Selby, Battersby & Co.'s N e w Flooring C o m b i n e s U n i q u e S a f e t y Features

Safety is the keyword in a new resin flooring, Selbaglo, developed by Selby, Battersby & Co., Philadelphia, Pa., m a n u f a c t u r e r of building and marine products.

Perhaps the most outstanding and newsworthy feature of the Selbaglo is its ability to glow in the dark, allowing people to find their way out of buildings and other structures in the event of a power failure.

Selbaglo, which is trowel-applied and requires no terrazzo grinding equipment, has been carefully designed as a safety-oriented decorative flooring. It has excellent non-slip qualities, is resistant to fire as well as a wide variety of chemicals, and meets the tough p h y s i c a l s t a n d a r d s of Federal Specification MIL-D-3134. Now, its luminescent c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s make Selbaglo one of the most unique flooring systems in the industry.

The product is especially suitable in areas where safety is a single source for your radar needs. For example, we can install and maintain a Krupp-Atlas radar with basic collision avoidance features for early warning.

And compass repeater for continuous true bearing. And directconnect to interchangeable 25 KW X-band (3 cm) or 30 KW S-band (10 cm) transmitter.
