Slips, trips and falls often occur in the winter months when floors become wet, slippery and dangerous. These accidents are amongst the most common in the UK and can easily be prevented by applying an anti slip coating or installing Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP).
Read our guide to learn more about our anti slip solutions and why these are best suited to your project, or call our Technical Advisors on 01 6725 180 and they will be more than happy to help.
Watco has pioneered the use of polyaspartic resins in Europe. This is a new type of paint technology which allows floor paints to dry in the coldest of temperatures. The polyaspartic resins are two-part products, with a base resin and an activator which are mixed together at the point of use to begin the curing process. See our products below:
We have modified our 100% solids epoxy resin formulas, so they cure at colder temperatures. See our products below:
An instant safety solution for slippery surfaces is to install GRP. This is ideal for areas that cannot easily be painted. GRP is a practical solution that saves money and time as it's very quick and easy to install. We can cut to size and pre-drill the products free of charge, leaving you to just screw them in place.

Measuring the effectiveness of a non-slip treatment is carried out using a device called Pendulum SRT. The pendulum arm has a rubber pad at the end of its free end; this rubber acts as a sole. As the rubber sole passes over the ground a roughness mark is calculated. The standard requirement for pedestrian use is >45, this is measured from a highest (most slip resistant) score of 100.
The Pendulum Test Value (PTV) is measured in wet conditions. A number above 36 indicates a ‘low slip potential’.
High: 0-24 PTV
