Non-Slip Pavers

Prioritise safety, compromise nothing

Prioritise safety, compromise nothing

As straight forward as this may sound, areas in your home that are susceptible to water are – by nature of the fact – slippery. Whether it’s your kitchen, bathroom, poolside, or pathway: you want to ensure that the pavers installed in these locations have a high non-slip rating.

At Armstone, we test all our natural stone pavers for safety using the “Wet Pendulum Test”. This test determines the P-rating of the stone and how slippery it is when wet. When choosing non-slip pavers for your indoors or outdoors – especially for driveways, pool surrounds and pathways – it’s imperative to choose natural stone pavers that have a slip rating of P4-P5. If the stone’s surface has a P3 rating, it can be tough to keep your balance and a small slip can result in devastating injuries. Yes, adults included. You can read more about our non-slip testing here.

So, let’s look at some of the non-slip natural stone paver options we have available for your outdoor needs at Armstone.

Natural stone pavers with non-slip finishes

While natural stone pavers are beautiful, majestic, durable and stand the test of time wherever they are installed, some score a higher non-slip P-rating than others. Additionally, their slip-resistance depends on their finish. For example, natural stone pavers with sandblasted, sawn, or flamed finishes, all reduce the slipperiness of the stone’s surface. You can learn more about this by reading our extensive guide or calling us on 1300 560 560 to chat to our friendly team of Sydney natural stone experts.

Natural stone pavers that have a higher non-slip rating include porphyry, granite, bluestone, marble, and limestone. Travertine and sandstone are two natural stone pavers we do not recommend installing in wet areas. These natural stones are more porous than the others, which makes them more slippery, and more susceptible to erosion over time.

Granite non-slip pavers

Granite – an igneous rock made from hot lava that melts over time – is known for its durability and grip. This makes granite natural stone pavers an ideal choice for installation in areas with high exposure to moisture. Our Raven and Gris Granite have non-slip ratings of P5 – which is the highest rating available.

Porcelain pavers for non-slip areas

Porcelain pavers – made from structural clay – are extremely versatile, durable, heat and slip-resistant. This makes them ideal for installation in all the areas of your home and garden where non-slip pavers are essential. At Armstone, we have porcelain pavers available in a variety of cuts and sizes in travertine, marble, limestone, travertine, quartz, sandstone, and granite.

So, if you love the travertine or sandstone look for your pool surrounds, kitchen or bathroom and need to choose non-slip pavers, then porcelain travertine and porcelain sandstone are excellent alternatives. Whether your home exudes a modern or more traditional aesthetic, porcelain pavers (unlike natural stone pavers), are also extremely low-maintenance and do not require regular sealing, are easier to clean and affordable. They are a perfect non-slip paver for those with a busy lifestyle. Looking for a soft-off white caramel latte touch? Check out our Bianco travertine porcelain collection. Or add a milky-way look of blue-grey, cream and caramel tones to your pool surrounds, patio or paths with our Plato Silver Travertine tiles. Looking for a porcelain paver that will mask any stains, the charcoal Daintree Black Quartz adds a modern and chic look to your floors and outdoors.

After some initial inspiration at the Armstone showroom, Arman and Lachlan were very helpful in assisting with the design for cladding our garden bed wall with the sandstone castle cladding product, finished with a light grey grout. It turned out amazing. Thanks for your help, prompt supply and after sales support.
Arman was extremely helpful with enquiries and advice. Very happy with the order of limestone pool coping and wall cladding.
