restaurant treating entrance floor with Sure Step

Tread Safe LLC uses the revolutionary product Sure Step to prevent injuries and liabilities in workplaces and at home. Sure Step is a long lasting chemical treatment which creates an invisible, sophisticated tread design into the surface of hard mineral floors and porcelain/enamel bathtubs. The coefficient of friction is raised from 200 to 400 percent when subjected to water while maintaining the appearance of the floor or bathtub. There is no shut-down time required, use the floor or tub immediately following the treatment.

  • Indoors-outdoors-all kinds of weather
  • Will not chip, peel or discolor
  • Not a film or coating
  • Inexpensive and highly effective
  • Service life, floors: minimum one year
  • Service life, bathtubs: up to five years

Developed and Proven For

  • Concrete
  • Spanish Tile
  • Glazed Brick
  • Terrazzo
  • Quarry Tile
  • Ceramic Tile
  • Marble
  • Porcelain/Enamel

And many other hard mineral surfaces.

Independent Laboratory Tests

Prove Superior Performance of Sure Step

A walkway surface treated with Sure Step is actually safer
in a wet condition than a dry untreated surface.

*Evaluated in accordance with ASTM procedures C-1028-D-1894 National Testing Standards, Inc. Anaheim, California

Coefficient of Friction Accepted Industry Standards

As Adopted by Underwriters Laboratory (UL)
And the American Society of Testing and Minerals (A.S.T.M.)

"A static anti-slip coefficient of friction of .50 or above is
considered a safe walkway surface with a dry condition.
A reading below .50 is considered an unsafe walkway surface."

*.60 or above -Very Safe
.50 to .59 -Relatively Safe
.40 to .49 -Dangerous
.35 to .39 -Very Dangerous
.00 to .34 -Unusually Dangerous

The coefficient of friction is dramatically reduced when an untreated flat hard mineral walkway surface is subjected to a wetting agent.
