Grip Guard Non-Slip Floor Safety - In and Around the Home
Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common cause of injuries in the home; 85% of these accidents are preventable. These accidents present a real and present risk to families and friends both indoors and outside the home.
Indoor wet areas such bathrooms, showers, kitchens, laundries and entry foyers can all become dangerously slippery when they become wet. Often the ceramic, porcelain, granite, marble or terrazzo tiles are safe in dry conditions but lack slip resistance when they become wet. Outdoor areas such as verandahs, alfresco areas, footpaths, swimming pool surrounds and driveways are exposed to the elements and therefore need to be paved with non-slip tiles, stone or concrete to enhance safety for family and visitors.
If indoor/outdoor tiles or stone lack adequate slip resistance, Grip Guard non-slip floor safety treatment can be utilised to dramatically increase the grip of the floor without changing its appearance – protecting homeowners’ investments in quality floor surfaces. Floors treated with Grip Guard non-slip floor treatment retain their colour, shine and lustre but are much safer following the application. And, because it is not an anti-slip coating, it will not wear away – floors retain their slip resistance for years to come.
Homeowners who are concerned that floor or outdoor areas are slippery can request an obligation free slip resistance test to determine the safety of indoor or outdoor pedestrian areas. Grip Guard non-slip representatives are available in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Darwin and selected regional areas to provide up to date floor safety advice and services.
