There is no discernible change in the look or dry feel of your floor when professionally applied. When wet, the surface becomes LESS slippery. For fiberglass tubs, some people choose to have us a apply a light topical solution to improve traction, but you can only notice the application, up close.
In most cases, awards are based on negligence. Did the business know there was a risk, and did they take action. There is case history, where hotels have hired a professional to treat their floors, and they were not sued, when a fall occurred. Our service reduces the likelihood someone can defend a negligence claim.
Costs vary depending on the details, but floors generally run between $2.00 and $2.50 per square foot, depending on the surface and square footage. Industrial coatings can be more, depending on the surface and square footage involved. Tubs and showers are quoted on a per tub/shower basis, depending on volume. We have a $100 minimum, but the "per tub price" to around $50 per tub, if we are handling multiple tubs.
Yes, our service comes with a 2 year warranty, but we also offer very affordable continued maintenance options, for a very low rate, that can extend your warranty to 5 or 7 years.
Upon receipt of your 2 year warranty documenting your new slip resistant SCOF numbers you should have your insurance agent fax the document to underwriting for reclassification and adjustment.
We can't guarantee that no one will ever fall on a treated floor but we do guarantee that your floor will meet or exceed government and industry standards for a "safe walking surface", which is a COF of .6.
Our treatment changes the surface in such a way that when exposed to water the floor is actually measurably less slippery when it is wet than when it is dry.
Yes and no. Authorized distributors such as Trinity Surface Solutions purchase in higher concentrations from the manufacturer, AND we have the tools, training, and certification to apply the products.
Tubs or showers typically take less than 1 hour; commercial applications average 2 hours for every 1000 sf.
The surface is ready for use immediately, there is no cure time.
Virtually all types of businesses can benefit from a NON-SLIP Floor Treatment.
If you stay in business long enough statistics indicate that it is inevitable that someone will suffer a slip and fall at some point. The problem is universal across all business types.
If your business meets the IRS requirements of a "small business" you will qualify for the tax credit. Speak with your accountant or visit the IRS website and review IRS form # 8826 for definitions.
Your licensed NON-SLIP applicator will be able to determine if your floor can be treated.
Properly applied, the treatment does not cause a noticeable reduction in shine.
Many floors do not need any special treatment in order to maintain their slip resistance but certain environments such as kitchens require products which eliminate grease and prevent a buildup which would degrade our treatment.
They have been specifically designed and tested to be more effective against grease and oil.
