One of the most accurate outdoor flooring are non-slip ceramics tiles. The fact is that many of the ceramic tiles modify their surface finishing, without changing their appearence, providing them the necessary slip resistance properties.
By non-slip flooring we mean a surface coated with special material that increase the adherence and friction force of the tile itself. The idea is to prevent slips, falls and accidents caused by wet or slippery floors.
Outdoor ceramic floors must meet a number of technical safety requirements, which we can find in the Technical Building Code (CTE). This regulation includes the concept of “slipperiness” or slip resistance, which determinates the type of floor to be used depending on the area of application, weather conditions, use, etc. For example, if it is an area that is always wet, if it has a slope, if it is very busy, if it is walked on barefoot…
Class 2: floorings with this qualification are often used for shower floors, swimming pools, beach areas, etc.
Class 3: within regulation, these one are those who present the best resistance to slipping and they are the most accurate to prevent falls, slips and outdoor accidents . This is the classification that professionals recommend if you want to pave the floor of any outdoor area with non-slip ceramics.
