How to make a shower non-slip

Bathrooms are a slippery place, and falling over can happen to anyone. Slippery showers can cause serious injuries if you don’t take the correct precautions. Ensuring that your you and your family are safe when using the shower should be a priority. Luckily, improving your shower safety can be made simple.

 

Tip 1: Install handrails

It is much easier to stand balanced on the wet surface as long as you have handrails installed. Getting in and out of the shower can be dangerous, especially if your shower is in the bath, as the surface can become extremely slippery due to its material. If you or someone you know needs help, please watch installation this video, or get a quote from your local plumber.

 

Tip 2: Use a non-slip mat

Using a non-slip mat is great for getting a good grip on the floor of your shower. Being incredibly easy to install, anyone can do it. Practical Surfaceware offers a variety of non-slip mat solutions for your safety. You can see our range by clicking here.

 

Tip 3: Use a powerful soap cleaner

Leftover suds and hard-water stains can cause slippery surfaces to appear. To counter this you should regularly spray your shower with a strong cleaner as this will make your shower noticeably less slippery. We would recommend using this cleaner.

 

Tip 4: Install a walk-in shower

Walk-in showers lower the risk of injury substantially as there is no step needed to get in or out of the shower. These can come with shower chairs, allowing you to relax in the shower without needing to hold on to anything. If you’re interested in installing a walk-in shower, you can learn more here.
