Floor tiles in gastronomy kitchens must be hard-wearing: Water, grease, food residues and, in addition, employees who are constantly standing and walking on the walkways. In order to carry out their work in a concentrated manner, kitchen staff must be able to walk without slipping. A slip in an environment with sharp knives, hot dishes and boiling liquids like water and oil can be life-threatening.
Thus, most national occupational safety regulations require sturdy, slip-proof tiles in professional kitchens. When the tiles are installed, they still meet the advertised standards, but with the daily hustle and bustle, the legally regulated slip resistance is often no longer given after a few weeks or at the latest after a few months. So what to do? Tear out the tiles and replace them with other slip-proof tiles, which in turn only practically guarantee slip-proof properties for a limited period of time? Or lay anti-slide mats, which not only can become further tripping hazards during the hectic rush, but also have to be cleaned at great expense?
The management of Witerra Golfland AG decided on a third solution for their catering kitchen: the sustainable and durable SWISSGriP coating. The porcelain stoneware tiles were sprayed with GriP AntiSlip in just a few hours and were completely accessible again after the drying time of another 12 hours.
