Twenty years ago, Vancouver Airport Authority founded Vantage to take the management principles and best practices honed at YVR to airports around the world.

Vantage continues to work with the award-winning Vancouver international airport to adapt and implement best airport practices that consider local customs and culture, resulting in airports that are financially stronger, more sustainable and better economic generators for the communities and businesses they serve.

Management has identified one of the main concrete walking paths as a potential risk of slipping and also in need of rejuvenating the existing surface.  

They contacted Anti-Slip Anywhere (North America), for expert advice and a solution proposal to prevent risk of slip and falls and also to provide an upgraded, sustainable re-surfacing option.

Anti-Slip Anywhere (North America) has proposed using an environmentally friendly highly slip resistive and attractive Anti-Slip coating, the Floor Tuff Ultimate to rejuvenate the  surfaces after existing floor was adequatly prepared.

The Floor Tuff Ultimate is an outstanding product that will provide a sustainable Very high coefficient of friction / Pendulum Class V slip resistance, it is a non dangerous goods product and cures quickly.      
To ensure that the new Anti-Slip surface will provide a long term and problem free solution, the existing surfaces had to be grinded as well as all surrounding areas had to be masked properly. The Anti-Slip Anywhere (North America) team has taken on the challenge and have thoroughly prepared the surface before the application of the new solution.
The main constraint of the project was a very limited time window working in a very busy area and keeeping it operational. Carry out the work during the Canadian winter months made the situation even more challenging due to the -1 to -18 Celsius temperatures.

The work also had to be completed in December, before the very busy Christmas period and the work had to be carried out in two half sections.                       
Anti-Slip Anywhere (North America) has an experienced team of installers who have completed the entire project just in time for the Christmas holidays, to the complete satisfaction of management.     
Several people have positively commented not only on the workmanship of the team but the professionalism, setup and attention to detail and final clean-up. There was also a satisfaction expressed both with the greatly improved slip resistance of the rejuvenated surfaces as well as the improvement in aesthetical appearance.
