Slippery stone floor becomes anti-slip afterwards.

Sustainable renovation: Stone floors in outdoor areas with anti-slip coating.

Stone floors in outdoor areas are mainly used on terraces or as path surfaces. If the flooring, which usually consists of slabs, is laid correctly and has the appropriate slip resistance, they are slip-resistant. However, there are conditions that need to be taken into account so that the stone surface does not become slippery after rain.

For example, if the slope of the surface is missing and it is a larger area, such as on a terrace or an entrance area, rainwater cannot drain away. A slope of 2% is recommended as a guideline. In addition, a layer of algae and moss soon forms if stone slabs lie in the shade. Regular cleaning and scrubbing of the tile surfaces can remedy this. It is not environmentally friendly but easier if chemical cleaning agents are used to remove algae and green coverings. Other causes of slippery outdoor flagstones can also be insufficient slip resistance (slip resistance class) or if the slip resistance of the surface has been worn away by wear and weather.

In the entrance area, courtyard and property path of the apartment building, the floor tiles were slippery when wet. Residents and visitors to the house were therefore in constant danger of slipping (in the truest sense of the word). GriP Safety Coatings was contacted and coated the surfaces with GriP anti-slip Floor as a slip-resistant solution. The floor panels can now be walked on without slipping - even in the rain.

SWISS GriP anti-slip Coating is the environmentally friendly alternative for slippery tiles: GriP eliminates the need for constant cleaning with expensive chemical products. In addition, GriP anti-slip ensures sustainability: instead of tearing out worn tiles or tiles that are too slippery from the start and replacing them with new tiles, they are made usable again with the GriP safety coating. Slippery stone floors in outdoor areas are given a anti-slip coating afterwards. SWISS-GriP is the anti-slip solution for sustainable renovations.
