The anti-slip coating we developed will adhere to any stone, concrete or vinyl surface. It will protect the floor from stains, and the grit in the coating will give any of these surfaces an R10 rating.
Once the coating passed all the slip rating tests, we applied it to our own marble floors in our Reception area. Here, the coating was subjected to heavy traffic, footfall, various chemicals and spills. We showed the results to the architects, who approved the samples and gave us the go-ahead to apply the coating to the newly laid Jura Limestone floor at the facility in question.
Work on the new medical facility had to be carried out during the night, as other works were taking place during the day. The tiles were recently laid so they just required a normal clean with Twister pads and stone soap. Once the floor was completely dry, the anti-slip coating was applied using a roller. There were 800 m2 in total to cover and it took our team three nights to complete.
The results are stunning, the anti-slip coating gives the limestone floor a stunning gloss finish, with micro beads ensuring it has its necessary R10 slip rating. The coating has been age tested, but due to the heavy footfall this facility will endure we advise re-application in about five years’ time. The anti-slip coating is also designed to render the surface stain resistant and if the new owners adhere to our maintenance plan this floor should retain its lustre for half a decade.
