Safety First: Creating Slip Resistant Floors and Surfaces

Winter is on the horizon, and before we know it, much of the country will be dealing with rain, ice, and snow.  With inclement weather comes an increased risk of falls, which is a major liability.

Whether it’s residential or commercial, some surfaces need extra grip.  By adding texture to areas such as entryways, patio decks, staircases, and wheelchair ramps, safety is increased and risks reduced.  Vortex has developed a range of anti-slip flooring options, so our dealers can address the exact needs of their customers.

Granitex™ Slip Resistant Granules

Safety First - Creating Slip Resistant Floors and Surfaces _Wheel Chair RampWith the Vortex Granitex™ HD-8001 Baked On Floor System, customers get a faux granite floor that looks like a million bucks.  By adding Granitex™ Slip Resistant Granules, floors get a base level of grip that is ideal for both indoor and outdoor surfaces.

The granules are fired through ceramic beads that come in a variety of colors to match most of the Granitex™ Polyphatic glaze colors.  When sprayed across the wet Pholyphatic glaze, they solidly bond to the surface, creating an easy-to-clean surface with the extra grip you want for a sure step.
