Choosing the right floor tiles for the home is a fun, sometimes frustrating job.
But make the wrong decision and we at Friction Systems Australia get the dreaded “post slip fall phone call” where a family member or visitor has taken a nasty fall on the tiled floor in the kitchen, family room or bathroom and they would really like us to reduce slip fall risk. After asking a few basic questions it almost always surfaces that the owner of the property was aware that the tiles were slippery from the day of installation but by always being careful and keeping the surface dry and contamination free they had avoided this accident up until today.
The really disturbing thing about these calls is how common it is for people to compromise the safety of family members and visitors to achieve a visual objective.
Don’t take risks with your families health, take a look at this article that will get you started on the right path.
