Non-Slip Flooring Solutions
Federal laws like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as well as government regulations issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), recognize that non-slip flooring is essential for the well-being of employees, customers, and the general public. ADA requires that flooring be stable, firm, and slip resistant. OSHA is more specific, recommending that walking surfaces have a static coefficient of friction of 0.50.
Black Bear Coatings & Concrete can create non-slip flooring in a variety of ways, including concrete resurfacing, epoxy coatings, and polished concrete. Mechanically grinding and flattening a concrete floor increases the coefficient of friction when compared with ordinary concrete. A common misconception is that because polished concrete is shiny and glossy, it is slippery. On the contrary, polished concrete often exceeds OSHA standards for floors. Whether you have a facility where slick substances end up on the floor or it’s simply a top priority to ensure employee and customer safety, we can find the right non-slip flooring solution that will fit your needs and budget.
