Safe Tread Anti Slip Coating
Anti Slip Coating, Non Skid Coating, Non Slip Coating, this description is generic and we call the concept by many names, but to increase traction, to prevent slips or falls and generally create a safe footing, that’s exactly what our products do best!
Safe Tread can be used to create an anti skid floor treatment, to create non skid stair treads, high grip loading ramps, roof top walkways for flat roofs and it’s so easy to apply, just roll it on with a texture roller and a beautiful texture is created! It’s a maximum grip coating that’s really environmentally friendly and user friendly. It creates an incredibly effective anti-slip, non-skid surface on clean, dry, prepared substrates. Safe Tread is flexible so its chip, scuff and impact resistant which means a long service life. It cures by evaporation and air dries quickly while it’s also NON FLAMMABLE for safe application. While we provide Safe Tread in several standard colors, we can match almost any color so you can enjoy a unique color scheme. CONTAINS NO SILICA, so its user friendly! And, it’s a ZERO VOC product.
Reasons Why Many Use Safe Tread Anti Slip Coatings:
Safe Tread is unique anti slip coating because it contains no silica which can cause respiratory problems. The heavy grit that provides the superior traction and non-slip properties will not settle out in the container nor will it clump during application. It’s very easy to apply with one of our unique texture rollers, it’s water based so cleanup is easy and it does not require exotic safety equipment for a safe application. Considering the ease of use, the easy water cleanup and that no expensive safety equipment or solvents or reducers are required, Safe Tread is much less expensive than most all other safety coating options as it covers about 60 square feet per gallon.
Where To Use Safe Tread Anti Slip Coatings:
Safe Tread has proven to be tough enough for a variety of applications. Safe Tread Anti-Slip Coatings will stand up to extreme service environments and deliver uncompromised performance.
- Military Installations
- Subway Cars
- Public School Ramps
- Forklift Ramps
- Industrial Plants
Material costs are generally between $0.75 to $1.50 per square foot depending on the applied rate and the chosen color.

COATING APPLICATION & MAINTENANCE:
Click here for some important information: Soft Tread & Safe Tread Application Guide
Safe Tread can be applied at surface temperatures between 50°F and 110°F. Application is not recommended when surface temperature is below 50°F or soon to fall below that temperature. Prepare surfaces by pressure washing and removal of all dirt, grease, loose paint, rust, efflorescence or other contaminants. Etch new concrete after 30 day curing, sand fiberglass, prime bare metal or wood. All surfaces must be clean, dry and “paint ready” before application. All new treated wood must be seasoned, or weathered, for a minimum of 6 months before applying Safe Tread Anti-Slip Coating. Composite lumber must be rigorously pressure washed prior to application and will require a special high adhesion primer. Call us for more info about composite lumber applications.
Mask off area to be coated to prevent overspray or to maintain clean edge detail. Check weather conditions to be certain rain or dew is not imminent before product has the opportunity to dry fully after application. Apply product by 3/8″ FOAM PRO open foam texture roller (available through Acry-Tech), hopper gun, or disposable FOAM brush. Apply light first coat, allow coating to tack, and then follow with heavier full coat. Clean up spills and tools with water. Thin if necessary with clean water only.
To clean the surface and maintain the beauty of Safe Tread, use general purpose cleaners such as: Tri Sodium Phosphate (TSP), Laundry Detergent (Tide Powder is best!), Citrus Orange Cleaners, diluted commercial degreasers, Formula 409, Simple Green or similar type products. Dilute bleach of caustic cleaning solution can also be used sparingly. For best results apply cleaner at recommended dilution rate and scrub lightly with a stiff bristle deck brush. Rinse thoroughly when cleaning is complete. Automatic scrubbers can also be used for large areas. With automatic scrubbing equipment, use light pad pressure only!
