Skidproof Floor / floor

Skidproof Floor
Skidproof Floor

Persons select tiles with beautiful patterns to pave their floor. These tiles are always slippy, especially when mopped, they are wet, persons are likely to slip and fall down.
This design utilizes the patterns to prevent persons from slipping. A highly water absorbing material is used to paint the patterns on the surface of tiles. While get wet, the patterns absorb the water, and swell out of the surface as strip lines.When the water vaporise, the patterns get back to the normal. Patterns on tiles are more than decorative function!
