From balconies to pool decks to parking structures, it’s crucial to ensure that your deck surface coating is slip-resistant and free of cracks that can cause accidents. The safety of customers and employees is a top priority for any facility. Therefore, you need a long-lasting deck coating that safeguards your structure and the people who walk on it.
On top of that, these critical surfaces should also present an attractive appearance to appeal to customers. For example, the anti-skid coating by Raider Painting offers protection to traffic and elements and contributes significantly to the space’s aesthetics.
What Is Non-Skid Coating?
Non-skid coating is applied using anti-slip paint and coatings, with the addition of broadcast aggregates as required, to increase the grip of surfaces. Untreated floors can be extremely slippery if left to the elements. Therefore, they become a hazard for both customers and employees. When you are responsible for the safety of people, it’s necessary to take extra steps in securing their welfare. Applying a non-skid deck coating to your floors is a simple and effective solution for slippery surfaces.
Common Uses for Non-Skid Deck Coating
Non-skid coatings can be used in various applications, but they are primarily for high-traffic areas that are prone to slippage. Decks, ladders, pools, flooring, walkways and scaffolding are just some areas that need a non-skid coating to reduce the risk of accidents.
Anti-skid coating is also widely used on steel and aluminum substrates that are subject to corrosion. Proper coating application on steel provides corrosion protection and wear-resistant properties.
Surfaces That Can Be Treated With Anti-Skid Coating
Anti-skid coatings can be applied to a variety of materials. They work well with vinyl composition tiles, concrete, ceramic tiles, polished stone and metal decking. These coatings prevent slips and falls no matter what surface you apply them to.
