Winter has finally arrived, bringing with it frost, snow, ice and blustery wind and rain. This type of weather is unpleasant at the best of times, but even more so when you’re faced with slippery terrain. Decking can be slippery at the best of times but in winter it can be downright dangerous, and reception areas of buildings can be risky too when all the snow gets trodden in. Non slip floors are a great way to help combat the slipperiness; by providing more friction for shoes to grip they make a safer floor surface than conventional materials such as tile, timber and concrete. Non slip flooring is commonly used at building entrances but it often isn’t enough to provide a non slip surface in the winter months.
Reduce the Risk of Injury with Non Slip Stair Treads
Stairs can also be a risky business in winter. Everyone has experienced the heart-stopping moment where you misjudge the width of a step and your foot slips off it. Most of the time you simply grip the stair rail and land on the next step, but if there was any ice or water on the step then the outcome could be much more unpleasant. Non slip stair treads are the ideal solution, reducing slipperiness and the risk of someone falling down the stairs – therefore minimising the risk of injury. An injury claim is the last thing any business wants – not to mention the paperwork it involves!
