This section includes equipment to reduce flooring slipperiness.
Replacement flooring is designed to replace existing flooring and may be suitable for use in wet and/or dry areas. Flooring suitable for wet floors can be used in the immediate area outside a shower or form the flooring for a wet room area.
Mats, panels and tiles are designed to improve the slip-resistance of existing flooring. Many are designed for use in entrances.
Paints and coatings can be bonded, or sprayed onto indoor or outdoor flooring surfaces to provide increased slip-resistance in wet or dry areas.
Tapes and strips can be cut to length and added to existing flooring to provide slip-resistance. Some are suitable for use in wet or dry areas.
Rug and stair safety equipment includes tapes and slip-resistant netting placed under rugs and mats to reduce slippage, and slip-resistant/high visibility treads, cleats, edgings and tapes for stairs. Where there is uncarpeted stairs, such as tiled or lino covered stairs, these tapes and tiles could enhance grip on the stairs.
