Slips and falls are a major liability issue for businesses and homeowners alike as personal injury suits can be costly.
Anti-slip flooring is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve the current grip of your floor.
Slippery floors pose numerous risks. Whether it’s a residential or commercial property, it’s essential to ensure that your floors are safe. If you don’t have anti-slip flooring on your current surfaces, you may be open to potential litigation from individuals who injure themselves on your property. Litigation is both expensive and time-consuming— it can risk the livelihood of your business and your family.
In addition, if you operate a commercial property, you’ll need to cover the costs of injured employees if an accident occurs at work. This can also result in higher insurance premiums if you have commercial liability insurance0 on your current property.
If you’re looking at a range of different options to reduce the slipperiness of your floors, you’re probably wondering: why anti-slip flooring? Below we’ll take a look at some of the primary benefits associated with this type of slip solution.
If you’re looking for anti-slip flooring that doesn’t require ongoing investment, this is a perfect choice. You won’t need to employ any special maintenance techniques. Also, you can clean the flooring using standard cleaning techniques— there’s no need to adjust your current maintenance techniques.
However, if you do want to ensure your floor remains up to standard, we have a floor maintenance program that takes the stress out of the process!
Some types of flooring modification result in negative aesthetic results for the flooring. If you’ve paid a lot of money for your current floor, chances are you don’t want to ruin the aesthetic appeal of your investment.
Using our anti-slip flooring, you won’t notice any difference in your floor’s current appearance.
If you want additional assurances that your floor is now slip-resistant, we provide all our customers with a slip-resistance warranty that guarantees the surface of your new floor is resistant to accidents.
Whether you operate a commercial property, or you want anti-slip flooring in your home, it’s essential to choose a process that doesn’t take long. If you select a company or method that takes weeks to implement, it may kill your current productivity.
Our process only takes a matter of hours, and we’re happy to carry out the procedure inside or outside of business hours.
Before we start applying your new flooring grip, we’ll clean and prepare your surface to remove any contaminants that may cause issues during the installation process. We’ll prepare the surface of your floor with a pressure sprayer.
We’ll test your surfaces to decide the optimal amount of grip that needs to be activated, then apply and activate the anti-slip coating.
Once the amount of resistance is achieved, we’ll neutralise the grip, and your floor is ready to go!
The list of reported slip/fall accidents in the workplace, shopping areas, supermarkets, leisure and sports centres, swimming pools etc is endless.
Slip/fall accidents rank second to road traffic accidents as the highest cause of personal injury, causing serious pain, suffering and even death.
A careless approach to safety requirements and lack of standards in the most obvious situations will be considered negligence – the legal definition of which is ‘failure to use a reasonable amount of care when such failure results in injury or damage to another’.
Failure to acknowledge the pitfalls and take steps to prevent accidents is expensive and usually involves high compensation under public and employer liability insurance.
The proactive approach to accident prevention is positive, responsible and cost-effective and must be a priority in the daily running of the business.
