How do I make my garage floor less slippery?
Identifying the Risk
Car parking is one of if not the most common uses for garages. By dragging snow, sleet, and rain water into the garage, however, garages can become wet, slippery, and dangerous. Workshops, pets, and other activities can also lead to wet garage floors. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over one million Americans suffer a slip, trip, and fall injury and over 17, 000 people die in the U.S. annually because of these injuries.
What Can I Do About It?
Traditional garage flooring solutions such as epoxy are perhaps even more slippery than bare concrete. When wet, so are embossed vinyl and plastic floor tiles. Fortunately, a patented non-slip roll out flooring product line called Garage® Grip exists to help mitigate this risk.
Garage Grip meets both ANSI 137.1 and AS HB198:2014 international pendulum slip resistance tests both wet and dry. AS HB198:2014 is the gold standard for guidance relating to pedestrian surfaces.
This patented composite roll out flooring is specified by Fortune 500 Oil & Gas and Electric Power companies throughout the US to prevent worker slips and chemical spills while being deployed beneath industrial equipment and vehicles.
Non abrasive, naturally stain resistant, and ultra-durable, Garage Grip has been put to the test by leading garage industry consumer advocates.
Whether you are seeking an effective, affordable, and convenient-to-install non slip flooring solution for your garage or whether you want to transform your garage into a safe, stylish, and comfortable space, Garage Grip may be the perfect solution for your garage floor.
