What anti slip flooring solutions do we install
Monarch installs anti slip flooring solutions which are tough, durable and provide a smart and attractive finish suited to many different environments. Our non-slip flooring range helps to increase the health and safety of an environment by reducing the risks or slips and trips which may have occurred on a smoother surface.
Our specialist resin product Monargrip is an epoxy resin floor system with adjustable grip capabilities. This allows for different levels of grip within a floor depending on what is needed for that particular environment. This added grip within the layers of the system creates a surface which has more resistance to slips and trips in both wet and dry conditions, ideal for the automotive sector, industrial factories and commercial food and drink settings.
Simplified, the resin system which is installed is a coloured resin base, a specialist aggregate centre and a clear resin coating or sealer on the top. Of course this is a simplified explanation and does not take into account the number of resin coats which may be required or the floor preparation needed as that it dependant on each project. But this does show that the system is adjustable in many different aspects including the colour of the base, type of aggregate and level of grip.
Why is non slip flooring used
In an industrial and commercial environment, having a heavy duty floor which is safe for all types of traffic is essential. A resin floor which has non-slip properties means that you can have a durable floor which can withstand forklift traffic, pedestrian use and has that added capability of slip resistance.
The textured finish of an anti slip resin surface is more slip resistant than a general concrete floor. The resin coating can be installed on top of an existing concrete floor or resin surface which means that you would not need to necessarily replace the entire floor. This makes it a cost-effective way of increasing a floors grip without having to replace an entire floor (dependant on the current condition of that concrete floor etc).
Although our anti slip flooring range improves the grip of a resin floor, it does not guarantee the floor to be ‘slip proof’ as no one can guarantee this. Anti slip resin flooring simply creates more grip on a floors surface to boost its slip resistance properties.
Anti slip flooring systems are ideal for walkways, ramps, gangways and factory floors. Non slip products are widely installed in the automotive sector due to its durability against vehicle traffic as well as its slip resistant structure. It is also well suited in many other environments where wet and dry materials may create slippery surfaces.
Non slip coatings increase the effectiveness of grip which is why they create a safer surface for customers, vehicles and worker to move around on. Monarch has an advanced range of resin flooring products which we install UK wide with slip-resistant qualities to help conform to health and safety legislation standards.
Our main anti-slip resin system
One of the main epoxy resin products we install is Monargrip. This is a resin system as described before with a coloured resin base, specialist aggregate centre and a clear resin coating to seal. We have been installing Monargrip for the last ten years and are so confident with the system that we have trademarked it as our own. Monargrip is found mainly in the automotive sector and in industrial settings due to its slip-resistant properties. As well as these areas, it can also be found in leisure facilities and sports centres and is suited in most areas which are in need of added slip resistance.

To conclude, in an industrial or commercial environment such as a warehouse or production factory, a flooring system with added grip resistance is a key factor to health and safety requirements. By using a resin system with added aggregate you can create a floor with better slip resistance. Moreover, you can increase the aggregate in a resin system to a number of different levels depending on the grip needed for the setting.
For the reason that it is an impossible guarantee, no resin system can promise that slip and trips in the workplace will not happen. However, anti-slip systems will increase the slip resistance of a flooring system so that the risk of those hazards are lowered.
