It is customary for the floor to be treated after it has been laid. This can lead to unpleasant surprises and conflicts between the customer and the layer. In the past, we also treated floors with acid and are therefore well aware of the pitfalls of this process. Performed on-site, this technique neither guarantees the desired result nor frees parties of liability in the event of accidents. And this means the parties are taking an unnecessary risk by investing in the project. Even to laypeople, the changes and corrosion are visible to the naked eye. Imagine the frustration for a contractor when a customer brings up these alterations. It’s even more annoying when some parts of the floor are less slip-resistant than others.
Increased slip resistance for polished as well as matt floor and stair coverings, in particular made of mineral materials such as granite, marble, artificial stones, porcelain stoneware, ceramics. The aesthetic appearance is largely retained.
As early as possible. Meaning in the early stages of planning. Then you can save costs, because you can already plan the delivery date for the finished flooring. In contrast, the worst time is once slippery material has already been installed. Then there are only two alternatives: either I tear out the flooring again to install a newly finished one. Or I work on the flooring directly on site, which usually causes more costs and delivers an unstable result. Then that would not be a certified surface finish.
The haid-tec® process as a mechanical process to achieve a defined slip resistance reaches the slip resistance classes R9, R10, R11 for the commercial sector and classes A, B, C for barefoot areas.
