S.M.A.R.T is an Australian owned company that uses market leading technology and innovative techniques to deliver fast, high quality repairs to drivable vehicles that have sustained low to medium range collision damage.
The company, in its bid to ensure client and employee safety, contacted Grip Guard Non Slip to obtain expert floor safety advice. While its painted floors provided an attractive and easy to service area, management wanted to ensure that the floor was also slip resistant.
Slip and fall accidents are the second largest workplace accident. By ensuring that floors meet Australian Standards of slip resistance, business owners can reduce the likelihood of these accidents. A simple anti slip treatment, such as the application of non slip tapes, can protect employees and guests and prevent accidents that often lead to expensive litigation.
In this case, because the floor was painted, Grip Guard anti slip floor safety treatment was not deemed to be suitable. Therefore, in consultation with management, Grip Guard identified the key areas of risk and designed a cost-effective non slip solution utilising non slip tapes for the service area.
UltraGrip non slip tapes have been described as having the highest slip resistance available in the industry. The tapes provide outstanding adhesion properties, providing a long term non slip solution. UltraGrip anti slip tapes are available in a range of colours including black, safety yellow, and hazard stripe.
For more aesthetically sensitive areas, AquaGrip transparent marine grade tape can be used to create slip resistance with minimal change to the floor appearance.
For tiled or stone floors, Grip Guard anti slip floor safety treatment can be utilised to permanently increase the slip resistance of floors. Unlike non slip floor coatings, this treatment will not wear away. And, unlike non slip etches, the floor remains shiny and easy to clean.
Grip Guard Non Slip has representatives throughout Australia including Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Darwin as well as the Gold Coast, McKay, Newcastle and other selected regional areas.
