RMHC is an independent, non-profit organisation, that helps seriously ill children and their families when they need it most.
They were founded in memory of McDonald's creator, Ray Kroc, who believed in charitable works as a way of putting something back into the community.
McDonald's Australia pays all administration and management costs of RMHC and are a generous donor, the rest of the essential funds required is raised by the charity.
The external tiled surfaces were slippery and about 12 months ago a clear DIY anti slip epoxy was applied onto the surface.
The surface started blistering and discolouring and its slip resistive quality has deteriorated quite dramatically.
Management contacted QLD Antislip Solutions – a local authorised dealer and accredited applicator - to provide them with a sustainable an aesthetically pleasing slip resistance standard compliant surface.
A safety representative from the company attended the site and after inspection, proposed a sustainable environmentally friendly solution for the the RMHC house.
The Supa Safe product speckle coated version was proposed by QLD Antislip Solutions as well as for the stair nosing due to its proven and very high sustainable slip resistance.
The Supa Safe product had had extensive testing using the accelerated wear testing method. The test results have shown the product has a very high and sustainable slip resistive quality, and very likely to provide a long term solution.
The QLD Antislip Solution team carried out the work, which included removal of the existing epoxy coating, surface preparation, anti slip coating and speckle coating, stair nosing and RMHC logo.
The logo stencil was supplied by Rivercity Displays, an award winning display and signage company.
Management are very satisfied with the entire project and the new and very bright looking and safe surface have provided positive feedback.
They communicated their total satisfaction with the quality of the workmanship and the professionalism and dedication of the application team during the entire project.
As per Global Safe Technologies Australia’s Community Charity policy, the company will donate 2.5 percent of the approved product related floor safety work value to RMHC.
Global Safe appreciates the value charitable organisations provide to the local community and strongly supports it.
