Non slip paint
Question for those who are more knowledgeable about paint...
Our site manager is saying that any paint is non-slip if you put grit in it... Having slipped on a glossy surfaced external chess board painted on the site, where the paint had some fine grit mixed in it by him, I can safely say it wasn't non-slip.
As far as I'm concerned, all you end up with there is glossy grit. Am I right?

I'd say you are.
You can get the exterior paint which dries textured - kind of like the top surface of a paving slab. It's not cheap though!! (and it's not glossy either).
I would say using glossy paint, outside, on the floor is asking for a lawsuit...

Well possible for a brief amount of time but it won't last long and gloss paint will end up being more dangerous than when you started.

An ISO standard applies to non slip paint. I very much doubt his handy work with be up to an ISO standard of protection. It might be worth inquiring about insurance compliance and debating if a non ISO standard anti slip paint is fit for purpose.

Non-Slip paint is a specialist product and not any old Gloss.
As you will see from this : Glidden Trade Products and then Glidden Trade Endurance Anti-Slip Floor Paint which is the actual product
So they are talking rubbish IMHO.
