Non-Slip Flooring Done by Webfoot

What can you put on concrete to make it not slippery? A non-slip concrete coating is a guaranteed way to make your unfinished concrete not only fabulous but safe. Both you and your concrete will benefit from durable, high-quality, non-slip flooring.

A concrete coating will transform cracked concrete into a smooth, easy-to-clean, and damage-resistant surface. With the recommended addition of anti-slip additives, you’ll have a floor that won’t worry you again – not with a drab look or the risk of a fall.

When completed, your polyurea concrete coating will shine with a high-gloss finish, but silica sand will give it grip despite its smooth appearance.

High-Gloss Polyurea Concrete Coatings Look Slippery But Aren’t

Webfoot’s pure polyurea coatings are appreciated for their smooth and high-gloss finish. At a glance, it’s easy to feel concerned about the surface being slippery when wet. It’s required for outdoor (patios, entranceways, and walkways) and pool-deck coatings to include a slip-resistant additive, but it’s also good to consider if this is useful in an indoor space. If you’re using your garage as a home gym, or want to coat your mudroom, choosing to include silica sand in your topcoat is a safe choice. Or, if you’re coating a steep surface like an inclined walkway.

There are two types of silica sand as options: 4095 heavy grit and a lighter, shark grip. Or, you can use a mixture.

Versatile Non-Slip Coatings for High-Traffic Spaces

A non-slip concrete coating is also a way to improve commercial entryways or walkways, in cold climates where exposed concrete can be damaged by the use of snowmelt and rock salt. In these situations, a coating with an anti-slip additive is a long-lasting and safe improvement.
