The Most Important Places For Anti Slip Tiles
Most people know the slips and falls are dangerous, but many don’t realize that falls are the 2nd highest cause of death from unintentional injury around the world. With more of our lives being spend indoors than ever before, people are investing into anti slip or non-slip tiles, which are tiles that are specially manufactured to produce friction when wet, or tiles designed with rougher surfaces. With our revolutionary Slip-Stop tiles, we have created tiles that have smooth surfaces and yet produces an anti-slip effect when in contact with water.
To keep you and those you care about safe, here’s a list of our recommended spots to install Slip-Stop Tiles:
Material – Metal, Wood or Platic?
Oil and water do not mix – and they tend to pool when spilled, creating dangerous puddles in an environment that’s already filled with sharp, heavy, and hot objects! Our number one recommendation for where you should install Slip-Stop tiles is the kitchen.
Other than having anti-slip properties, Slip-Stop tiles are also stain-resistant, allowing you to easily clean up any accidental spills! Legacy from our Niro Granite Slip-Stop series does an amazing job of looking effortlessly elegant while keeping you safe.

Shower and Bathroom
Constantly wet means constantly slippery, and constantly slippery means a constant fall risk. Did you know that up to 80 percent of falls at home occur in the bathroom?
Unlike other areas, showers and bathrooms also tend to be very private spaces, which means someone who suffers a fall in them may not be able to get help as quickly as they would elsewhere. So be sure to prioritise these areas as well when you get your Slip-Stop tiles.
Here are some bathroom design ideas!
Floor Surfaces for Your Kitchen and Outdoors
Whether out on the porch or on the balcony, you know how slippery it can get when it rains. Depending on where you live, there is the chance of small amounts of oil building up on the ground which gets surfaced when it rains, creating slippery spots and increasing the risk of falls – if you’ve seen colourful rainbow patches in puddles, that’s actually oil.
Just as crucial as the kitchen, shower and bathroom areas, it’s definitely another area worthy of attention when deciding where to install Slip-Stop tiles. Check out Pedregal by Niro Granite for Slip-Stop styles that look great both indoors and outdoors!
