walking on metal

Have you done a roof, or are you going to work for someone? My guys were whatever they are comfortable with....one wears Sketcher boots.....leather soled...what they have in common is they are all lightweight guys....metal is treacherous when dusty.

Irregardless of shoe brand, make sure the sole does not pick up gravel or sand, which can scratch the metal finish coating.

If a significant amount of walking on certain panel areas is required, then lay out some old foam cusions to minimize totally the potential for harming the surface.
