Flooring: Slip-resistant Flooring Options


Here’s a list of some slip-resistant flooring options:

Floor and Step Coverings

Through the use of coverings, non-slip surfaces can be fabricated on flat walkways. To fit different area lengths and widths and are attached to the substrate by mechanical fasteners or adhesives, these can be customized.

Coatings

Particularly convenient to large areas and are applied to conventional floorings, like as concrete, wood, and metal for anti-slip floor coatings, or paints. The place boots are worn and there is forklift or pallet-truck traffic, coatings provide significant traction and are often used in industrial, factory and warehouse workplaces. Coatings generate a visible, textured surface which can be used on interior and exterior surfaces. Coatings may be clear or colored.

Non-slip treatments have a chemical that escalates the roughness of the floor surface in contrast to coatings, which produce a surface texture on top of the substrate.

Treatments

Treatments are usually applied to hard surfaces that become exceedingly slippery when wet. Ceramic, granite, terrazzo and vinyl, concrete and porcelain tile are products where treatment is commonly applied.

The floor maintains its original appearance with the application of treatments. For businesses and organizations that serve the public, applying treatments makes flooring an attractive option.

Treatments eliminate the trips that happen due to a change in floor surface, which a mat or carpeting might cause is another advantage of coatings and treatments.

Mats and Tiles

Anti-slip mats and tiles, are usually produced with the presence of rubber, PVC or polyurethane and have a grit surface of a hard substance which may be interlocked to fit together during installation.

To raise the worker up off the wet, slippery floor and, at the same time, permits spilled fluids to drain down through holes or deep ridges while the grit surface stays dry is where anti-slip mats and tiles are often utilized.

Tapes

Tapes can be installed over irregular surfaces which is the big advantage of anti-slip tapes. Tapes are usually used on construction sites and scaffolding planks. Tapes come in different widths and lengths and in varying grit sizes and strengths. Tapes need to be repaired or replaced on a regular basis but are low-priced and can be fixed immediately.
