Sommaire:This project created a non-slip substance, that when applied to steps and stairs reduced the chance of slips and falls for seniors. Recycled tires and paint were used to produce a product that was environmentally friendly. Eight different combinations plus a control area were subjected to several tests. The product containing 60g of fine rubber produced the best results and was the seniors preferred choice.
