Slippery outdoor areas are an accident waiting to happen. Even the most slip-resistant outdoor surfaces can be vulnerable to moss growth and become more slippery when wet. To avoid slip-and-fall injuries, you need an outdoor non-slip coating solution that will add traction to your surfaces. SlipDoctors explores how you can make your outdoor spaces summer-ready:
Fix slippery pool decks
Having a swimming pool is a great luxury. However, pools come with a lot of responsibility, including maintenance and safety. Safety is most important as thousands of accidents happen around pools every year.
Pool decks are specifically hazardous because they become very slippery when wet. These decks can come in many types, including concrete, tile, travertine, river gravel and more. Several techniques and products can be used to make swimming pool areas less slippery. At SlipDoctors, we recommend Deck Grip:

Fix slippery patios
Hot and humid weather can cause patios to become damp. This can lead to slippery surfaces. The following solutions can help you to make your wood, stone or patio tiles non-slip safe:

During the summer months, your outdoor areas are going to get wet, whether from your pool, the sprinkler or your newly installed patio mist kit.
