How Anti-Slip Coating Makes Stairs Safer

Thousands of many injuries occur because of stairs everywhere. Stairs are a convenient method of moving from one elevation to another, but all it takes is a momentary lapse in balance, and a person can go tumbling. Injuries from stairs range from mild to severe, and in some cases even death. Stairs aren’t always difficult. Most people will use stairs many times a day for years at a time without having even a slight mishap. Stairs aren’t always dangerous, but they become dangerous when they are wet. When stairs made of concrete, tile, or any other smooth surface become wet, injuries are bound to happen.

Fortunately, anti-slip stairs can be achieved by applying non slip coating. When this coating is applied, the coefficient of friction is increased. This means that when a person is stepping on a stair, the surface is making contact with the feet of the person in more places. The coating makes a tread design, too small for the human eye to see. Even when wet, there will be enough friction between the feet and the stairs to prevent a dangerous slip.

This particular solution to slippery stairs is desirable because it can be added to new or existing stairs. The application is quick and easy. The only additional step when applying the coating to existing stairs it to properly clean the surface. This ensures that the coating will attach permanently to the actual stair surface, and not to dust or debris resting on top.

There are alternatives to anti slip coating as well. Stair nosing and stair treads are long strips of material that are attached to the end or top of stairs. If there is an pool area featuring stairs, outdoor stair treads can be installed to prevent excited swimmers from having unfortunate injuries. Safety is important, and making stairs safe is quick and easy, so there’s no reason not to address this slip problem.
