Safe.T.First Pool Safety Ltd is pleased to be appointed exclusive Cyprus distributor for FSI’s internationally-acclaimed antSLIP treatment.
Over the years, prestige organisations like Cadbury, Debenhams, Lidl, Marks & Spencer, Mercedes Benz UK, McDonalds and Natwest Bank have used and benefitted from antiSLIP treatments.
WHAT IS antiSLIP? antiSLIP is an invisible, liquid-applied, moisture-reactive treatment which will increase the wet slip resistance of most types of hard floor.
THE PROBLEM Hotels, banks, shops, offices, malls, hospitals and public pools use stamped concrete, granite, terrazzo and ceramic and porcelain tiles for flooring. These and other hard surfaces pose significant slipping hazards when wet. Slips and falls may result in serious injury, exposing the premises/business owner to a potential claim under Premises Liability law. In today’s litigious society, personal injury claims arising from a poorly maintained floor are a risk no landlord or business owner can afford to take.
THE SOLUTION The traditional remedy for slippy surfaces required removal and replacement of the problem tiles. This was a major undertaking, causing considerable inconvenience and was also time-consuming and costly. Now, our 3-part antiSLIP treatment can reduce the wet-slip characteristics of most hard floors, in minimal time, and for a fraction the cost of replacement.
HOW antiSLIP WORKS antiSLIP works by penetrating, and then bonding into, the microscopic pores of the substrate below the surface. On contact with moisture, the system expands microscopically above the surface to dramatically increase the coefficient of friction.
WHAT CHANGES ARE APPARENT AFTER TREATMENT? There is usually little or no change to the appearance, texture or feel of the treated surface, though in the case of highly polished natural stone substrates, the shine will diminish slightly, creating a translucent finish. The shine will therefore be reduced, but will not be lost completely.
LIFE OF THE TREATMENT The minimum life expectancy of antiSLIP is 3 years, but could be longer, dependant on the level of foot traffic and environmental factors.
In order to increase the longevity of the antiSLIP treatment we recommend Step 4 Cleaner / Degreaser be used for ongoing cleaning and maintenance. Step 4 is available in 5l containers and dilutes 1 part to 12.5/25 parts water.
WARRANTY We offer a 12 month warranty against defective materials or workmanship.
