How to choose the right anti-slip for tiles

Homeowners often choose tiles for hallways, kitchens and bathrooms because of its aesthetic appeal and easy maintenance. But the combination of the sleek surfaces of tiles, high foot traffic and presence of moisture can leave these areas slippery and a danger to you and your loved ones. For extra grip underfoot, you should consider a quality anti-slip tile coating or treatment for your floors. But which product is best for your surfaces? Let us explore:

Tips to choose the best anti-slip tile coating


There are a few important aspects to keep in mind when selecting the correct anti-slip coating for tiles.


Aesthetics

Anti-Slip coatings and treatments come in a variety of different finishes. These can include textured or smooth, matte or semi-gloss and transparent or colour finishes. Ideally you need to not only match the floor type and location to the correct product but also the desired final finish.


Adhesion

Some tiles have been sealed previously and so to ensure the best bond for your anti-slip product you need to ensure that the anti-slip coating can bond to the tiles. When the surface has not been sealed most SlipDoctors products will bond without issues.

Time

Some anti-slip coatings require at least 24hrs to cure before being able to be used whilst other anti-slip treatments for tiles can be done within 8 to 15 minutes. You need to consider the timing of the product’s application especially when working on busier areas like kitchens or lobbies.


Cleanability

With some non-slip treatments and coatings, the method of cleaning surfaces may have to be changed. Many treatments add a texture to floors which may make them slightly more abrasive than normal.
