Why slip-resistant flooring is so important in public transport

Flooring for buses and trains needs to be durable and easy to clean. It should also be slip-resistant.

Many slip accidents happen on wet floors, usually on relatively smooth surfaces like those often seen inside buses and trains. Wet weather and spills can make transport flooring treacherous for staff and passengers – especially vulnerable groups like the elderly, who could experience serious repercussions from a fall.

The advantages of Altro safety flooring over alternatives

Different flooring types provide different levels of slip resistance. And although smooth and rubber flooring are popular choices for transport, they're not slip-resistant when wet.

Altro safety flooring provides excellent slip resistance when wet and achieves a minimum Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of ≥36 for shod areas.
