Many Types Of Areas To Keep Safe
Metal is one of the more common building materials found in many locations. Bathrooms, kitchens and ramps are the most popular residential areas where metal surfaces are used. Metal is a popular option for those seeking a unique look as metal floors are one of the more unconventional flooring options. It has a resilient surface which can be pressed or textured to create unique designs. Metal is a very hard, slick surface which tends to be very slippery. The same can be said for a metal deck railing or ladder. The same smooth reflective surface that is so aesthetically pleasing and functional is very slippery when wet. If there is a probability that these metal surfaces will come into contact with water or if they are used for safety (ladders hand rails etc.), one can improve traction on metal surfaces with our non-slip treatment.
Vinyl steps are commonly found in residential settings inside and out. Vinyl is made from a variety of plastics (vinyl resins). This is the most popular type of flooring used in the US. It is important to note that different types of vinyl flooring require different levels of maintenance. Vinyl is most commonly found in residential kitchens, bathroom facilities, retail and commercial establishments. High quality vinyl is one of the most durable types of flooring available and can hold up against denting from heavy objects extremely well. Vinyl is a great option for stairs because it is low maintenance and is a very durable flooring option. Stairs are not a fun place to clean/vacuum so this durability is very important. Also since stairs are a dangerous place to slip and fall it is very important to have high traction on these surfaces. If your steps are being submerged underwater, we suggest having us apply our non-slip spray since it is chemical resistant to salts and chlorines.

Bleachers are used in a variety of situations and environments from athletic events to school photographs. Due to this high traffic it is common for people to track all kinds of substances onto the bleachers with their feet. Anyone who has ever watched an athletic event from the bleachers knows food and drinks are spilled on the bleachers regularly. If the bleachers are outdoors, weather can also be a big factor for the traction of the bleachers. Watching a football game in the rain is significantly less fun when your touchdown celebration (i.e. jumping up and down on the bleachers) leads to a hospital visit. Even taking school pictures can be a dangerous endeavor when the whole class is crammed onto the bleachers. If one person slips, that person can cause a domino effect, knocking down a number of other people on the way down. It is very important to treat bleachers with a non-slip solution to keep the risk of slips and falls as low as possible.

Laminate is a synthetic flooring comprised of multiple layers of High Density Fiberboard (HDF) fused with special resins. HDF is a fusion of wood waste products (wood shavings, saw dust etc.).. Laminate is essentially a photographic image of natural hardwood bonded to the HDF layers and topped with a water-resistant coating. Laminate is a popular flooring option for both commercial and residential use, and can be used in high-traffic areas. It is much more durable and scratch and stain resistant than natural hardwood floors. Laminate flooring is less expensive to install than natural hardwood and is a great way to get the look of a hardwood floor without the high cost however, its smooth surface can be slippery, especially when wet. We recommend using our product to help make your laminate floors more slip resistant.
Sheet vinyl is a resilient flooring usually supplied in 6- to 12-foot rolls. Sheet vinyl accounts for approximately 85% of vinyl flooring sales and is commonly used in sports/athletic facilities and recreational areas and is popular for covering large areas due to the fact that it is relatively seamless. It is a low-maintenance flooring option and is ideal for the paint lines necessary for creating athletic courts.

Vinyl plank flooring comes in pre-measured strips instead of sheets and tend to be supplied in 1- to 2- foot-long planks in varying widths. Vinyl plank is a very durable flooring option that is commonly used in commercial buildings with high foot traffic. It is also a popular choice for family rooms, nurseries, recreational rooms and play rooms. This durable flooring is a more affordable option than real hardwood floors yet can have the same design benefits. It is also simpler to install and easier to clean than hardwood floors. Vinyl is not typically damaged by accidental spills because the surface is highly resistant to absorbing liquids. While this makes for easy cleanup of spills, liquid on the floor can increase the potential for slip and fall accidents. Our product and professional application will help make your vinyl plank flooring more slip resistant.
