At GripzAll, we hold ourselves to the highest standards with the services we offer, and in every aspect of the work we do. Our workforce is highly trained and qualified to meet all your needs, dedicated to offering diverse and specialized services tailored to our client’s unique preferences and situation. Take a look at some of the anti-slip services we offer below.
FLOORS, WALKWAYS AND RAMPS
Safer floors, wet or dry. We treat virtually any commercial, industrial or residential floor to make it slip resistant. Immediately after treatment you will have the peace-of-mind knowing your floors will meet or exceed B101.1 ANSI, OSHA and ADA floor safety standards. Treated surfaces meeting these guidelines may help you avoid penalties, significantly lower your insurance premiums, protect against liability and lawsuits and, businesses that apply our anti-slip products may even be eligible for substantial tax credits.
BATH TUBS AND SHOWERS
Your bathroom is the most dangerous room in your house. Injuries near the bath tub or shower account for over two-thirds of emergency room visits. Trends toward tiles, marble and granite surfaces mixed with water create a dangerous synergy! Our long-lasting, anti-slip treatment will make your surfaces safe and with no appearance change.
POOL DECKS AND LANAIS
Every year approximately 155,000 injuries occur in or around swimming pools many as a result of slip and fall accidents. With people getting in and out of the water, pool decks accumulate water becoming inherently dangerous. Injuries can be exacerbated if the victim falls into the pool after the fall. Unfortunately, not all slip and fall accidents are preventable or avoidable but it is very important to take safety precautions to ensure your guests are safe.
NEED HELP CHOOSING THE RIGHT PRODUCT?
We have anti-slip solutions for just about every floor and surface so if you're not sure what product is right for you, we're here to help. Give us a call at 843-855-2097. You can also email us a picture of your surface and we will suggest an option to increase traction.

Friction is the action of one surface or object rubbing against another.
There are two primary types of friction: dynamic friction and static friction.
Dynamic Friction is the friction between two moving surfaces or objects.
Static Friction is the friction between two objects that are not moving.
Static Coefficient of Friction (SCOF) is defined as the ratio of the horizontal component of force applied to a body that just overcomes the resistance to slipping to the vertical component of the weight of the object or force applied. The higher the number the lower probability of slipping occurs. Per NFSI B1010.1 SCOF > .60 is considered "HIGH TRACTION".
RESEARCH TO REALITY
Wayne Maynard, Manager of Technical Services and Product Development for Liberty Mutual's Loss Control Advisory Services said, "incremental increases in a floor's coefficient of friction (COF), can make a real difference in lowering slipping rates. For every 0.1 increase in a kitchen floor's COF, there was a corresponding 21 percent decrease in slips reported by workers. This tells us that any efforts to improve floor COF - keeping the floor clean and dry, applying floor surface treatments, or selecting slip-resistant floorings - can enhance worker safety and produce savings by reducing the rate of slipping".
