When it comes to ensuring the safety of your pool area, preventing slips and falls is a top priority.

Slips & Trips Around Pools

Slips and trips around pools are common and can lead to serious injuries. They can be caused by a range of factors, including wet surfaces, uneven pavement, and inadequate lighting. Slips and trips can cause anything from minor bruises and cuts to more severe injuries like broken bones or head trauma.

To prevent slips and trips around your pool area, you'll want to use a product that provides extra traction and grip. There are several options available, including rubber mats, non-slip coatings, and textured surfaces. One popular product is a non-slip additive, such as Shark Grip Non-Skid Grit Anti-Slip Additive, which can be added to concrete sealers to create a rough surface that provides extra grip.

At Prime Concrete Sealing, we specialize in providing high-quality concrete sealing services to prevent slips and falls. Our experienced team can help you choose the right product for your needs and apply it professionally to ensure the best results.

Shark Grip

Shark Grip is a non-skid grit additive designed to improve the slip resistance of surfaces like concrete, wood, or epoxy coatings. It contains a combination of sharp, hard particles made from durable, abrasive materials like aluminum oxide. These particles create a rough, textured surface that provides extra traction and grip, even when the surface is wet or slippery. When added to a coating, Shark Grip can be an effective way to prevent slips and falls around your pool area.

We recommend Shark Grip as a great option for improving the slip resistance of your pool area. Our team can apply Shark Grip as part of our concrete sealing services to ensure a durable and effective non-slip surface.


Preventing slips and trips around your pool area is crucial for ensuring the safety of your family and guests. Whether you choose a non-slip additive like Shark Grip or another product, it's essential to work with an experienced professional who can apply it correctly.
