"Slip Prevention For Any Surface In All Environments"
Terrazzo Flooring Treatment – Busy Railway Station North East of England
The Terrazzo floor surface in this very large busy railway station had become extremely slippery when wet. Due to the covered yet open aspects of the station concourse the surface was susceptible to slips due to high levels of condensation and moisture deposits. The surface had also become polished due to the rigorous cleaning regime. The facilities team recognised that passengers entering the main concourse were at risk of slip accidents due to these factors.
For this Terrazzo Flooring Treatment the surface was first microscopically etched to remove the surface shine and polish. This was done with a rotary scrubber dryer and floor scrubbing machines. A moisture reactive non slip treatment was then applied to the fully prepared area to increase the slip resistance when the surface was wet.
