Making ramp and stairs anti-slip

Ramps and steps in the entrance of the house are slippery in wet weather and are treated anti-slip

Slippery steps and slippery ramps led the management to contact us. The ramp, which is located directly at the building entrance, is exposed to the elements and wet footwear carries water splashes and wetness onto the steps of the apartment building. The porcelain stoneware floor's resistance to treading was no longer given due to the decreasing static friction coefficient with moisture. In other words, the hallway was slippery and dangerous.

In one afternoon, the 126 steps were coated with anti-slip strips and the ramps over 17 square meters were made slip-resistant with the GriP spray system. With the slip resistance classes C and R11, the wet weather now has no chance to lead the residents on the black ice. SWISSGriP is weather-resistant and the finest technology from Switzerland.
