The Bvlgari Resort in Dubai is one of the world’s most luxurious wellness resorts. It is situated on a seahorse-shaped island in Jumeira Bay and includes a Yacht and Beach Club.
The Italian luxury brand prides itself to offer the highest standard of bespoke services to its guests. To assure guest safety, the Bvlgari Resort wanted to make sure all pool areas were slip-free. After testing several options, SWISS GriP NonSlip was chosen as the best solution to provide optimal non-slip safety for staff and guests alike.
SWISS GriP NonSlip was installed on more than 200sqm of terrazzo tiles. A great benefit of SWISS GriP is that it does not damage the surface it is applied to. This is in contrast to “non-slip treatments”, which create tiny cracks in the surface, causing irreparable damage. Especially on marble and other natural stone surfaces, this is undesirable.
Moreover, SWISS GriP is a fully transparent and UV-resistant solution. For Bvlgari, it was of utmost important that the aesthetics of the natural stone tiles was unaffected. Another great benefit of SWISS GriP is that it has been tested and approved by independent institutes. This assures non-slip safety as the coating complies to international standards for slip resistance. These include AS4586 (Australian Standard for Slip Resistance), BS7976 (UK), and DIN 51097 and DIN 51130 (Europe).
