Bauxite is a natural, very hard mineral used predominantly in road systems for its high-friction and anti-skid properties. The majority of public sector systems will specify that Calcined Bauxite be used in their road and pedestrian crossing installations.
Its hardness is also beneficial in internal and external industrial flooring applications where a very hard and long lasting mineral is required to give high-friction, anti-slip performance.
Pigmented Bauxite, which is produced in-house and is available in the main safety colours, is used to give an element of high visibility to anti-slip and anti-skid decorative surfaces.
It is used extensively in warehouses, loading areas, high visibility pedestrian and vehicular safety areas.
