Glad I bought this. We have wood laminate flooring and it’s on our stairs as well. I once almost ate sh*t going down the stairs. Laminate is very slippery. So I bought this because I have small children who like to run. And this has helped a lot. I haven’t slipped once since I got this. We are though more careful coming down the stairs. So I can’t say it works magic but it does help minimize slipping. And you can hardly tell it’s there. Love that because I didn’t want to kill the look of my brand new flooring.
I ordered these for my daughter’s bathtub and they work great! She loves them because they are fun to look at in the tub and I love that she has a safe non-slip bottom in the tub without a dirty mat that constantly has to cleaned. Following the directions, these went on really easy and have been in the tub for over a month now. They have withstood multiple baths and weekly cleanings without issue.
We have a 16 y/o Australian Cattle Dog who had fallen in our kitchen and dislocated her hip. She had almost recovered from her fall when she slipped again in the bathroom on some puddled water. We had every rug I could find to prevent another fall that would surely have taken her life. I found Slip Doctors floor grip and decided to give it a try. It was easy to apply and actually looks pretty nice too. Daisy is now walking securely on our vinyl floors. One tip I have is when you remove the tape from around the edges, make certain the product has completely cured before removing. We had to reapply where it had lifted with the tape. We used a razor blade to keep that from happening with the rest of the floors when removing the tape.
This stuff WORKS!!! Cleaned, rinsed, and dried the tub THOROUGHLY, applied one bottle as directed. (Note; the scrubbing pad in the package is only used to evenly spread liquid during the application time, no need to apply pressure). After completing the process, my wife ran her hand across the surface and stated that I wasted my time and money, because the tub didn’t look or feel any different than before the application (she was expecting a rough, sandpaper feel). Later, we each showered and discovered that in fact it works BETTER than advertised. We are completely satisfied.
Applied on my very smooth surface front step. worked great! has even stood up to ice, snow and -17 degree temps with no problem.
SLIPPERY SEALED TRAVERTINE POOL DECK PAVERS SAVED!
THE ISSUE - I had a customer that had travertine pavers laid around the pool. There were no issues with slipping until we sealed the pavers. The look of the travertine was amazing when it was sealed, but now we had an issue where people, kids, dogs, etc were falling more frequently. We had a choice; 1. Strip the sealer (costly) and let the travertine go back to its natural luster look or 2. Add Deck Grip and see what happens. We went with option 2 because we could always revert back to option 1 if Deck Grip didn't work. We applied Deck Grip around the pool as directed, with a roller, and making sure that the clear grains were always agitated or stirred before the next dip of the roller. Because we are in Florida I believe the Deck Grip was dry in about 20 minutes, but we allowed it to dry as directed.
THE OUTCOME - Deck Grip not only added a sandpaper-like, clear topcoat, but it also made the, already sealed travertine, a little more vibrant. We went a couple of days without a slip, but then.....It happened again. We weren't giving up. We applied another coat, READ DIRECTIONS FOR SECOND APPLICATION, well after the recommended time, and the slipping incidents slowly were reduced to zero. I believe we applied four coats total and the Deck Grip didn't take away from the wet sealed look from the pavers as I expected it to.
You may find cheaper alternatives out there, as I was looking myself, but after using Deck Grip, on an extremely hard and delicate natural stone, travertine, spend the extra $$$ and purchase this product. It performs as text-sm leading-snugribed. Its application is as simple as any other product you will find, and customer support/technical support is super helpful. Especially when you are on a job and need answers within minutes, they were available within minutes of me calling and not days like other large companies. Sealing is time-consuming as it is and decisions must be made almost instantaneously, especially in Florida where drying time is unforgiving. So having their support team available within minutes is more added value in their products. I'm not sure I can put this in the review, but if anyone has questions regarding my experience with the product or have a similar issue, but want to talk to someone that has used the product, please feel free to email me before you purchase. I'm going to give you my unbiased opinion, but 100% of the time I am going to say, just bite the bullet and purchase Deck Grip. My email is email@example.com. Please email me if you are on the fence about this product. And to Slip Doctors, kudos on a well-made product. You have a customer for life because you saved me from having to strip everything off of 1100 s.f. of beautiful natural stone.
Amazing! I am so impressed.
I have beautiful 100+ year-old wood stairs, and too many people have slipped on them. I actually broke my shoulder blade a few years back when I slipped on these stairs. I hesitated to add an anti-slip coating or stick-on treads because I was afraid it would change the look of the beautiful finish. I also walk around in bare feet a lot and didn't want the stairs to feel uncomfortable underfoot. But this stuff is great; you can't even tell it is there, unless you have bare feet, and even then it's not unpleasant or scratchy to walk on. You can hardly feel it; it's just a little grippier underfoot. If I had known this product existed, I would have used it long ago.
I applied three coats with about an hour's drying time between coats and it was dry within a couple of hours of that. I divided the stairs into sections so I could reach and recoat without marring it while wet. Now we wait for guests and the true test will come -- will anyone slip? I don't think so. Very happy with this stuff.
