Did you know that slips, trips, and falls account for the vast majority of accidents and injuries in both the home and the workplace in Perth? The reality is that many of these accidents could be so easily prevented with the help of slip resistant floor tiles. Below, we discuss five of the main benefits of these tiles, currently available at Ceramic Tile Supplies.
Anti-slip floor tiles are extremely versatile from an aesthetic perspective. At Ceramic Tile Supplies, you will find a host of different colours and designs to choose from to suit your preferences. Some of our best sellers include Busker Beige, Chorus White GRIP, and Downtown Bianco Matte. We also currently offer the following styles:
- Decorative style
- Stone look
- Concrete look
- Subway style
- Large Format
- Timber Look
Therefore, regardless of the type of look and feel you’d like to create, you can achieve it without sacrificing safety.
Our anti-slip flooring supplies have been manufactured to really stand the test of time. All slip-resistant tiles are certain to last substantially longer than their non-treated counterparts. Therefore, while you may pay slightly more in the short-term, you will be saving a significant amount of money in the long run.
One of the biggest pros of anti-slip flooring is the fact that it requires minimal maintenance. The non-slip coating is designed to remain strong and intact despite the amount of foot traffic the floors receive on a daily basis. This is why this type of flooring is such a sought-after choice among both homeowners and business owners in Perth.
Different levels of slip resistance
Contrary to popular belief, there is not just one level of slip-resistance when it comes to tiling. You will have the option to choose just how strong the level of strip resistance is when buying your tiles. The level you choose will depend on more than just your preferences and budget constraints. It will also depend on where you plan on having the tiles installed.
Here at Ceramic Tile Supplies, we offer three different levels of slip-resistance, namely P3, P4, and P5. These ratings are based on the wet pendulum slip-resistance test. The test makes use of a swinging pendulum with a rubber foot that has been spring loaded. When the pendulum moves through the upright position, the rubber foot comes into contact with the wet test surface and slides over it.
From there, the level of the flooring’s slip-resistance is recorded. P3 is moderately resistant to slips and falls when wet, P4 is extremely resistant to slips and falls when wet, and P5 is about as slip-resistant as a type of flooring can get.
Generally, P3 flooring is perfectly suitable for most residential applications. However, business owners may want to consider P4 and P5 rated flooring for additional safety, especially in areas that are prone to moisture and where accidents are most likely to occur.
