Metal is one of the more common building materials found an a variety of locations. Bathrooms, kitchens and ramps are the most popular residential areas where metal surfaces are used. It is a popular option for those seeking a unique look as metal floors are one of the more unconventional flooring options. It is a resilient surface that can be pressed or textured to create unique designs. Metal is a very hard slick surface that tends to be very slippery. The same can be said for a metal deck railing or ladder. The same smooth reflective surface that is so aesthetically pleasing and functional is very slippery when wet. If there is a probability that these metal surfaces will come in contact with water or if they are used for safety (ladders hand rails etc) One can improve traction on metal surfaces with a non-slip options. Our Tuff-Grip would be a better roll-on option.
