Anti-Slip Surface Solutions

We specialise in changing existing ‘slippery-when-wet floors’ to ‘safe to walk on-when wet’ floors.

Slip Resistance Testing
We conduct slip resistance testing and provide reports in Pendulum Test Values.

Pre-works Cleaning
We provide a pre-works deep cleaning service to remove detergent and other residue. Sometimes, simple deep cleaning will increase the slip resistance of a surface without the need to apply an anti-slip treatment

Anti-Slip Chemical Etch
Anti-slip chemical etch with a PTV 36+, we clean the floor, apply a diluted chemical etch to the surface and then rinse with clean water and vacuum it off (floor available immediately on completion).

This anti-slip treatment can be used on stone and tiled surfaces.

Skid Proof Nano Hone Anti-Slip
We gently abrade hard surfaces with diamond encrusted resin pads and water to develop PTVs 36+ (floor available immediately on completion).

Anti-Slip Film
This is a simple but effective product which is ideal for baths, showers, tiled floors, glass floors and stairs with a PTV 38.

Clean and Seal
We deep clean and seal porous (concrete, pavers, stone etc.) surfaces which can increase the slip resistance of many floors without chemical or mechanical

Floor Markings/Safe Pedestrian Walkways
We apply coloured, anti-slip pedestrian walkways to car park and factory floors.

Floor Scratch Prevention
Dr. Schutz Scratchnomore range of furniture gliders will prevent scratching of tiled, timber, stone and vinyl floors.

  • Extract from the Health and Safety Authority Website

  • Every working day in Ireland more than three people are hurt in work-related slips
  • 23% of those who slip are off work for over one month
  • People generally slip because of contaminated surfaces or contaminated footwear

People generally slip on wet surfaces or wet shoes, not clean dry surfaces.

A slip-resistant surface need not be rough and difficult to clean. “The ability to clean a floor to a hygienic standard is not influenced by the slip resistance” and “clean-ability should not be a barrier to the use of slip resistant flooring in foreseeably wet or contaminated work areas” (HSL UK RR889)

The Law on Slippery Surfaces

The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act requires safe access, safe systems of work, risk assessment, and a safety statement. The General Application Regulations require pedestrian surfaces not to be slippery. For construction, the Construction Safety Regulations require that the floor of all indoor workstations is fixed, stable and not slippery.

Slip Risk Factors

Slips generally involve 3 risk factors:

  • Slippery Surface
  • Contamination
  • Pedestrian
