Using Durbar®

Durbar is a non-slip raised pattern floor plate of integral manufacture (the pattern is rolled in not welded). The "tear drop" studs are distributed to give maximum slip resistance in a variety of applications whilst ensuring a free draining surface.

The nominal gauge of Durbar is the thickness of the plain plate exclusive of pattern.
