Explore the most effective non-slip flooring solutions by delving into the answers to your frequently asked questions. At Kleenit we understand commercial areas, garages and warehouses need practical non slip flooring with the right protection. But, what’s the best option to ensure a safe step? We’ve taken a comprehensive look into non slip flooring from materials to maintenance, safeguarding patrons to epoxy flooring, so you can find everything you need to make the right non slip choice.  

First thing’s first: What is Non Slip Flooring?

Non slip flooring, also known as anti slip flooring, is a type of flooring material specifically designed to reduce the risk of slips and falls. Non slip flooring provides enhanced traction and grip underfoot, making it less slippery and safer, especially in areas prone to moisture, spills, or heavy foot traffic. Non slip flooring can be material based or include a treatment coating for that extra anti slip effect. 

What is the best non slip surface? 

The ultimate non slip surfaces include materials like rubber, cork, carpet or textured tiles and vinyl. These materials offer good traction and are less likely to become slippery when exposed to moisture. Kleenit’s anti slip flooring coating treatments are a proactive way to ensure safe steps in areas prone to moisture or spills. Kleenit’s anti slip coating creates a roughened textured surface to safeguard a workplace, factory, warehouse or poolside. Kleenit regularly installs non slip industrial and epoxy flooring for commercial areas. 

What is Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy flooring is a type of surface coating created by mixing epoxy resin with a hardening agent. When applied to a concrete or other solid substrate, this mixture forms a strong, durable, and chemically resistant surface. Epoxy flooring is commonly used in industrial settings such as, garages, warehouses and commercial spaces. Epoxy flooring offers a high gloss finish, easy maintenance and provides a protective surface. 

How is Epoxy flooring non slip? 

The best way to ensure epoxy flooring is non slip is by adding substances like silica, sand, or aluminium oxide to the epoxy resin mixture. These materials create texture, enhancing grip and reducing slipperiness when coated on surfaces. These additives produce a textured surface with enhanced traction, safeguarding the floor and patrons. 

Does Epoxy Flooring get slippery when wet? 

Epoxy flooring can become slippery when wet if they don’t have non slip additives. It’s highly important to apply non slip materials to all epoxy flooring to significantly improve traction and safety in wet conditions or in high spillage areas. It’s a good idea to properly coat bathrooms with epoxy resin non slip flooring for added safety in the workplace.

What is the best non slip flooring for Seniors? 

Along with epoxy resin non slip flooring the best option for seniors is vinyl flooring with a textured surface. Vinyl flooring offers a soft but secure footing for seniors, reducing the risk of slips and falls. Vinyl planks are plastic and soft, cushioning any dent or heavy impacts. Plus, vinyl planks are 100% waterproof and often stain-resistant. 

With a range of materials to ensure a safe step, it’s clear to see anti slip treatments offer a proactive approach to safeguarding your workplace and patrons. Kleenit’s non slip flooring coating options can elevate safety and functionality at any commercial space. Kleenit’s non slip flooring options ensure a safe step with efficiency, affordability, and convenience.
