A slippery floor is a dangerous floor. Slips can easily lead to serious injuries, broken bones, and concussions. When we get a call from a customer who’s considering epoxy, they often want to know if it’s slippery. Although epoxy can look sleek and shiny, it’s not any more slippery than traditional types of flooring. Plus, we can add extra non-slip additives for extra traction and safety.
How important is a non-slip additive?
Non-slip additives to epoxy are an option, but not always necessary. There are a few situations where non-slip additives can be immensely helpful, though! If you plan to use your garage as a workshop, then it may be wise to make it as slip-free as possible. Spills of oil, cleaning chemicals, anti-freeze, and other liquids can pose a serious threat that non-slip additives can help to mitigate.
Climate is another important factor. Vancouver’s weather is notoriously rainy and snowy. All that precipitation can make your garage floor slippery and dangerous. Non-slip floor coatings can make your floor safer to walk on during inclement weather.
