Our Products: Specialty Flooring
A light in the darkness
RD Weis Companies provides high-visibility photoluminescent and anti-slip step edge and path marking systems. Activated by natural or artificial light, the systems emit a steady glow guiding people safely up steps and through passages — in all conditions. The combination of the photoluminescent strip and the anti-slip mat provides superior step edge definition.
Our photoluminescent emergency egress lighting systems fulfill the supplementary emergency lighting requirements of New York City RS6.1
These excellent emergency egress products are durable and withstand continuous foot traffic and weathering.
Photoluminescent technology can be used to supplement electrical emergency lighting systems as the products are fail-safe, operate immediately, and do not require ongoing maintenance.
Prevent slips and falls or provide safe and efficient access for thousands — the hard-wearing anti-slip material provides all weather protection from slips and falls. With their UV resistance the products can be installed indoors and out.
Our products are charged by whatever light is available in the environment and are made with recycled aluminum and a carbon neutral energy supplier. All products are non toxic and non radioactive and can be readily recycled.
Wire management for buildings that work
Our Access Flooring protects the sensitive equipment and wiring of high-traffic areas such as nursing stations – and prevents slips and falls due to exposed cables
The modern hospital or medical office needs to organize a tremendous amount of cables and wires in order to accommodate computer networks, telephones, faxes, and general electric appliances. Designed to protect sensitive data and electrical wiring, our system offers:
- Total flexibility and capacity
- The lowest profile available in two heights: 1.6" high (40 mm) and 2.75" high (70 mm)
- Large cable capacity with easy access
- Zinc-plated, all-steel construction — satisfies fire regulations
- Quick-connect installation means lower labor costs and easy moves, adds, and changes
- Modular base unit system connects quickly without glue, screws or fasteners
- Modular grid design allows for no-tool, easy-access wire management
- The only low-profile system listed in the GreenSpec Directory of sustainable building products
- Contributes designers and building owners LEED points in four categories
- 100% recyclable
- Convenient floor covering: modular carpet, VCT, wood, or other tiles
Building the future with environmentally sustainable materials and technologies
Helping you save with sustainable flooring
Linoleum is made entirely of renewable raw materials: linseed oil, cork powders, tree resin, wood flour, and clay pigments, with jute backing.
Linoleum is relatively easy to maintain and gives you a quiet, warm, cushioned surface underfoot. With its lengthy lifecycle, inherent coloration, and durability, linoleum presents a excellent floor for many environments.
Cork is a pure, natural material that does not out-gas or shed micro-fibers — wonderful for your indoor air quality. It comes from a tree whose bark splits naturally every 9 to 15 years and can be safely harvested, causing no harm to the tree.
Cork flooring is not only warm to walk on and extremely quiet, with natural sound-absorbing qualities, but also hypoallergenic and naturally resistant to mold and mildew. Installation is similar to that of hardwood flooring, and cork flooring can be finished off with urethane, vinyl, wax, or oil.
Bamboo is a fast-growing grass. Since it matures from sprouting to harvesting in three to five years, an acre of bamboo can provide significantly more flooring materials than an acre of trees.
Bamboo is eco-friendly, flame resistant, dimensionally stable, harder than many popular wood flooring species, and more impervious to moisture. Sold in planks, bamboo flooring is installed much like engineered hardwood floors — either be nailed or glued down, or floated over a wide variety of sub-floors.
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) flooring is for contractors, designers, and facilities managers in charge of rooms for the manufacture, assembly, or use of sensitive electronic components.
ESD flooring — vinyl, epoxy, carpet, or rubber — grounds static charges from the human body to earth before they can damage sensitive equipment or create a disastrous spark in a highly flammable area.
