Understanding our ranges

Understanding our ranges

Sustainable slip resistance: Surestep is suitable for use in a wide variety of applications, such as general walking areas, where there is an increased slip risk. Surestep is the optimum combination of slip resistance and ease of maintenance.

Surestep Decibel
A selection of Original, Wood and Material colourways are also available in Surestep Decibel. This product is ideal for areas where a combination of increased impact sound reduction (17 dB) and slip resistance is required.

Original, Star, Steel, Material, Wood, Laguna, Digital Print, Decibel

Products in this category are ideal for use in areas where a high slip risk has been identified from continuous contamination of the floor. In these areas it is simply not possible to prevent spillages, due to the type of work being conducted. The optimum product choice will be determined by the area of use and type of contamination.

Safestep R11, Safestep R12

Wetroom floor products are developed for use in continuously wet areas, where water flows frequently and barefoot traffic is the standard, or where a combination of barefoot and footwear traffic is expected.
