Anti-Slip Tile Treatment
Avoid injury and law suits with Fusion Restoration’s anti-slip tile treatments. Our CSIRO certified non-slip tile treatments can be beneficial on all types of tile, stone and concrete residential, public or work place hard surfaces that are dangerous especially when wet.
Fusion Restoration offers 3 different solutions to removing the slip risk.
In most cases it’s the mould, oils and chemicals that build up on the surface of the tiles create a slippery film. A Fusion Clean will remove the slippy film and return the surface back to its original texture. We can now looking at ways to prevent future build up like penetrating sealers, installing awnings, increasing air flow, matting and installing a cleaning regime.
Anti-slip tile etching treatment
Our non-slip acid etching treatment works by slightly etching the smooth surface and providing a fiction rating to comply with the Australian Safety Standard AS/NZS 4586:2004. This is not a coating and will never peel, delaminate or wear off quickly. It may slightly lighten the appearance of darker tiles but we are happy to come out and provide a free test and quote.
This cost effective treatment is recommended for glazed ceramic tiles, porcelains, vitrified tiles, polished granite, terrazzo, terracotta, quarry tiles, concrete, slate and other hard floor surfaces.
Non-Slip Coating Systems
Topical or Film Sealers are excellent at protecting the substrate. Their disadvantage is they can increase the slip risk when wet and catch people unaware. Fusion Cleaning and Sealing can broadcast CSIRO certified non slip grit into the top coat sealer adding traction to the once smooth surface.
The non slip grit comes in 4 different sizes and being semi transparent is hardly visible. A non slip coating is recommend for porous surfaces that require a gloss or wet look.
