Slip-Resistant Resin Flooring

Slip-resistant resin flooring is well known for its slip-resistance properties, which can reduce the likelihood of falling or tripping. This is an important consideration for a variety of settings, from workplaces to schools and industrial spaces. The right non-slip resin floor materials can help control, minimize and mitigate slip, trip and fall hazards and contribute to meeting legal ‘duty of care’ health and safety requirements.

Choosing the right material will depend on a number of factors, including your preferred design and aesthetic, the space’s specific needs and whether you are looking to achieve a certain level of slip resistance. Both microcement and resin options are available for commercial slip-resistant floors, and both can be customised to meet your particular requirements.

Beyond Aesthetics: Exploring the Practical Benefits of Slip-Resistant Resin Flooring

While micro cement and resin floors are highly durable, the slip resistance they provide may diminish over time. It is therefore essential to keep up with regular inspections, and ensure that any areas that have lost their slip-resistant properties are reapplied by a professional contractor or installer.

It is also important to avoid excessive moisture on the surface of a resin floor, and to ensure that spills are cleaned up promptly to prevent staining or damage. The type of slip-resistance chosen will also affect cleaning; for example, more angular aggregates will require a heavier, more aggressive coating than softer aggregates. It is also a good idea to use protective measures, such as felt pads or felt glides, under heavy furniture equipment, to avoid scratching or denting the coating.
