Walker Glass has introduced its first line of anti-slip acid-etched glass products made in North America.

July 6, 2011 – Walker Glass is proud to introduce its first line of anti-slip acid-etched glass products made in North America.

Walker Textures Traction surface provides an unusual design option on glass by combining discretion and security without impeding the natural flow of light. The slip resistant properties of Traction glass are entirely derived through acid etching, whereby portions of the glass surface are removed to varying depths by a controlled process.


Looks like the other shoe dropped.


Traction glass provides a high coefficient of slip resistance based on two recognized test methods, namely, ANSI/NFSI B101.1 and ASTM C1028. The tests were conducted by an independent testing facility, the Tile Council of North America.   
“Glass flooring is one of the fastest growing application segments in the industry. The durability of our acid-etched surface is unmatched by other processes. We are very excited to launch our first patterns in a line-up that will surely expand.” says Ross Christie, vice-president of sales and marketing.
The Nuance Traction line will be offered in clear and low-iron glass in thicknesses from six to 12 mm in a standard size of 96 by 130 inches. The patterns of this 400 series are made using two acid-etched finishes, Opaque and Satin. Walker Textures samples can be ordered online .
