Don’t Slip Up on Tile Safety!
WorkSafe have seen it all. They know the major causes of slip fall accidents. And they know that one of the most dangerous is slippery tiles.
Now if that doesn’t strike fear into your heart we don’t know what will. First, there’s the likelihood of someone being severely injured – or worse still – losing their life. Second, is the almost certain costly litigation that will result.
Most commercial buildings have tiled floors – in their bathrooms, showers, laundries and toilets – the wet areas. Some tiles can become very slippery when they are wet. They are a serious slip/fall hazard, as well as being non-compliant with the Australian Slip Resistance Standard AS 4663:2013.
When someone slips on an untreated tile, it’s as if they are aquaplaning. A layer of water builds up between their feet and the tiled surface, so they have no traction when they walk. They are literally helpless. There’s no way for them to go but down – unless they have something solid to grab to stop their fall.
The AntiSlipIt solution
Tiles contain a small amount of silica in their profile. We carefully formulate our treatment by dissolving a controlled amount of the silica to create thousands of tiny shallow indentations in the surface of each tile. This is a PERMANENT change to each tile’s surface.
Our anti-slip treatment for tiles makes them safer WET than DRY! The benefits are many and include:
- The surface will comply with Slip Resistance Standard SA 4663:2013.
- A dramatic increase in slip resistance – while the tiles still look the same.
- You can walk on the floor IMMEDIATELY after the treatment!
- It is a very cost-effective alternative when you consider the inconvenience and disruption to business of replacing the floor.
- Your tiled floors can be cleaned as per normal.
- The treatment is economical and environmentally friendly.
- The treatment shows that you have demonstrated due diligence regarding Duty of Care legislation.
When someone treads on treated wet tiles, they’ll have traction. The pressure of their feet on the tiles squeezes water out of the shallow indentations created by the treatment.
The anti-slip treatment increases the slip resistance of tiled floors on a long-term basis. However, it is essential to keep the microscopic pore structures clean and free from dirt or grease to ensure that floors retain their slip resistance. We recommend daily maintenance with an Enzyme Cleaner.
