PVC tiles are very popular. PVC flooring is softer and warmer than ceramic or stone and in many cases can be laid without gluing. The decors of the PVC sheets are also available in stone, wood 3d optics.
Like other floor coverings, slips occur time and again in practice despite the stated slip resistance classes. Particularly when it is wet outside or in wet rooms, the coefficient of static friction is reduced and the surface becomes slippery.
The entrance to a private house is covered with large PVC tiles in stone look. However, in morning dew and wet weather, the otherwise slip-resistant floor tiles became extremely slippery. Using the GriP spray system, the PVC flooring was made slip-resistant. The transparent anti-slip coating has slip resistance class C and R11, and residents can now use the building's corridor without slipping.
