Through the innovative SAFESTONE procedure 2 to 5 million micropores are produced on the surfaces to treat (depending on the consistency of the material) distributed regularly per square meter which allow the flooring to become really non-slip.
In fact treated floors can achieve:
a degree of slipperiness of R9 or R10 (DIN 51130:2004 B.G.R. 181 for Germany, D.M. 236/89 Rif. B.C.R. for Italy and ASTM C 1028 for the USA). Usually R10 is used in service areas (toilets, bathrooms, kitchens, canteens, etc.) or where there is a slight presence of moisture or water, and R9 for all other cases;
Class A, B, C (DIN 51097:1992 for Germany) used in areas adjacent to swimming pools, saunas and areas where you can walk around with bare feet.
All this is created without producing almost any loss of gloss on the clear materials and slightly lightening the dark materials. These micropores are practically invisible to the human eye, and for this reason they keep the aesthetic value of the materials unchanged.
The main advantages of the SAFESTONE laser treatment compared to other types of processing (acids) are:
Supply of materials that are already non-slip directly from the producer without any further steps.
High quality standard and durable.
Achievement of non-slip levels R9-R10 B.G.R. 181, B.G.R. and ASTM C 1028 also on polished surfaces, without significant loss of gloss.
Particularly effective on wet surfaces.
No risk of chemical corrosion.
Applicable in combination with the impregnating procedure StoneProtect.
