Anti-Slip Treatments for Stone and Tile

Why are Anti-Slip Treatments Important?

  • Over 2,000 people per day are the victims of slip and fall injuries.
  • Slip and fall accidents are the 5th most reported claims to homeowners insurance. The average slip and fall claim settles for between $10,000 and $50,000.
  • Slips and falls in the workplace is the second most common form of injury and usually results in 38 days of work loss to the injured person.
  • Slips and falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury.
At Patriot Stone Restorations we offer specialty topical treatments that increase slip resistance, helping to prevent slip and fall accidents.

Where Should Anti-Slip Treatments be applied?

Anti-slip treatments are designed to lower the slipperiness of surfaces to reduce slip and fall accidents anywhere the potential for slips and falls is likely or can happen.
Natural stone, ceramic and other types of tile can be slippery, especially when wet. An anti-slip floor or surface treatment in wet areas can greatly reduce the the possibility of a slip and fall accident in your home or business.
Wet areas are not just pool surrounds or kitchen and bath areas. They can also be entrance areas that get wet from foot traffic coming in out of the rain or snow, or walkways that lead to or from a pool, fountain or other water feature. What about a floor that has just been mopped but isn’t all the way dry or a liquid that gets spilled in a hallway that isn’t yet mopped up yet? Do you have an area that is prone to baby or pet accidents or do you have a place outside that puddles up in the rain and runs over your patio?
However, don’t just think about anti-slip treatments for wet areas. Dry areas can benefit as well. The soles of some shoes can be very slippery. What about the person that walks through something outside that sticks to their shoes and unknowingly creates a slip hazard for themselves or someone else? What about a grill area that is prone to dripping grease and food?
All of these places, and many more can benefit from an anti-slip treatment.

What Type of Anti-Slip Treatment Do I need?

The type of anti-slip treatment you need depends on a lot of things:

  • Where the surface is, inside or out.
  • What type of tile it is, natural stone, quartz, ceramic or something else.
  • How much foot traffic there is.
  • Is the surface in a wet area like a bathroom, around a pool or hot tub or other wet areas.

These are just some of the things that go into deciding what type of anti-slip treatment you need.
