Hotel Bathtubs can be made to be non slip...
Several large hotel chains have discovered how to get rid of the awful bathtub mats. Non slip hotel bathtubs are possible with a quick and easy safety bathtubs solution for porcelain bathtubs. (If you have fiberglass or acrylic bathtubs please see below)
The gallon of bathtub non slip treatment costs $89.00. It will treat 30 to 40 porcelain bathtubs. Less than $3.00 per bathtub.
They have discovered that the coefficient of friction can be increased on the surface of the hotel bathtub. This makes the bathtub less slippery and yet it is easy to clean the surface. No more need for bathtub stickers or bathtub mats!
One gallon of the Slip Resistant Solutions, safety bathtub treatment will do 30 to 40 porcelain bathtubs. That is less than $3.00 per hotel bathtub.

Slips, trips and falls in bathtubs and showers are a common cause of injury among children. An average of one hundred and twenty children are injured in the bathtub each day.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the highest occurrence of injury was in children under the age of two and that children four and under accounted for more than half of all bathtub slip and fall injuries studied.
It is not surprising that slip and falls are the most frequent premise liability cases or accident types for both guests and employees of hotels. In fact, according to a recent study, slip and falls at hotels accounted for 42% of all claims. Serious injuries can take place as a result of hotels that have failed to maintain their facilities. Bathtub and bathroom safety is very important. These claims are fought hard by insurance companies representing the hotel industry.
These claims can be reduced with adequate lighting and a surface that is slip resistant. Bathtubs should be continuously cleaned and degreased and treated with a safety bathtubs treatment.
One step that hotels are taking is to use Slip Resistant Solutions non slip treatment for porcelain bathtubs or fiberglass bathtubs. These two products can be purchased in a small individual kit for one bathtub or also in a gallon container that will do up to 40 bathtubs. This is a very affordable option when it comes to safety.
This product is easy to apply. It takes only 5 minutes to make the surface slip resistant. It does not change the appearance of the bathtub and cleaning is still the same.
