About DCM Surfaces
DCM Surfaces are a company that specialises in highly innovative flooring products particularly for child friendly, outdoor play environments. The surfaces they install aren’t limited to these applications though and are in use in many environments across the length and breadth of the country, but implementation in high-risk areas means that this safety product should be subjected to rigorous testing.
Whilst DCM's surfaces had been thoroughly tested for impact resistance qualities and other parameters required for flooring of this nature, largely, little research and testing had been conducted in a formal manner as to the slip resistance qualities of the product not just by DCM but across the entire industry.
This is where DCM differred to their competition. They took a proactive approach to slip resistance and asked our CEO Terry Tyrell-Roberts to conduct an exhaustive evaluation of the product range which concluded the flooring was indeed amongst the lowest risk surfaces for slips.
