SWISS GriP - Our History
Our first non-slip solution for the bathroom was born in 1990. In this year, our chemist was on a mission to develop a non-slip solution for the Holiday Inn Hotel Group in France, that would see shower- and bath mats as a thing of the past. Holiday Inn set six important criteria:
Certified - comply with the French and German slip resistance standards (DIN 51097, Class C)
Hygienic - anti-bacterial and easy to clean
Invisible - fully transparent solution
Easy to apply - on bathtubs, shower bases and tiles
Safe to use - non-hazardous, safe to use solution
Removable - possible to remove without damaging the underneath surface
After rigorous testing, Holiday Inn approves GriP AntiSlip as their preferred non-slip solution. SWISS GriP quickly grows into an internationally operating company. Soon after, bathtub and shower base manufacturers start applying GriP AntiSlip in their factories to offer their customers slip-free products. Since 2008 our R&D and production facilities are located in Switzerland and the SWISS GriP Branding is adopted.
With our top quality coatings, we assure non-slip safety in more than 50 countries. Our coatings have been certified in Australia, Switzerland, Germany, UK, Brasil and the USA.
