What Does Our Anti Slip Treatment Do?

 We offer a long-lasting chemical treatment that creates an invisible, sophisticated tread design into the surface of hard mineral floors and porcelain/enamel bathtubs. We will not change the appearance of the floor or bathtub. Our product has been developed and proven for concrete, quarry tile, spanish tile, ceramic tile, glazed brick, marble, terrazzo, porcelain/enamel, and many other hard mineral surfaces. 

What Doesn't It Do?

 It  is not a film or a coating.  Nor does it leave any chemicals, grit or residue on the surface of the floor or bathtub.  Once a surface is treated, 100% of the solution is neutralized and then removed. This treatment is a clean process and will often leaves your looking cleaner and newer than when we started.  Other than looking cleaner, your floors appearance will remain unchanged.

What is the Process and Can I See the Treatment in Action Before I Decide?

The process is simple.  We will come to you and assess your floors with a test to measure the dynamic co-efficient of friction of your floors.  We can then demonstrate how it works on a small area of your floor or a tile sample so you can see for yourself.  If you like what you see, which we know you will, we will schedule a time to do the process with little or no interruption to your business or daily routine.
