Anti-Slip Treatments

The beauty of tiles.... without the slip.

You can turn wet floor slip into grip without altering the colour, appeal and low maintenance benefits of your tiles.

ANTI-SLIP TREATMENT TILE (AST-TILE)  is a process that alters the top surface of your tile to create a highly effective microscopic non-slip texture without introducing unsightly coatings, tapes or overlays. Tiles become very slippery when wet and present a high risk of accident and injury contributing significantly to horror slip accident statistics.

AST-TILE is not a coating overlay that will yellow, wear down and look shabby over time but rather it is an actual treatment that affects the top surface of your tile and places a microscopic texture into the very surface of the tile. This super fine texture, while it can't be felt with the bare hand, has a pronounced affect by breaking down the hydroplaning action usually found on wet smooth floor surfaces.

The tiles full toughness and durability will be unchanged but now with the added benefit of being slip free.

No longer do you need to consider rough textured hard to clean tiles for those wet areas both inside and out. AST-TILE will transform your existing tile without changing its colour or character. Some gloss on high shine tiles may be lost through this application.
