Non-slip Resilient Floors
These are all of the common resilient floor types that we can make non-slip
Vinyl flooring is made from plastic composites and is one of the most popular types of floor surface used in the U.S. Vinyl is most commonly found in residential kitchens, bathrooms, and retail and commercial establishments. High quality vinyl is one of the most durable types of flooring available and holds up extremely well against abrasion and impact. It is a popular choice because vinyl can be designed to replicate the look of various hard surfaces, such as wood, concrete and tile. Vinyls low cost, durability and relatively low maintenance make it ideal for high traffic areas since it will withstand more wear than other floors, however, vinyls smooth surface can be slippery, especially when wet. Our treatment will help make your vinyl floors more slip resistant.
VCT (Vinyl Composition Tiles) account for approximately 80% of U.S. commercial flooring. Thicker than consumer-grade vinyl tile and installed with adhesive rather than a peel-and-stick backing, VCT is most frequently found in commercial and institutional buildings and is also very comfortable to stand on making it a popular choice for grocery stores, offices and play rooms. VCT is a good choice for areas with a lot of foot traffic such as kitchens, laundry rooms and bathrooms. Its high abrasion resistance makes it very low maintenance and can be found in designs that resemble wood, stone and concrete. If your VCT floor becomes slippery when wet, we recommend contacting us to apply our product to help make the surface more slip-resistant.
Linoleum is a natural, tough, low-maintenance floor surface material derived from oxidized linseed oil. The linseed oil is mixed with plant materials such as wood flour, ground cork and pine resins bonded to a jute backing. Because linoleum is made of top-quality organic materials and can have anti-microbial properties, it proves popular in health care facilities, hospitals, nurseries and playrooms. Linoleum is also a great choice in residential homes for bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms. It is available in a variety of popular styles and colors. Linoleum’s smooth surface can be slippery, especially when wet, however, our installers can help make your linoleum floor more slip resistant.
Vinyl plank flooring comes in pre-measured strips instead of sheets and tend to be supplied in 1- to 2- foot-long planks in varying widths. Vinyl plank is a very durable flooring option that is commonly used in commercial buildings with high foot traffic. It is also a popular choice for family rooms, nurseries, recreational rooms and play rooms. This durable flooring is a more affordable option than real hardwood floors yet can have the same design benefits. It is also simpler to install and easier to clean than hardwood floors. Vinyl is not typically damaged by accidental spills because the surface is highly resistant to absorbing liquids. While this makes for easy cleanup of spills, liquid on the floor can increase the potential for slip and fall accidents. Our product and professional application will help make your vinyl plank flooring more slip resistant.
Sheet vinyl is a resilient flooring usually supplied in 6- to 12-foot rolls. Sheet vinyl accounts for approximately 85% of vinyl flooring sales and is commonly used in sports/athletic facilities and recreational areas and is popular for covering large areas due to the fact that it is relatively seamless. It is a low-maintenance flooring option and is ideal for the paint lines necessary for creating athletic courts. Sheet vinyl is, however, a very smooth surface that can be slippery, especially when wet. Your vinyl sheet floor can be made more slip resistant using our product.
Laminate is a synthetic flooring comprised of multiple layers of High Density Fiberboard (HDF) fused with special resins. HDF is a fusion of wood waste products (wood shavings, saw dust etc.).. Laminate is essentially a photographic image of natural hardwood bonded to the HDF layers and topped with a water-resistant coating. Laminate is a popular flooring option for both commercial and residential use, and can be used in high-traffic areas. It is much more durable and scratch and stain resistant than natural hardwood floors. Laminate flooring is less expensive to install than natural hardwood and is a great way to get the look of a hardwood floor without the high cost however, its smooth surface can be slippery, especially when wet. We recommend using our product to help make your laminate floors more slip resistant.
