UltraGrip: Our Most Advanced Anti-Slip Solution
UltraGrip is one of our most innovative new technologies which has not been previously available in Australia and New Zealand. It is a liquid treatment that can double the slip resistance of a wet ceramic tile by microscopically altering the surface profile without changing the look or feel of the surface. This innovative technology significantly reduces the risk of slips and falls to users of the floor. Recent NATA wet pendulum testing showed that a P1 (21) rated tile was transformed to a P3 (42) rated tile after treatment with UltraGrip, in just 30 minutes, without changing the look or feel of the tile. Treatment can prolong the life of worn-down tiles that might have needed replacing in the past, with warranties available for up to 5 years.
The treatment process itself is extremely time efficient, as the floor can be walked on immediately after treatment, meaning the disruption to normal business and inconvenience to customers is minimal.
A video above showing the treated tiles on a wet ramp and the ability to walk up the treated slope without issue is below. The left side is untreated and, as you can see, extremely slippery and dangerous. This sort of slip resistance can be applied to hotel entrances, commercial kitchens, restaurants, bars and bathrooms.
Please watch this YouTube video for an animation of UltraGrip which explains how it works, which is different to other previously available treatments and acid etches.
