The Renaissance Barcelona Fira Hotel is conveniently located at the Plaza Europa in Barcelona. Its two 110-meter-high towers are connected by a restaurant with spectacular panoramic views and a panoramic terrace overlooking Barcelona.
The bathtubs and shower trays are made of the mineral-organic composite material Corian®. To protect guests from slipping accidents in the bathroom, a non-slip solution was sought for the bathroom tubs. Shower trays and bathtub liners were out of the question, as they get dirty quickly and are time-consuming to clean. In addition, bathtub liners do not meet hygienic and aesthetic standards. The hotel came across the safety coatings from GriP Safety Coatings. SWISS GriP Anti-Slip is transparent, easy to clean, insensitive to disinfectants and offers slip resistance class C. All 356 bathrooms in the Design Hotel have been made non-slip with SWISS GriP Anti-Slip Bathrooms. During a training course, the building technicians were trained to apply GriP anti-slip coatings themselves.
The chosen anti-slip coating for the hotel's shower and bath tubs is also easy to clean and has won the ISH "Bathrooms for Generations" award.
