Vancouver Fire & Rescue services has its long history dating back to 1886 when the fire department was established.

Over the years the single Fire Hall No 1 has grown into three battalions and 22 halls which offers the state of the art Fire and Rescue services for the citizens of greater Vancouver.

Regular safety reviews have identified the requirement of renewal of anti slip stair nosing within the various fire halls.

Fire Hall No 1contacted Tile Safe Products, which company is building an excellent reputation throughout North America for providing a "one stop surface safety shop" for a wide range of sustainable, environmentally-friendly solutions to address the identified floor and other surface safety issues.

Tile Safe had proposed the Safe Grip Anti-Slip stair nosing be installed across the Fire Hall.

The product was suggested for the nominated areas due to its proven outstanding and sustainable slip resistive quality and suitability to the environment. The Safe Grip product requires low maintenance and provides highly slip resistive surface combined with a long useful life. The proposed solution was evaluated and accepted by management.

Tile Safe Products has just completed Hall No. 1 upon completion the city has asked Tile Safe Products to continue the application for halls No. 2 and 3.

The company was able to complete the work with virtually no impact to the emergency crews.

The Mechanics shop for the No. 1 hall is the main facility for the repair of their emergency vehicles, we had also completed work for the parts room stairs and response from all parties is excellent.

Dealing with the only "one stop surface safety shop", also allowed the Fire Hall to get all their tiled washroom and shower areas anti slip treated at the same time by the same company, which used the Safe Tile micro etching treatment.

Tile Safe Products is offering a unique, sustainable and environmentally friendly remedial solution range for virtually any surfaces and situations. The solutions provided by the company are also being used at thousands of situations throughout various parts of the world via the Global Safety Surfaces network members.
