Non-Slip & Slip-Resistant For Tiles. How to Fix and Remove Slippery Indoor & Outdoor Floor Areas. At Home & Workplace.
To make tiles non-slip and slip-resistant for both indoor and outdoor is paramount to ensure that floor tiles in the wet high traffic areas can provide sufficient friction for users. Especially for vulnerable aging elderly, senior, disabled and young kids.
Wet rooms, bathrooms, showers and toilets flooring are highly prone to risk of slips and falls at home and workplace.
To begin with, it is important to understand why floor tiles are slippery. This is because there is insufficient slip-resistant between a person’s feet and the flooring. The foot slips through the floor easily especially when is wet, soapy or oily.
Therefore, it is important to increase the coefficient of friction (COF) of tiles so that there is a better grip to hold the foot with better slip-resistance.
This article will provide some ideas and recommendations on how to create a safer flooring. Especially for dangerous wet areas. Such as bathtub, shower, kitchen, bathroom, toilet flooring.
1. Non-Slip Coatings.

Mix sand, grit, mica flakes or pebbles additives into outdoor epoxy paint or concrete sealant for an extra topcoat of slip resistance.
4. Use The Appropriate Floor Cleaner.

In areas exposed to water like toilet, bathroom or outdoor balcony. Choose non-slip tile with slip rating R9, R10, R11, R12, R13 tiles and ease of future maintenance. They are made of materials that offer better grip when wet.
9. Grout Lines.
Ensure that grout lines are well-kept and free from mold or mildew. As they can be slippery when wet. Consider using epoxy grout, which is more resistant to moisture. Or using non-slip grout additives during installation.
10. Non-Slip Strips or Tapes.
Apply stairs nosing such as non-slip treads or tapes on outdoor steps and staircases. Anti-skid paint and non-skid spray can be a good combination. It can increase the traction of stairs from slipping and falling at heights.
