Anti slip paint is a floor coating system which provides a rougher surface on usually slippery substrates. The roughness in turn, provides more grip and so reduces incidents caused by slipping and tripping.

Anti slip coatings are the most common in public places and working environments, yet they are also becoming more and more popular in residential buildings.

3 ways to create an anti slip surface

  1. 1 component paint that contains anti slip particles
  2. 2 component system where anti slip particles are added just before application
  3. Regular floor paint where non skid particles are spread on right after application

  • Interior paint used outside

Sometimes a solution  other than anti slip paint may be more convenient. This is the case especially when only small area requires coating or when extreme vehicle or foot traffic is expected.

  • Anti slip tape for stairs, walkways and pedestrian routes
  • Non slip strips for steep roads, sloaps and bridges
  • Non skid mats for temporary use on floors
  • Anti skid sprays for small surfaces such as bathtubs and showers
