If you have an outdoor area or an area that you use to entertain regularly, you’ll know that you need a good floor, one that looks good and that is also safe. Because the conditions outside are so different to inside, you’ll need to ensure that your outdoor flooring is non slip. Here are some options for you.
Why is Outdoor Nonslip Flooring Important?
If you are installing any type of flooring outdoors, it is important that it is nonslip. There are a number of reasons for this. Firstly, outdoor areas are subject to getting wet, whether that’s through rain, using water to clean the floor, or by splashes from the pool. As anyone knows, wet floors equal slippery floors, so it is important to make them as nonslip as possible, so someone doesn’t slip in a puddle and seriously injure themselves. Outdoor flooring can also be very smooth surfaced, which may look good but can be a disaster waiting to happen. Kids also like to play outside and they’re not likely to be careful when they are running over floors. Nonslip floors reduce the risk of kids taking a painful tumble onto hard surfaces.
Options in Outdoor Nonslip Flooring
Thankfully, there are several options for outdoor nonslip flooring. An excellent one is outdoor non slip tiles. These are laid in the same way as regular tiles but they have a textured surface that provides grip to the foot without detracting from the natural beauty of the tile at all. As well as outdoor non slip tiles, you can choose from a range of natural stone and concrete pavers that have a rough textured finish. Non slip rubber flooring is another great option.
Making Existing Outdoor Flooring Nonslip
Of course, if you have existing outdoor flooring, you may not want to rip it up just to replace it with a nonslip alternative. Thankfully, there is a solution. You can apply a special nonslip or anti slip coating to your existing smooth surfaced floor, whether it is tiles, cement, smooth pavers, or even timber. The coating contains tiny particles that provide a rough surface for feet or shoes to adhere to.
