Slip Resistant Flooring
Reducing slips, falls and resulting injuries is the goal of facility and safety managers for businesses, institutions and municipalities. Injuries from slips and falls cost billions of dollars each year in terms of medical management, rehabilitation and lost time.
SlipShield 1000 is a slip-resistant, weatherable, extended lifecycle sealer that is used to increase the coefficient of friction on smooth pedestrian walking surfaces such as polished stone without markedly changing the appearance of the substrate. SlipShield 1000 is applied to interior and exterior ceramic tile, polished stone, polished concrete, coated flooring, metal decking and selected interior wood substrates to improve slip resistance in both dry and wet environments. SlipShield 1000 is available in both clear and solid colors in gloss, semi-gloss, satin and matte finishes. SlipShield 1000 clear provides a weatherable, ultra-violet resistant surface that allows the uncompromised structure and beauty of tile, polished stone and polished concrete to show through while slip resistance is increased for improved safety.
If extra slip resistance is needed due to ponding water, steep ramps or stairs, a specialized aggregate can be added to SlipShield 1000 to further increase slip resistance on difficult exterior and interior surfaces. The addition of our unique aggregate in SlipShield 1000 provides the improve slip resistance with minimal aesthetic impact on tile, polished stone, polished concrete, coated flooring and metal decking.
Application plays an important role in optimizing the coefficient of friction with SlipShield 1000. Flooring installation professionals are best equipped to install SlipShield 1000. An audit to determine the coefficient of friction of the finished floor is recommended.
How SlipShield 1000 Works
SlipShield 1000 is an extended lifecycle weatherable sealer system that creates a consistent polymeric structure throughout the film. This polymeric structure provides slip resistance as long as the film remains on the surface of the substrate, whether new or worn.
