Non-Skid is a unique combination of their standard PET material braided together with high-friction polymer filaments. Non-Skid is substantially less "slippery" than their regular PET, yet provides the same level of flexibility and protection from cable wear and abrasion.
Non-Skid is engineered primarily for wire and cable management on smooth floor, high traffic environments such as broadcast studios where someone might inadvertently step on a cable snake and slip.
As long as there's no excessive pressure on the cables protected with Non-Skid, the entire snake glides easily and quietly along the floor. When local pressure is applied, such as when someone steps on the cable, the high friction material comes in contact with the floor and reduces the possibility of the cable sliding out from underfoot.
