  • Microgrip – Slip Resistant Treatment

    MARBLELIFE Groutlife Services – Microgrip

    If you have tile in your building, you have a potential slip-and-fall condition if you are not actively managing the situation.  Management requires planning on how to handle grease, water and dust, the lubricating medium most likely to be involved in a flat surface slip and fall.

    Boost the coefficient-of-friction of your floor surface can assist you greatly.  MARBLELIFE offers ceramic, slate and porcelain tile treatments capable of boosting coefficient-of-friction to between 0.7 to 0.8 while maintaining a glossy appearance.  The range places one in the optimal window per the Veteran’s Administation.  High enough to provide solid traction, while not being so high as to create a trip hazard.  Need more? MARBLELIFE can provide additional traction control.
