ANTI-SLIP SOLUTIONS



The GripTek solution is a micro-etch that uses acids to microscopically alter the surface of your floor to create grip, making it safe. There is minimal change to the look of the surface when dry, but maximum grip when wet. Floors are ready for use immediately after treatment and surfaces remain safe even when exposed to water, grease and oil. GripTek provides a range of cleaning products that you can use to maintain the anti-slip floor
surface post-treatment.

The team at GripTek has many years of experience in the industry, offering anti-slip solutions and products that make your floors safe from slips. Using an exclusive range of proven anti-slip solutions and cleaning products, GripTek is proud to offer an industryleading 6-year warranty.

Slip Rating Classifications

We provide Slip Rating classifications as a guide, based on a slip test report. As we have no information on the ultimate environment in which the tiles will be laid, we are not responsible for the suitability of the tiles for the environment in which they are laid.

Our tiles may achieve an acceptable rating in a laboratory test, however it is quite possible that the performance in-situ will be less than expected due to unforeseen circumstances, such as grouting, wear and tear, or build up of residue. Variables such as floor levels, water, oil and other contaminants affecting tiles are beyond the control of the supplier.

These results are therefore to be seen as a guide to estimate the merits of one tile verses the other. Please refer to the Australian Standards
AS.HB.198 2014 Table 3A and 3B, which indicates locations that correspond to the relevant Pendulum and/or Ramp ratings.

We note that if these results have a value that may appear acceptable, the results must not be interpreted that Surface Gallery Pty. Ltd. will provide any liability against damages for slipping on tiles.

You should at all times provide information to your clients that all floor tiles can be slippery, especially when wet. Many tiles which can be slippery when wet are commonly used in wet areas, such as bathrooms and kitchens.

All customers should be aware of wet tiles, and seek advice from the relevant consultants as to the level of slip-resistance of any particular tile and its suitability for the intended application, as no liability can be accepted for personal injury or accidents arising from slipping or falling, under any circumstances.
