What is the least slippery floor?

The least smooth floor surface should have a textured surface, good adhesion, low gloss or matt finish, and can quickly absorb moisture. Durability qualities include asphalt, cork, wood and low-pile carpets. Even surfaces with these qualities must be installed correctly, kept clean and well maintained to prevent falling and slipping. Surfaces with high polish or low natural gloss (such as marble, travertine, and ceramic tiles) are the most slippery. For safety reasons, we should choose non-slip flooring. Let's take a look at the list of non-slip flooring.



List of least slippery floors

Asphalt floor

Asphalt is one of the most matte floor surfaces. Asphalt shingles are specially developed for wet conditions. They are commonly used in commercial and residential basements because tiles are cheap and non-slip. This hard non-flexible floor is installed on the wooden floor using black adhesive. Asphalt bricks are usually 9 x 9 inches thick and 1/8 inch thick. One disadvantage of asphalt shingles is that they are difficult to remove.


Cork floor

Another non-slip floor is cork, which can also absorb sound, insulate sound and provide cushioning under the feet. Cork flooring is made of molded and compressed cork bark and natural cork resin. The materials are heated and cured under pressure to bond them. Cork flooring is expensive and can be used in residential as well as hospitals and commercial buildings. One of the advantages of cork stoppers is their sustainability. The trees are not felled. Instead, the bark is removed and it will fully grow in nine years.


Hardwood floors

The classic and attractive alternative is hardwood floors. Hardwood floors are common in homes, but they can also be used in commercial settings. In order to provide non-slip performance for industrial wooden floors, government agencies recommend adding metal particles or artificial abrasives to the varnish covering the floor. Other preventive measures include wiping off spills immediately and avoiding carpets.



How to choose non-slip flooring

1. Water absorption

The water absorption of the floor determines whether there will be blackening and mildew during use. If the water absorption rate is lower, the tile is better.


2. Wear resistance

The floor is often rubbed and touched during use, and the material is not good enough, and the brick surface is easy to be scratched and scratches appear. At the same time, after a long period of use, the "erosion" of external particles such as dust will cause the area of the tiles to sink dirt, become dark and difficult to clean, and affect the appearance.


3. Antifouling

In household cleaning, choosing a ceramic tile with good anti-fouling properties can beautify the home environment while eliminating the trouble of cleaning stubborn dirt and stains, greatly improving the efficiency of sanitation and cleaning.



The above is the introduction of the types of non-slip floor shared for everyone this time, I hope it will be helpful to the decoration of your home!
