Anti-Slip Treatment


What is Anti-Slip?

Our Anti-Slip process uses a uniquely formulated chemical compound designed to react with silica sand in the surface. This process creates a positive slip resistant environment without aesthetically changing the appearance of the surface. Because this treatment is not a topical application, it will not crack, peel, chip or discolour with age. There will be no tread patterns or wear patterns on the surface in high traffic areas. These treatments can be applied and reapplied without jeopardizing the structural composition of the surface material. Although not intended to be a cleaning agent, this process will also purge and brighten surfaces renewing its appearance.

A variety of silica sand based surfaces can be effective treated in this manner. These include ceramic tile, glazed brick, marble, polished stone, terrazzo, river rock, concrete, quarry tile, porcelain and enamel bathtubs & showers. This treatment can be conducted on interior surfaces (lobbies, hallways, washrooms, bathtubs, showers, kitchens, pool areas and change rooms), as well as exterior surfaces such as walkways, stairs and patios.

Each Anti-slip Treatment is applied by one of our certified technicians. Our technicians will conduct an assessment of the surface being treated and determine a customized ratio of treatment and SCOF (Static Co-Efficient of Friction) that will be created for your specific surface material in your specific geographical area. Once the product has been applied and neutralized, there is no need for curing or drying time. These treatments will be completed at a suitable time that will not impede your flow of business. Your daily operations can proceed as normal.

What is a Tread Pattern?

A Tread Pattern is best described as the fingerprint of the surface. All silica sand base surfaces have a smooth fingerprint. Anti-Slip® enters into the pores of the surface and microscopically changes that fingerprint by widening and deepening the pores. The end result?...the creation of a non-slippery tread pattern.

What is a SCOF?

The Static Coefficient of Friction between two solid surfaces is defined as the tangential force required to produce sliding divided by the normal force between the surfaces.

As adopted by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) & American Society of Testing and Materials (A.S.T.M)...

"A static anti-slip coefficient of friction of .50 or above is considered a safe walkway surface with a dry condition. A reading below .50 is considered an unsafe walkway surface."
