Are Polished Concrete Floors Slippery?

Are Polished Concrete Floors Slippery?Are polished concrete floors slippery? It’s one of the most common questions we get because polished concrete looks wet. While polished concrete floors may look like they’re slippery because of their exquisite shine and beauty, they’re really no more slippery than some of the more popular stores you already shop at.

Don’t get me wrong, when a polished concrete floor is soaked with water, there’s always a chance you’re going to slip. That’s probably true with just about any type of floor.

Polished Concrete Floors – Uhaul

Polished Concrete Floors - U-HaulOur most recent polished concrete floors project comes from a U-Haul warehouse in Fort Smith, AR. It’s a 20,000 square foot facility that used to be the site of an old bowling alley. I’ve actually bowled there a couple of times when I was a child.

The polished concrete floors at the U-Haul warehouse turned out much better than anyone expected. In fact, there was talk about completely covering the floor at one point, but we knew we cold produce beautifully polished concrete floors.

Polished Concrete Project – Price Cutter

Price Cutter - Springfield Missouri - Polished Concrete ProjectHere is another polished concrete project from Glossy Floors. This polished concrete project will be a Price Cutter in Springfield, Missouri that was polished and finished to an 800 grit shine. While the concrete is absolutely beautiful, it was a long hard road to get there.

We had about a 25 day delay while the store was being painted. No, it didn’t take 25 days to paint the ceiling, but it did take the designers about 3 weeks to match the ceiling with an appropriate color that would compliment the stained polished concrete floors.

This specific Price Cutter was previously a Dillon’s grocery store. The floor was completely covered in tile which […]
