Slippery floors are dangerous and can lead to falls, injuries, spills, and worse. We often have customers ask us if epoxy floor coating is slippery. While floors of any material can result in slips, there are a few factors that determine how slippery your epoxy floor is. Take a look:
Does your floor need non-slip additive?
To answer this question, there are a couple of factors to keep in mind. The first factor is how you plan to use the floor. Spilled fluids like oil, anti-freeze, and cleaning chemicals can lead to slips and falls. If you use your garage as a workshop or do a lot of car maintenance, non-slip will make the environment safer for you.
The second factor to consider is the climate you live in. Here in San Antonio, the majority of our weather is hot and dry. However, we do get some rain here and there, which can make your garage floor slippery. If you’ve experienced problems with your garage getting slippery after a storm, then a non-slip additive will minimize that.
Your garage floor’s traction can be enhanced by using non-slip additives. To make a non-slip surface, we mix a non-slip material like grit or polymer beads into the epoxy. The additives are designed to appear translucent, so they won’t decrease the visual appeal of your floor. Call [company_name] today to discuss your non-slip epoxy floor options.
