SLIP RESISTANT FLOORS
Making your bathroom floor slip resistant can go a long way in improving safety. We can install tiles of a variety of finishes, with non-slip options being particularly important for use in areas prone to moisture and water, such as bathrooms and shower areas.
Non-slip tiles typically feature an abrasive grip that is added to the glaze during the manufacturing process, or the surface may be textured in a way that creates friction and grip when wet.
This provides an important safety feature that can help prevent slips and falls in wet environments.
Additionally, non-slip tiles are often easier to clean and maintain than traditional tiles, as they are less likely to accumulate dirt and grime.

When it comes to enhancing safety and accessibility in the bathroom, grab bars are an excellent and simple solution to address many concerns. They provide essential support for people with disabilities as they navigate around the bathroom, ensuring safe access to the bathtub, shower, and toilet without the risk of falls. Another effective option to prevent falls is the use of non-slip rugs and flooring.
Non-slip mats in the tub or around the shower, toilet, and sink can significantly reduce the risk of slips and falls in areas where water is present. Additionally, investing in more accessible bathing options can be highly beneficial for those with limited mobility.
Whether it is a walk-in or roll-in tub, a portable shower, or the addition of a shower chair, these options help individuals maintain their independence while bathing.
By taking these precautions, the bathroom can be made more accessible and safe for everyone.
The bathroom can be a hazardous place, particularly for individuals with limited mobility or disabilities. Some common hazards include slippery surfaces, absence of grab bars, difficulty in reaching items, and lack of accessible shower or toilet stalls. These hazards can make it challenging for people with mobility issues to use the bathroom safely and independently.
To ensure safe access to a bathroom, it is crucial to prioritise safety awareness and precautionary measures. By proactively creating a safe and accessible environment, potential anxieties and concerns can be mitigated, providing peace of mind for users.
