6 Outstanding Uses for Anti-Skid Materials You’ve Never Considered

As the leading provider of non-skid and anti-skid materials, Frank Lowe regularly creates die cut and adhesive laminated pads for a variety of applications. Since there are hardly ever any one-size-fits-all solutions, we'll carefully listen to your application needs and suggest the optimum anti-skid material, such as:

  • Die cut foam anti-skid materials,
  • Die cut vinyl anti-skid materials,
  • Die cut sponge anti-skid materials,
  • Die cut cork anti-skid materials, or
  • Die cut rubber anti-skid materials.

Just as the name suggests, these materials are excellent for preventing skidding, shifting, or movement. Surprisingly, non-skid materials have applications that most people never consider. Continue reading to explore a few lesser-known, but outstanding uses for multi-faceted, anti-skid materials.  

Improving Consumer Products Such as Anti-Skid Materials

Anti-skid materials and consumer products go together like hammer and nails. Non-skid components are often equipped with adhesive backing for easy mounting to your products.

To prevent consumer products from sliding, it's best to sure up your product from the beginning with the right anti-skid materials.

Anti-Skid Materials Such as` Cork Backing on Coasters

Coasters are used to protect tables and other surfaces from unsightly watermarks and damage. Most often, coasters are used to hold hot beverages. Although the coaster is designed to protect the surface underneath, non-skid materials, such as cork, can be added to further protect end users from a shifting coaster, spilled hot beverage, and the resulting burns.  

Keep Trivets in Place with Anti-Skid Materials

Trivets are placed between the counter or kitchen table and hot serving bowls or dishes to absorb the heat. However, if the trivet fails to stay in place, it could cause damage to much more than the underlying surface. It could result in extensive burns and injuries to the consumer.

Stabilizing Anti-Vibration Devices with Anti-Skid Materials

At Frank Lowe, we regularly work with manufacturers of medical devices and other equipment who need anti-vibration material for mounting their devices. The anti-vibration properties also reduce the transmission of noise and shock. We’ve customized die cut foam and die cut rubber anti-skid components to stabilize the product and enhance the dampening abilities.

Leveling the Field with Anti-Skid Components

Levelers are the proven solution for leveling the playing field for both small and large devices, appliances, and furniture. They can be used on anything from large industrial equipment and mainframes to test devices and peripherals. Simply put, there are leveling mounts and feet for almost every item and every weight.

Although levelers are generally comprised of a stem and a base, an anti-skid rubber component can transform your product into a much stabler solution. Best of all, the experts at Frank Lowe can help you find the perfect anti-skid material based on the weight and size of the product the leveler is supporting.

Keeping Products on Display Racks with Non-Skid Materials

Although seldom considered, the shelving on display racks is critical to any storefront, warehouse, or any other location where products, materials, or items are regularly stored or displayed. If the items are liquid or potentially hazardous, the shelving becomes even more important.

At Frank Lowe, we can die cut anti-skid materials from vinyl, sponge, cork, foam, and rubber to the exact size and dimensions of your product shelf. We will work with you to understand the most likely items to be stored on the shelving, and we'll suggest ideal material based on the application. Adding anti-skid materials to your product shelving is a relatively inexpensive way to mitigate hazards, improve safety and minimize product breakage.
