Reasons To Choose Anti Slip Tiles For Your Space
If you’re looking to buy and install tiles for your home spaces (especially your bathroom), one of the main concerns will probably be safety which we will discover about anti slip tiles in this article.
While most homes feature different types of tiling for its different spaces (such as bathrooms vs bedrooms), some spaces require tiles that are specially-built for certain purposes. This is especially true for bathroom tiles – they should always be anti slip!
As anti slip tiles play an important role in general safety of bathrooms, kitchens and outdoors, this comprehensive guide will help you find out all there is to know about anti slip tiles, their different benefits and how to stylishly match your anti slip tiles with the rest of your home spaces!
What Are Anti Slip Tiles?
In simple terms, anti slip tiles are specially-designed tiling material that is made to reduce the risk of slipping and injury.
The anti slip properties are often created by first utilising non-smooth surfaces to texture the tile itself. In this case, when water or any other types of liquid is present, you are less likely to slip and have the confident feeling of still standing on your feet!
While most anti slip tile surfaces will feel textured and less smooth to the touch when compared to standard tiles, Niro Granite’s Slip Stop tiles are smooth on the surface and they are just as durable and stylish as most other tiles out there in the market.
To help you identify the right ones, tiles are tested for its slip resistance and are given ratings to denote its suitability for the application area, which makes it easier to choose tiles that can better protect you from slips and falls at your home.
One of the more important ratings to look at is Pendulum Test (P) ratings. This rating helps identify the frictional resistance of the tile itself, with 1 being the least and 5 being the best.
In this case, most anti slip tiles with Pendulum Test (P) Ratings of 3 and above will be an excellent choice to add safety and style as well as being low-maintenance in terms of cleaning!
