We’ve all come across the idea of an anti-slip tile coating – it’s that layer added to tiles to reduce slipperiness. But a fact that often slips through is that these coatings might only do the trick for a short while. Even something as sturdy as epoxy coatings, celebrated for its durability, might need a touch-up after enduring daily wear and tear.
For many businesses, particularly those that see a lot of foot traffic, a fleeting fix just won’t cut it. Continually updating these coatings isn’t just a hit to the pocket, but it’s also quite the hassle. So, the demand is evident – we need more than just a momentary patch-up; we need a steadfast solution.
Non-Slip Tile Treatment: The New Solution
The Science Behind the Treatment
Unlike the traditional non-slip tile coating, our unique tile treatment works at a microscopic level. Instead of merely adding a layer on top, it interacts with the surface of the tile, changing its very structure to make it naturally non-slip. Think of it as giving your tiles a permanent grip, rather than a temporary cover.
A Real-world Success: War Memorial Hospital’s Hydro Therapy Pool
A shining testament to the effectiveness of our treatment is our recent project at the War Memorial Hospital. The Hydro Therapy pool area, a critical space where safety is paramount, needed a solution that was both effective and long-lasting. With our non-slip tile treatment, the hospital was able to ensure the safety of its patients and staff without the need for regular maintenance. This not only saved them time and resources but also provided peace of mind knowing that the area was consistently safe.
Benefits: Why Choose Treatment Over Coating?
The biggest advantage of opting for a treatment rather than a traditional epoxy coating is its durability. Given that the treatment changes the very structure of the tile, it offers a consistency that coatings can’t match. No more periodic reapplications, no more wear and tear, just a consistently safe surface year after year.
Cost-Effective in the Long Run
While the initial investment in a treatment might be higher than that of a standard non-slip tile coating, the long-term benefits far outweigh the costs. Considering the savings on reapplications and the reduced risk of accidents, the treatment proves to be a more cost-effective solution in the long run.
