Oltco Resin Bound Driveways

Case Study: Sovereign Housing
Location: Berkshire
Product: Etchgrip Anti Slip Floor Treatment
Floor: Terrazzo
Size: 1650m²

Description:We were contacted by Sovereign Housing, a housing association who manage houses and blocks of flats across the South and South West of England.

Their problem was that their external and internal terrazzo communal areas within some of their housing blocks were very slippery when wet. We often get asked by Facilities managers, how they can make their terrazzo areas non slip.

We visited the site and carried out an assessment, which included pendulum slip tests and sample areas of some of our products. It was decided that our Etchgrip anti slip floor treatment would be the best solution for them.

As there was numerous sites that needed treating we came up with a works plan that would be convenient to the customer but more importantly the residents. Facilities managers sometimes worry about the inconvenience that can be caused with any potential works but our etchgrip anti slip floor treatment would allow us to make their terrazzo walkways non slip with very little disruption.

We carried out the anti slip floor treatment and the customers and residents were very happy with the finished results. Not only were the terrazzo walkways now non slip but they were easy to keep clean.

We have since carried out pendulum slip tests for Sovereign as well as further anti slip floor treatments and non slip coatings. We maintain six monthly contact and have now built a good working relationship.

Sovereign housing were very happy with the way the works were carried out and are also very impressed with the Etchgrip anti slip flooring treatment.
