FAQ

Swiss GriP creates a durable non-slip layer on top of the surface and increases the surface-area. This makes sure you are always in direct contact with the surface, even when the surface is wet. Swiss GriP eliminates the "aquaplaning effect" and protects you from slips and falls. So unlike etching solutions and anti-slip treatments, Swiss GriP does not alter or damage the surface it is applied onto. Instead, it creates a durable and protective non-slip layer of the surface.
