The hotel is situated in Berlin's historic district of Mitte, which has now become a fashionable area. We were given the task of tackling the increasing number of slip and fall accidents on the steps to the pool. The technical challenge: the area to be coated was continuously exposed to water due to its proximity to the pool. The solution: SWISS GRIP® Water, a double coating based on a combination of SWISS GRIP® Bathroom and SWISS GRIP® Floor.
The area to be coated only needed to be closed off between 8 pm and 6 am, before being re-opened to guests. The hotel management is highly satisfied with the result; since then, no further accidents have occurred from falling on wet and slippery surfaces, and no complaints have been made to the hotel.
