Safe When Wet of the Carolinas has proven, cost effective solutions for every type of residential floor currently on the market, including solutions for tile, stone, garage floors, wood floors, tubs, and showers. Our approach will increase the Coefficient of Friction (COF) these surfaces, so they meet ADA standards and improve the safety of your family and guests. Our Anti-slip Process generally involves 4 steps:
1. Identification – We conduct a walkway audit of your facility to identify potential slip and fall hazards needing attention.
2. Measurement – Safe When Wet then uses a professional –grade Slip Meter, to assess the Static Coefficient of Friction ( S.C.O.F ) of your floors, to determine if your floors meet ADA or OSHA guidelines.
3. Treatment – We prefer to first treat a small area with our proprietary process, at NO COST TO YOU, so you can experience the difference between the “treated” and “untreated” surfaces. Once you have approved the full service, we will apply the “micro-tread” treatment to your entire floor, until your SCOF exceeds OSHA/ADA guidelines.
4. Follow-up – Even though our treatment is guaranteed for several years, Safe When Wet conducts scheduled, bi-annual visits to test and measure treated areas to ensure proper traction levels are maintained.
Our process for tubs and other surfaces is similar.
Bath Tubs and Shower Floors
Bathrooms can be the most dangerous room in your home. Over the last several years, we have seen rapid growth in the number of tile floors, showers, and ceramic tubs in new or remodeled homes. While beautiful in appearance, these surfaces become very slippery, and even dangerous when wet – especially for seniors and small children.
Safe When Wet of the Carolinas can we can treat your ceramic or fiberglass tubs with our long lasting durable tub grip, raising the Coefficient of Friction (COF) to safe levels for users, making it anti slip with no appearance change.
We have a similar product that can be applied to your tile floors, that will increase the Coefficient of Friction (COF) to safe levels for users, making it anti slip with no change to the appearance of your floor. And the entire process takes less than 1 hour.
Pool Decks, Walkways and Lanais
Our anti-slip treatment is a non-yellowing, transparent, easy-to-apply liquid cure and seal. It provides a clear, flexible and durable abrasion- and stain-resistant protective film.
