Slip resistance granite stairs

Once it happened, the anger is big. If someone slips on granite- or marble stairs, it can cause major damage. Then every homeowner will meditate on how the staircase can be defused. Specialized companies can make stone slip safely through laser treatment . Very often the chemical method is used as well. Here the natural stone is treated with various chemical compounds, like e.g. fluoric acid and that way blunted.Both methods are very expensive and can only be carried out by professionals.

Slip resistance with vacuum blast method

A much better possibility is the vacuum blast method of systeco. The blasting machine Tornado ACS slidestoppers can be installed in any size and shape. The surface is easy to bearbeitene abgeglebt only with commercial masking tape and off you go. Through the closed circuit of the vacuum beam system no Abbtrag and no blasting agent reaches the outside. The stairs must be unlocked for work and labor protection measures are not necessary.

The used blast media (korundum) can be reused in the circulation. The cost for equipment is therefore very low. All you need for the operation of the vacuum blast machine is a normal power supply of 230 V.

In the photos you can see a pattern area in which a 4 cm wide anti-slip resistance was applied. The blasting of this area takes max. 2 minutes.

Questions on slip resistance on granite

How to install slip resistance?

Injuries caused by falls on stairs without slip resistance are still an underestimated accident factor. Yet such accidents can be avoided relatively easily with slip-resistant stairs.
Before the stairs are installed, there are several mechanical methods for installing slip resistance. After the stairs have been installed, it becomes difficult, especially with marble or granite. With systeco's vacuum blasting technology, slip resistance can be applied to all mineral materials.  On our website we explain exactly how this works.

Can slip resistance be subsequently installed ?

This is very difficult with conventional methods, but with the vacuum blasting method from systeco it is a piece of cake. You can choose any form of slip resistance. You simply tape the surface to be blasted with standard painter's tape. Then, using negative pressure and granulate, the surface is treated until the desired depth and thus the degree of slip resistance is achieved. On our website we explain exactly how this is done.

Built-in slip resistance in granite

That´s how finished slip resistance in granite stairs looks like. And the good news is that they can also be applied later. With systeco's vacuum blasting process granite stairs become safe again.
