In almost all industries, accidents from tripping, slipping, and falling are an issue.

Every year the commercial economy is strained by

  • Approximately 255,000 workplace accidents (this more than 1,000 each work day);
  • Approximately 65,000 commuting accidents;
  • And approximately 40 fatal accidents.

There are other consequences in addition to the personal suffering of those affected:

  • Approximately EUR 330 million in medical treatment and rehabilitation costs for employer’s liability insurance associations;
  • Approximately EUR 8 billion in downtime costs for the economy.

The goal of the “Safer Footing” campaign is to reduce the rate of falling, slipping, and tripping accidents by at least 15%.

For this reason, the commercial employer’s liability insurance associations have jointly resolved to carry out a campaign in companies as well as in the public reduce accidents from tripping, slipping, and falling.

The result of the campaign:

26% fewer accidents from tripping, slipping, and falling.

In absolute numbers: in the commercial economy, a total of 191,000 workplace accidents occurred from tripping, slipping, or falling in the year 2022, but two years later there were only 141,000 such accidents.


The prevention continues....

Tripping, slipping, and falling accidents are the result of movement from people walking and running.
Often an insufficiently labeled walking or running path is the cause of the accidents.

The subject area “Flooring, Stairs” from the “Structural Installations” technical committee of the DGUV focuses on safe walking on traffic routes in inside and outside areas of industrial buildings. One area of focus is on the prevention of accidents from tripping, slipping, and falling, such as with warning markings.



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.
