Laws around the world say you need to have safer floors, you need PosiGrip®

Who Can Benefit from PosiGrip®

According to the National Safety Council there are over 9 million disabling slip/fall injuries every year. Fast Food oulets, nursing homes, restaurants, office buildings, banks, hospitals, malls, spas, country clubs, and bathroom & showers are just some of the facilities that NEED to have PosiGrip® applied. The very young who play, slip and slide in the bathtub or the elderly and infirm who may lose their balance and have no chance to recover on a slippery bathtub surface are the primary people who will benefit with PosiGrip®. All the people in between the young and the elderly who think it will never happen to them (until it does) will also find PosiGrip® very beneficial.

Who Needs PosiGrip®?

The list is almost endless - restaurants, motels, theaters, shopping malls, convenience stores, dry cleaners, laundromats, medical offices, hospitals, nursing homes, private schools, day care centers, public school systems, amusement arcades, health clubs, bowling alleys, and the list goes on and on.

Benefits
Who Can Benefit from PosiGrip®

The young and the old are most prone to slip fall accidents. Apart from them all the people in between the young and the elderly who think it will never happen to them (until it does) will also find PosiGrip® very beneficial. PosiGrip® provides safety to residents, employees, customer, family, in short PosiGrip® provides safety to people that are significant in your life in one-way or another.

95,000,000 Days Lost From Work! 35% of all work related injuries are slip/fall and account for 65% of time lost from work.

Research shows that:

  • Fractured bones are the most common injury resulting from falls

  • The hip (neck of the femur) is the most commonly fractured bone

  • Most falls happen at home

  • Falls become more common with increasing age.

85% of all slip and fall injuries can be prevented. Although the aged are at the greatest risk, there are still measures that can help prevent the chances of the elderly suffering from accidents caused by slippery floor surfaces. PosiGrip has a solution for every slippery floor area.

FAQ's

What is PosiGrip?
PosiGrip is a surface changing chemical treatment (not a coating), which reduces the risk and danger of slips and falls the resulting potential for injury and lawsuits, litigation costs, employee days off and injuries to family and friends.


What chemicals are used and how do they work?
PosiGrip uses a uniquely formulated eight compound chemical to create a long lasting, slip resistant surface on most mineral surfaces. The reaction creates a microscopic tread pattern on the surface, not unlike millions of tiny suction cups. When this surface is wet, these suction cups work to provide a dramatic increase in the SCOF (Static Coefficient of Friction) so reducing the chance of a slip and fall accident.


Will the treatment change the appearance or colour of the surface?
No. However, if the original surface has a very high gloss, treating it with PosiGrip may slightly dull its appearance. Unfortunately, very shiny surfaces are not safe surfaces, particularly when wet. In most instances, however, the change to the surface will not be visible to the naked eye. Before a PosiGrip Operator treats any surface, a small portion will be tested so that the owner can satisfy himself as to both the appearance and the slip resistance achieved.


Will PosiGrip damage the grouting?
No. It will clean and in most cases, bring the grout back to its original colour.


Will this treatment prevent all slip and fall accidents?
No. There are many reasons why slip & fall accidents are the second major cause of injuries in the USA (after motor related accidents) Surface conditions, spillages, footwear, poor housekeeping and avoidable hazards all contribute to such accidents. However, the single largest contributor to slip & fall accidents is deemed to be wetted surface conditions and this is where PosiGrip is designed to dramatically reduce your risks.


How long will the effectiveness of the treatment last?
This depends upon several factors including the type of surface material, proper initial application, good floor cleaning practices and the frequency and the type of traffic the floor receives. All treatments are guaranteed for a minimum of 2 years and in many circumstances one can anticipate many more years of improved traction.


Does it work on all surfaces?
It works on any form of ceramic tile, most stone surfaces and even agglomerates. Anything with a silica molecular base, including concrete, responds very well. Unfortunately the process does not work on wood, vinyl, epoxy or fiberglass surfaces.


How do we know it really works?
An accepted measurement of "slipperiness" can be made measuring the Standard Coefficient of Friction of a wetted surface and comparing this to the accepted levels set down by the ASTM
(American Society for the Testing of Materials). Our consultants are equipped with a Slip meter to take both before and after measurements of a sample portion of your floor, which will prove the efficiency of the treatment. Even without this, your own foot will immediately feel the difference, so great is the improvement in the traction!


Who actually does the job?
Fully trained licensed operators take responsibility for the entire project. The process must of necessity be done with caution and with proper preparation. Before any work is undertaken a small sample area is tested to arrive at the correct formulation and treatment timings. This is not a procedure for the DIY enthusiast.


Can the treatment be done at a convenient time to me?
Certainly. Many of our clients run businesses that cannot be disrupted during working hours. We can do the job at any time, which is convenient


Who can benefit from PosiGrip?
Everyone! Fast food outlets, nursing homes, restaurants, office buildings, banks, hospitals, hotels, shopping malls, country clubs as well as private homes with bathrooms, jacuzzi's and patios.


Are there any special cleaning requirements after I have my floor treated?
Cleaner the floor, more effective the treatment. If dirt, oil or any other contaminants are allowed to stay on the floor it will impregnate the microscopic suction cups and dramatically reduce the SCOF.


Can a treated surface be waxed, sealed or coated afterwards?
No. Waxing, sealing or coating a treated surface will neutralize the effectiveness of a treatment.
It will tend to clog or fill the micro suction cups on the surface thereby negating its slip resistant properties.


When can I walk on the treated surface?
Immediately after the surface has been treated, there is no waiting or setting time required.


What will it cost to 'safety proof' my floors with PosiGrip?
Each installation varies in price depending upon the surface material, the layout and the size. Because different surfaces require different formulations of the chemical we cannot give a simple price based upon the area treated. The ultimate price will be far less than replacing your tiles and the hospitalization cost in the event of a serious slip or fall accident! (or the cost of successful litigation by an injured client)
