  • Publication number: 20180355617
    Abstract: There is provided a slip resistant sheet material for roofing having a thickness and being adapted for a worker to walk thereon in his footwear. The slip resistant sheet material comprises a single layer of non-woven material comprising surface texture transverse to the thickness of the slip resistance material whereby, when the worker walks on the slip resistant non-woven sheet material, there exists friction between the footwear and the surface texture in the slip resistant non-woven sheet material thereby providing slip resistance.

  • Publication number: 20180066435
    Abstract: The present document describes a slip resistant sheet material for roofing having a thickness and being adapted for a worker to walk thereon in his footwear. The slip resistant sheet material comprises a base layer and a thermoplastic layer affixed to the base layer. The thermoplastic layer comprises embossments and corresponding depressions transverse to the thickness of the slip resistance material whereby, when the worker walks on the slip resistant sheet material, there exists friction between the footwear and the embossments in the thermoplastic layer thereby providing slip resistance.

  • Publication number: 20160123015
    Abstract: The present document describes a slip resistant sheet material for roofing having a thickness and being adapted for a worker to walk thereon in his footwear. The slip resistant sheet material comprises a base layer and a thermoplastic layer affixed to the base layer. The base layer and the thermoplastic layer define projections and corresponding depressions transversely to the thickness of the slip resistance material whereby, when the worker walks on the slip resistant sheet material, there exists friction between the footwear and a combination comprising the projections and the thermoplastic layer thereby providing slip resistance.

  • Patent number: 7912637
    Abstract: Driving directions can be helpful if in addition to spatial information, landmark information is provided. Landmarks assist in adding context to directions as well as allowing for a greater likelihood of success of an operator following directions. There can be employment of physical identification of landmarks as well as processing regarding the utility of a landmark in regards to driving directions. Driving directions can be highly useful if integrated landmarks relate to knowledge possessed by an operator of a vehicle. Landmark based driving direction can be integrated with advertisements that relate to the directions.
