Kitchen floor issue solved by Safe Grip
Main cooking area with anti slip strips.

This club and motel has a very large kitchen which had an epoxy floor installed about 10 years ago. While the floor was still in reasonable condition the slip resistive quality has diminished to a level where it posed an increased risk of slipping for employees.

Pro-active management has engaged Global Safe Technologies T/as Anti-Slip Anywhere to assess the situation and recommend an appropriate sustainable solution. This was after an alternative supplier offer was rejected as part of their solution required grinding off completely the existing floor. This was not acceptable due to the noise factor associated with the grinding, as the work had to be carried out when the kitchen was closed down.

Anti-Slip Anywhere’s floor safety representative after attending the site has proposed to employ the Safe Grip Ultimate product as anti slip strips with either a 50 mm gap between strips in the high risk areas and a 100 mm gap between strips in other areas. The strips also had to allow for water run down to make cleaning of the kitchen surfaces easy.

This solution has been used sucessfully installed in kitchens in Australia as well as in several other countries and provides a sustainable Pendulum Class P5 / V slip resistance.

One of the advantages of this solution was that in this situation it did not require grinding off the existing epoxy surface but could be applied after the surface was properly prepared. The proposed solution also allowed that the kitchens normal operation and opening hours could be maintained during the entire installation process.

Product sample and other relevant information was presented to club management. The recommendation was accepted and the Anti-Slip Anywhere team has carried out the work.

The project was completed within the agreed times and the surface has beeen independently tested by a NATA accredited slip resistance company, Safe Environments. The mean average test result using the Wet Pendulum testing, was BPN 62, which provides a high Pendulum Class P5 classification and full compliance.

Anti-Slip Anywhere and its accredited applicators are the only floor safety providers on the market offering an independent slip resistance testing as part of any anti slip commercial flooring project.

Feedback from club management and employees is excellent. They indicated their total satisfaction with the quality of the workmanship and the professionalism and dedication of the application team during the entire project and have also commented on the dramatically increased safety of the floor.
