Paint & Anti Slip


Which product can I use on a wheelchair ramp? Can I coat it with something to make it a bit safer and anti slip?

Safety Coat Plus® is a good solution for this. You can apply it in one thick coat, by roller, and it stays slip resistant even when it gets wet. You don’t need a primer if your ramp is made of concrete or wood. If it is difficult to close the ramp while a coating dries, I would recommend our Anti Slip FRP Sheets. These are heavy duty, non slip fiberglass panels that you just lay in place and screw down, so you can put the ramp back into use straightaway.





I’m fed up having to keep replacing all our line markings in our warehouse.  The tape we use doesn’t seem to last 5 minutes, have you got line marking products that are hard wearing?

You won’t have the same problems with our  Heavy Duty Line Marking Tape. It sticks really well and is much thicker than normal floor marking tape.  If you like, you can test it for yourself; I’ll send you a free sample, put the sample down in the worst area and see what happens!

Which paint should I use for parking spaces? I’ve also heard that paint can also soften asphalt. Is this true?

Anti Slip Traffic Paint is ideal for this as it’s especially designed for asphalt and won’t soften it.  It is very flexible which helps if it’s in full sun and the color won’t fade either.  It’s quick to apply by roller, you can brush out the lines, and it dries quickly with a fine texture to help make it anti slip.






Which is the best paint for concrete loading bays with a metal edge, it gets really slippery and I’m worried that somebody’s going to fall off it. Do you have anything that can help with this?

I would recommend Safety Coat Rapid Cure which is a really tough anti slip epoxy coating.  It goes on to concrete or metal and is perfect for high traffic areas because of it’s quick curing properties.  If the loading bay is unheated use Safety Coat Plus® Cold Cure as this will dry in temperatures as low as 32°F.

Do you have anything anti slip for wooden stairs and decking? I’ve been asked by our local school to make an area of wooden decking safe, as some of the children have slipped on it in wet weather.  It takes a lot of wear and I don’t think I can use an anti slip paint because of the grooves in the decking.  Any ideas?

Fiberglass Decking Strips are perfect for the decking. They are thin strips of anti slip fiberglass which you just lay onto the wood and screw down - it doesn’t matter if the wood is wet or dirty.  We pre-drill them and provide the screws and we can cut them to your required length free of charge.  We’ve just brought out a ‘Medium Grade’ version which has a less abrasive surface just in case a child does fall over for any reason.  These would be ideal and are quick and easy to use. FRP Step Covers would be great for the stairs.

What can you suggest for a ramp which runs up to our warehouse door and gets slippery in the wet?  It’s in constant use so I haven’t got time to wait for a paint to dry.

I’d recommend our Anti Slip FRP Sheets for this because they are very easy to install.  They are heavy duty, anti slip fiberglass sheets which you just put into place and screw down.  They can then be trafficked straight away which means you can put the area back into use almost immediately.

Can you tell me how to make diamond plate steps anti slip? I currently paint it but it wears off easily, I don’t want to keep re-painting if the same thing is going to happen again.  What can I do?

Painting a diamond plate surface is a bit of a nightmare as the paint just doesn’t stay on the high spots. I wouldn’t recommend going down the paint route again; instead use Conformable Safety Tape or Conformable Slip Free Treads.  They’ve got a flexible aluminum base which is perfect for diamond plate and all you do is peel off the backing and knock it into place using a rubber hammer. The tape and treads are tough, anti slip and fit around all the contours of the diamond plate.



How do I paint or seal the concrete floor in our garage workshop? Our garage workshop is made of concrete and has been painted over the years and we keep finding that within a couple of days the paint lifts off where the cars have been parked. Do you have a floor paint that won't lift with car tires?

This is a common problem with single pack paints, especially if the car tires are new. Tires contain oils which soften paint, and if the car has been driven and the tires are still warm, this makes it even worse. Don’t worry though; there is something that I would recommend - High Build Epoxy. The epoxy resin is unaffected by the tires and oils, it’s really hard wearing and it will stay on your floor and not on your tires!

Do you have any floor paint that’s suitable for dog kennels? We have tried to paint it in the past without much success.  The paint scratches up easily and then starts to peel off in places.

Yes we do!  Safety Coat Plus® Cold Cure  would be perfect for this.  We often get asked this question and we always recommend this coating.  You’re probably busy during the summer and therefore have to carry out maintenance in the winter.  Safety Coat Plus® Cold Cure is designed for low temperatures and has excellent abrasion and chemical resistance.  Also, if the coating is used in outside runs, you’ll be pleased to know that this doesn’t fade when the sun gets to it.

How do I waterproof a plant room floor? I am worried about water leaking through into the offices below. I need something that is waterproof and flexible, can you help?

Liquid Waterproofer is ideal for this because it is a thick waterproofer which makes it really good for filling in cracks and joints.  It is also flexible so if there is any movement in the floor it won’t crack. It is chemical resistant and has excellent adhesion properties; you may also want to look at the High Build Epoxy Plus Chemical Resisant.
