DIY Entryway Revamp With TracSafe Anti-Slip Color Coat and TracSafe Anti-Slip Sealer By Daich Coatings



As a small business owner I am always looking for ways to improve my home and ensure my clients are safe and feel welcome when they come to the door. 


We have a concrete stairway leading to our entrance which can be slippery when wet creating a hazard for our customers coming and going. We have had a few minor slips and trips on our steps and we jumped at the opportunity to use Daich Coatings Anti-Slip Coating to add a layer of traction and protection to our stairs. 


Our entry way now has anti-slip steps for a safer journey for our clients to and from our home with their children. Not only is it much safer but it looks warm and inviting and well maintained. This product was very easy to use and looks like it was a professional job. 


Daich Coatings has now introduced TracSafe® Anti-Slip Color Coat. Available in five colors, the real stone organic coating covers almost any ugly, blotchy floor surface. You can DIY this renovation project in just a few days, start on Friday done by Sunday! 




            “This newest product is part of the TracSafe® system of anti-slip technology,” says Peter Daich, president of Daich Coatings. “Response has been very strong for launch of our anti-slip sealer. However, the sealer is clear. It’s intended to go over existing finished surfaces.

 

            “The new TracSafe Anti-Slip Color Coat is a real stone coating with color options. It’s very easy to apply and looks great with a light stone speckle that sparkles in the sunshine. Using both products together, we give people the opportunity to transform the look of spaces while adding anti-slip properties to surfaces.

 

            “The high coverage rate of the TracSafe products is a great value. Compared to common anti-slip paints, TracSafe’s proprietary anti-slip technology provides a strong, beautiful covering that transforms spaces.” 




            TracSafe products bond firmly to a variety of interior and exterior flooring materials. This includes concrete, masonry, stone and pavers, tile, vinyl, linoleum and pre-painted floors.

 

Easy DIY Application

            Daich recommends starting a project with two coatings of the colored TracSafe Anti-Slip Color Coat. Then, finish the project with two coats of TracSafe Anti-Slip Sealer. As easy to apply as paint, TracSafe Anti-Slip Color Coat comes in Graphite, Shell Grey, Cream, Clay Brick and Terracotta colors. 


            “By starting with the color coating, you add a beautiful, uniformly-colored finish to a surface,” says Daich. “Finishing it off with the clear sealer protects the coating from dirt, water and chemicals, and adds another level of slip-resistance to the floor.”

 

            Both TracSafe products have been tested and achieved ratings up to twice the industry-recommended safety standard. The product’s aggressive anti-slip performance with all-weather durability is ideal for both residential and commercial settings.

 

Where to Apply TracSafe Products

            In the home, TracSafe can be used on garage and basement floors, utility areas and workshops, pool decks, patios and terraces. In commercial settings, the TracSafe coating and sealer system can be applied to numerous surfaces, including entrances and steps, walkways and access ramps, pool decks, balconies, valet parking areas and commercial/industrial floors.        




 “While TracSafe anti-slip products are valuable in most settings and with all age groups, they are especially important for our aging population,” says Daich. “The TracSafe system of products can help people avoid life-altering falls. Whether used in group residential settings, hospitals or on community pool decks, anti-slip products benefit everyone.”

 

Why Anti-Slip Products?

            According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, slips and falls are the second highest cause of nonfatal occupational injury and illness incidents between 2014 – 2018.* The 2020 Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses reports that there were 211,640 trips, slips and falls in the private industry sector in 2020. 

 

            “Whether in the workplace or at home, potentially slippery surfaces should be taken seriously,” says Daich. “They can be greatly reduced by employing a full-system slip-resistant solution.”

 

            High-performance TracSafe products come as low VOC pre-mixed formulas. Their odorless, water-based technology features fast dry-times and easy water clean-up. Both the coating and sealer have excellent adhesion capabilities. The products are designed to last with outstanding resistance to sun, snow, water, salt, chemicals, snow shoveling, foot and vehicle traffic.

 

Easy Installation

            To install TracSafe Anti-Slip Color Coat, simply roll down two coats of the product a few hours apart using a 3/8” paint roller. Then, after curing for 24 hours, apply two coats of TracSafe Anti-Slip Sealer. Wait another 24 hours and the system is ready for foot traffic.


          TracSafe’s anti-slip technology lays down a uniform foot traction surface that exhibits effective slip resistance properties in both wet and dry conditions. This is effective with bare feet and various common pedestrian and work footwear. 




            “Once applied, the exceptional slip-resistant features of TracSafe helps people avoid dangerous slips and falls,” says Daich. “This has the potential to reduce prolonged pain for individuals, plus costly litigation and skyrocketing insurance costs.”

 

            TracSafe products, along with other Daich Coatings primers and decorative concrete products, are available online at The Home Depot®Lowe’sCanadian TireHome Hardware or https://www.daichcoatings.com.
