No matter your exterior non-skid flooring needs, I-Tech Armor Plate and I-Tech Armor Plated Structural Decking will work on a wide variety of applications where slip resistance is needed. Whether you’re covering or resurfacing decks, boardwalks, bridges, docks or stages, Innovative Panel Technologies’ exclusive I-Tech Armor Plate can be matched to any of our existing products to deliver non-skid properties necessary in wet or dry conditions along with a range of other attributes to meet your specific application and setting. For new construction, use Armor Plated Structural Decking in place of lumber.
I-Tech Armor Plate combines an aluminum composite panel (ACP) to a high-performance Polypropylene (PP) laminate with an exclusive slip-resistant finish. The ACP substrate, as well as the PP laminate, are proven materials used for a wide variety of exterior applications. I-Tech Armor Plated Structural Decking combines our Armor Plate with a preservative treated plywood core and an ACP backer to create a composite panel with superior structural characteristics. Rugged, long-lasting and attractive, these panels are available in a range of colors, sizes, and attributes tailored to your specific application.
I-Tech Armor Plate and Armor Plated Structural Decking exceed OSHA (Occupational Health & Safety Administration) recommendations and ADAAG (Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines) standards. OSHA recommends for flat surfaces a minimum Coefficient of Friction (COF) of 0.5 while ADAAG minimum standard for COF is 0.6. I-Tech Armor Plate and Armor Plated Structural Decking achieved a COF of 0.80 in testing using the Horizontal Dynamometer Pull-Meter Method conducted by Progressive Engineering. I-Tech Armor Plate and I-Tech Armor Plated Structural Decking also exceed the ADAAG COF standard for use in ramps which is 0.80. Surfaces are also available for either panel that offer excellent slip resistance even while the surface is wet.
Like all I-Tech materials, I-Tech Armor Plate and I-Tech Armor Plated Structural Decking provide a superior wear surface, feature a 100% moisture barrier that is impervious to most chemicals with the added benefit of providing a surface that will retain its color and characteristics for years to come in your exterior applications.
Innovative Panel Technologies can provide the guidance, assistance and experience you need in selecting the appropriate panel for your specific application. Issues related to wear, surfaces that will be covered, useful life and maintenance can and should be discussed in meeting your requirements and needs precisely.
