Plant security and workplace safety

Emergency exit markings for industrial areas

Workplace law with technical rules for workplaces (workplace guidelines) offer the most extensive and effective regulations for in-house emergency exits and escape routes.


ASR [workplace guideline] A3.4/3, “Safety lighting, optical safety guidance systems” requires workplaces to have a guidance system close to the floor because indicators and safety lighting mounted higher could be ineffective, for example with the formation of smoke.


The components of the emergency exit guidance system must be only 40 cm above the floor or applied directly to the floor in order to use the smoke-free layer.


The markings must continuously show the escape route to the safe area. Continuous marking can be achieved with individual symbols at intervals of 33 cm (3 per meter) (analogous to BGR 216 and DIN 67510 Part 3). These are applied to a white base coat applied in advance.

Our recommendation

For clear marking of escape routes, we recommend applying a special 3-component epoxy casting resin as an arrow sign in industrial areas with forklift traffic. The minimum luminance required by ASR A 3.4/3 at the point of use is thus achieved at workplaces (min. 50 lux, 1st hour excitation).

Extremely durable industrial markings made of modified epoxy resins

The marking systems we use are manufactured with specially developed 2- and 3-component systems based on modified epoxy resins. This material is the answer for the highest demands on mechanical and chemical stress.

Very high adhesion coupled with low wear. It is particularly suitable for sealed industrial floors, bituminous surfaces and alkaline substrates such as industrial concrete.

Surely this first information will result in further questions for you. We would be happy to arrange a personal appointment with you on site.



Abrasion, also known colloquially as wear and tear, describes the degeneration of surfaces from grinding, rolling, hitting, scratching, chemical, or thermal stresses.

carapax offers effective, durable, and cost-effective protection against early wear on all surfaces.

The use of carapax protects not only against mechanical wear but the protective coating is also resistant to acids, bases, organic wastes and other liquid chemical substances.



Corrosion damage affects almost all areas of infrastructure, from highways, bridges, and buildings to ships, oil and gas pipelines, chemical systems and water or wastewater lines. Such damage doesn’t result in significant economic losses, but rather pose a threat to public safety and the environment. Supply interruptions and plant downtime as well as extensive repairs result in significant financial expenses.

With the use of carapax, we stop the premature loss of value in systems, components, and buildings that comes from corrosion.

We guarantee effective, durable, and cost-efficient protection from a wide variety of the effects of corrosion.



Water penetration into substrates causes significant damage to the building structure. Protecting buildings and surfaces with an effective coating is one of the traditional areas of use for carapax. All of our coating systems are suitable for ensuring effective protection of the substrate from moisture.

Applied as a coating to flat roofs, basements, pools, or foundations, we always offer the right solution depending on individual circumstances, stresses, and physical requirements.



Applied as a non-slip coating, carapax offers not only protection against knocks and impacts, but it also ensures that all transported goods stay in their place.

In logistics or cargo, carapax protects the usable areas of trailers, trucks, and transporters. In addition, our system also extends the service life of transport boxes, pallets, and other loading systems.



carapax offers not only protective coatings but also coatings for thermal and sound insulation. This MID system is used for thermal insulation in roof trusses, facades, or floors in housing construction. The space to be insulated is filled in a dimensionally stable, complete, and gapless manner. This minimizes heat loss and damaging condensation is completely prevented.

In addition to thermal insulation, the system also meets all requirements for the properties of an excellent sound insulation because the stability and flexibility of the material remains throughout the entire service life.

carapax also meets the requirements for fire safety protection of Class E, is mold and mildew resistant, and has better insulation values than commercial insulation.
