Why should you pick anti-slip tiles for your bathrooms?

February 02, 2023

Did you know that slip and fall accidents are one of the most common causes of injuries amongst people of all ages? Areas that experience high water exposure often pose a serious risk of slipping.  

Be it a bathroom, a kitchen, or even a balcony; water on the floor exposes you to the risk of injuring yourself. While other types of flooring such as marble and concrete tend to get more slippery when exposed to water and may not be hygienic options, Slip Shield tiles from the house of Somany Ceramics minimize this risk.  

Somany Ceramics as a tile manufacturer has always been on the forefront of innovation and development and one such product of this research is the Slip Shield series. The Slip Shield tiles get a special coating that keeps the co-efficient of friction (ratio of the frictional force resisting the motion of two surfaces in contact to the normal force) high. This helps you take a confident step even in soapy/slippery conditions without the fear of slipping.  

While numerous ceramic tiles manufacturers have come up with their own iterations of anti-skid tiles, what distinguishes Slip Shield from others is the fact that apart from being utilitarian, these tiles are also resistant to blemishes, allowing them to lend a sense of timelessness to any area.
