Roofing systems supplier Gaco Western has developed a silicone-based coating alternative to conventional rooftop walkway mats.

Unlike mats, solvent-free GacoFlex WalkPad “becomes an integral part of the roof and cannot blow off,” according to the manufacturer.

Features and Application

Available in high-visibility yellow only, the coating contains a thickening agent for durability and tear resistance; yellow-quartz granules provide good traction for pedestrian maintenance traffic, the company says.

The silicone-based coating includes yellow-quartz granules for traction and a thickening agent for durability, the manufacturer reports.

The product can be applied with a brush, trowel or roller.

Seattle-based Gaco Western supplies specialty coatings for roof, pedestrian and traffic decking; and spray polyurethane foam insulation.
