LEARN ABOUT TILE
A slip resistant tile enables the user to implement certain levels of risk reduction for areas of high-risk for slip, trip and fall incidents, most commonly wet areas and areas of high pedestrian traffic. The surface of a slip resistant tile has been designed and manufactured to reduce the risk of these incidents by creating higher levels of friction when walked upon in a number of different circumstances.
The research and development into products that can accomplish this is ever evolving and the Porcelanosa Group, exclusive to Earp Bros, is leading the world in this area.
Sustainable slip resistant surfaces have been developed and manufactured that are of the highest ratings in the world, whilst maintaining the most exquisite designs available.
A common misconception with slip resistant products is that they are difficult to clean. With surfaces now designed for both slip hazard reduction, and for cleanability, maintenance on these products is significantly easier than it has been historically and is dependant on both the initial post-construction clean and the routine cleaning schedule.
Sustainable slip surfaces enable the end user to feel confident in the flooring underfoot, and the building owner to feel secure in the risk reduction of their flooring surface.
