Dekton Grip+: innovation, safety and a smooth finish for the most demanding flooring
The R+D department here at Cosentino once again demonstrates its leadership in terms of innovation thanks to the introduction of Grip+.
Grip+ is an advanced, innovative treatment that guarantees slip-resistance on Dekton ultra-compact surfaces, providing maximum safety to residential, hospitality and commercial projects. In addition, Dekton Grip+ retains a smoothness that’s similar to the material’s standard finishing, thus providing a very pleasant feel when walking across it barefoot, a true game-changer for designers and architects alike!
Blending together the slip-resistant innovations and solutions, Grip+ allows Dekton to position itself as the best product for slip-resistant applications on the most demanding flooring, whether located inside or outdoors. This can include dressing rooms or community access points, ramps, pavements, terraces, surfaces in and around pools, showers, or spas.
Grip+ represents a complete revolution by modifying Dekton’s surface structure in a controlled way.
Grip+ is joined to the material before the particle sintering process, making it part of the surface’s molecular structure. The lightly textured surface obtained is homogeneous, uniform and pleasant to the touch yet remains easy to maintain and long-lasting.
All of this is possible while still meeting the most restrictive international regulations; Dekton Grip+ classifies as R11 under regulation DIN 51130, and also meets the Class 3 regulation.
Grip+ slip-resistant technology provides Dekton surfaces with a higher safety index and helps avoid potential accidents, a characteristic which is added to the long list of excellent properties that define our revolutionary Dekton surface. Thanks to its nature and innovative manufacturing process, Dekton offers advanced resistance to scratches, stains, cold, heat, and UV rays. It also absorbs very little water, requiring no sealing.
“At Cosentino, our R+D team is committed to creating materials that offer the very best in beauty, durability and safety,” says Massimo Ballucchi, Director of Marketing for Cosentino North America. “Combining maximum safety with industry-leading features, Dekton Grip+ does just that.”
Dekton Grip+ will be applied to a total of 4 material colours (above, left to right: Soke, Orix, Vera and Keon) and will be gradually incorporated into other tones in the product range.
