-slip mats and are further secured by lashing straps. The high friction coefficient of the anti-slip mats provides an outstanding grip on even the smoothest surfaces, practically eliminating shifting or slipping during transport.

  • Quantum Anti-Slip products can solve many load securing problems.
  • A significant number of heavy goods vehicle accidents are caused by incorrectly or insufficiently secured loads.
  • Anti-Slip Matting can provide up to 60% of load securing requirements.
  • Very Easy and Quick to use, saving time and money in loading.
  • Reduces the number of lashing straps needed for load securing.
  • Be safer with Quantum Anti-Slip Matting.

Unforeseen situations – such as abrupt changes of direction, swerving to avoid hazards, sudden braking or collisions can cause very high inertial and centrifugal forces.

Means used for securing loads must therefore provide the necessary holding power to keep the load in place in such situations.

According to the applicable regulations for motor vehicle traffic, every load must be secured with 80% of it’s weight toward the front and 50% toward the sides and back.

Sufficient load securing implies the need to prevent the load from moving due to centrifugal and mass forces, which can occur especially during braking or in cornering.

The increased friction provided by Quantum anti-slip mats also minimises the required tension of lashing straps. This is of particular benefit when transporting items such as panels, pipes, plasterboard or any other products which can compress or deform under loading stress.

The high quality of Quantum anti-slip mats and their outstanding contribution to transport safety are evidenced by their superb physical properties.

Quantum anti-slip mats have a proven track record established over many years of reliable service for companies all over the world.

In other words... with anti-slip mats from Quantum, you know you’re on the safe side!

Coefficients of friction

Friction Testing

Rubbertech Anti-Slip Material

The procedure for determining coefficients of friction applies in particular to securing loads on road vehicles and can also be applied to other means of transportation (such as railways, ships, aircraft, combined transportation) when adapted to the loading principles applicable in such cases.

Sliding Friction

tested logoThe resistance to applied forces when there is simultaneous relative movement between a body and an underlying surface.

Static Friction

Friction in which the forces acting on the bodies are not sufficient to bring about a relative movement between a body and another it is resting on.
