"Slip Prevention For Any Surface In All Environments"
Vinyl Flooring Engineering Works Huddersfield West Yorkshire
This decorative Vinyl flooring in an access corridor of a large international engineering company had very poor slip resistance when wet. Pendulum Testing showed that the slip resistance was well below the recommended levels. Due to a sloping section of the corridor the risk of slips was even greater therefore the management decided to take pro- active action to reduce the risk.
The surface was first cleaned and degreased with a rotary scrubber dryer and floor scrubbing machines. A surface stripper was then used to remove all wax polish and seal. A two pack heavy duty anti-slip resin was then applied to the entire floor area by rollers as a two coat system. Because the resin was a mat finish the existing colour and decorative appearance of the vinyl was not affected. The slip resistance was also increased to over 45 PTV in wet conditions.
