Anti-Slip Technology Improves Public Safety

Each year, an average of 37.3 million people are injured due to trips, slips and falls, in both public and domestic environments. 

Neolith Slip-No-More differs from other anti-slip finishes as it is applied to the surface of the material during production.

As a result, architects, interior designers and urban planners are looking at ways in which to prevent this occurrence.

A number of products currently exist which give surfaces more friction, from paints, tapes and coatings to acid-etched grooving and rubber matting. While initially effective, these solutions are short-term and need to be replaced or reapplied on a regular basis, especially in public spaces with heavy footfall.

Responding to a call for a long-term solution, Neolith has announced the launch of Neolith Slip-No-More.

This anti-slip technology meets the demands of specifiers looking for a material to improve public safety and well-being.

Designed to Last

Neolith Slip-No-More differs from other anti-slip finishes as it is applied to the surface of the material during production, before the Sintered Stone has been fired.

An optional enhancement, unlike anti-slip treatments, which are applied as a surface finish post-process and have a limited working life, Neolith’s technology is incorporated during manufacturing. This means the anti-slip qualities of the slab will remain effective during its lifetime with no need for maintenance.

This development highlights Neolith’s commitment to manufacturing fit-for-purpose surfaces which meet and surpass global health and safety standards and requirements.
