New Sure Grip® Bluestone Pavers Offer Unmatched Slip Resistance for Melbourne Pathways
Melbourne, Australia – [2/12/2023] – A revolutionary new bluestone paver product, Sure Grip®, has just arrived in Melbourne, Australia. Sure Grip® boasts the highest non-slip rating of any bluestone paver in the country, making it the perfect choice for high-traffic areas such as council pathways and swimming pool surrounds.
The development of Sure Grip® is a direct response to the increasing number of slip-and-fall accidents on council pathways paved with sawn bluestone. In particular, the Melbourne City Council has experienced a surge in such claims over the past 12 months.
A recent article in The Age reported that the Melbourne City Council has paid out over $1 million in compensation settlements for slip-and-fall accidents on its bluestone pathways in the past five years. The article also noted that the council is facing a number of lawsuits related to similar accidents.
Another article, published in The Herald Sun, highlighted the case of an elderly woman who suffered serious injuries after slipping on a wet bluestone paver in a Melbourne park. The woman’s family is suing the council for negligence.
These incidents underscore the need for safer paving materials in high-traffic areas. Sure Grip® pavers are manufactured using a unique process that creates a micro-textured surface that provides exceptional slip resistance, even when wet. This textured surface is achieved without compromising the natural beauty of bluestone, ensuring that Sure Grip® pavers seamlessly blend into any landscape design.
In addition to its exceptional slip resistance, Sure Grip® bluestone pavers offer a range of other benefits, including:
- Durability: Sure Grip® pavers are incredibly strong and resistant to chipping, cracking, and staining, making them ideal for high-traffic areas.
- Low maintenance: Sure Grip® pavers require minimal maintenance, simply requiring occasional cleaning to remove dirt and debris.
- Sustainability: Sure Grip® pavers are made from natural bluestone, a sustainable material that is quarried responsibly.
With its unmatched slip resistance, durability, low maintenance, and sustainability, Sure Grip® is the ideal choice for council pathways, swimming pools, and any other high-traffic area where safety is a priority.
