Wet but slip proof: Steps and tiles at pool area.

Because of slip and fall accidents on the steps to the pool the antislip coatings bathroom and floor were applied.

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.
