Grip Guard Non Slip  recently appointed a distributor in Tatura, approximately 2.5 hours north of Melbourne, near Shepparton. John and Kellie Cox of GripSmart Floor Safety supply and install the complete range of Grip Guard non slip floor safety solutions in Tatura and surrounding areas.

Grip Guard non slip floor safety treatments provide the ideal floor safety solution for stone based floors such as ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, granite, terrazzo, marble, concrete, and aggregates. The unique treatment dramatically increases the slip resistance of floors when wet.

Grip Guard non slip floor treatments have previously been used in hospitals, schools, aged care facilities, office buildings, homes and shopping centres.

Unsafe floors are the main cause of slip and fall accidents, and resulting injuries cost Australians millions of dollars each year.

Ensuring that floors are safe is the responsibility of property owners and managers, so slip testing of floors should be undertaken on a regular basis to ensure that the coefficient of friction (slip resistance) is kept at a safe level.

As well as Grip Guard anti slip floor safety treatments, GripSmart Floor Safety provides property owners with a full range of stair safety options, including ProStep anti slip aluminum extrusion stair nosings and carborundum modified nosings. Slips and trips on stairs can be avoided by ensuring that stairs have a slip resistant and visually contrasting leading edge.

Tactile ground surface indicators (TGSI) are a legal requirement for all new or newly renovated buildings and are also included in Grip Guard’s floor safety products range.

These tactile indicators provide a tactile warning of impending hazards (eg stairs, ramps) to help the visually impaired safely navigate in public places. A full range of tactiles is available to suit every building project.
