Making marble floors less slippery
coachamen

I am installing marble floors in my entry hall and bathroom. I am concerned that people may slip. Is there a coating that will make slipping less likely and still not change the look of the marble. Thanks, Peter

Yes there is. Click here.

Natural stones over wood substrates requires a deflection no less than L720 AND two layers of plywood* installed offset in a specific manner. The plywood needs to be CC grade or better with an exterior glue rating. No sheathing.

If setting over slab on grade, a anti fracture membrane is recommended.

White thinset is recommended as not to change the color of the marble.

Green marbles often require epoxy setting materials.
