St. Francis Westin Hotel in San Francisco completes slip prevention upgrade courtesy of BCD

The St. Francis Westin Hotel in San Francisco completed a refresh, restoration and slip prevention upgrade to the bathrooms of all 1,200 rooms. 

The update, performed by BCD Management Surface Specialists, included a refresh and slip prevention installation that employs a soft blast process, where soft powders are used to restore the safe guard bottom as it cleans and polishes an entire tub or shower. The slip protection was installed at a cost of approximately 5 percent of the investment that would have been required to replace each bathtub or shower unit.

The BCD soft blast process complies with all Safety Standards issued by The National Safety Council, A.S.T.M. (American Society of testing Materials), OSHA, ANCI/NFSI and ADA.
