Yes, epoxy flooring is a good choice because it is one of the safest and the most durable flooring materials. Moreover, it’s shock and slip-resistant. Also, If you ever spill any chemical on these floors, you won’t have to worry about any permanent damage as long as you address the issue right away and wipe the chemical off.
When it comes to slip-resistance, epoxy floors are the best choice as after installation another topcoat may be applied to make it slip-resistant. However, if the non slip additive topcoat isn’t applied on an epoxy floor, you can experience some slipperiness especially with oil or water spills.
