Anti slip floor coating is a popular choice amongst many industries. Low cost and generally effective – what could be better?

Generally used for bridges and paths, anti-slip coating is a common solution to the problem of a slippery floor. The problem with anti slip floor coating is that it’s incredibly time consuming. It can take between 3 and 4 days to apply, as the coating must cure. During this time, the walkway/bridge must remain closed. Or, if a path is left to cure while remaining open, it’s practically guaranteed that some form of debris/footprints/debris will appear in the coating, resulting in a messy finish and the whole job needing to be redone.

Of course, because the application of anti-slip floor coating is so time consuming, it’s also weather dependent. Any wet weather or temperatures below 10 degrees Celsius are unsuitable for applying anti-slip floor coating, unless sufficiently covered or heated, which would be expensive.

Anti Slip Floor Coating is a Popular Choice

There is also the prospect of preparing the substrate (the surface that is being coated). If the substrate is not adequately prepared, the life of the anti-slip floor coating can be substantially reduced, not to mention the safety seriously compromised. Anti-slip floor coating generally doesn’t have that long a lifespan; after a few years, it normally needs recoating.

A fantastic, high quality alternative to anti-slip floor coating is anti-slip floor panels. Manufactured to suit your exact requirements and to fit any room, anti-slip flooring is available in a wide variety of colours and finishes, as opposed to anti-slip floor coating which is often only available in dark grey.
