Locker Room Tile Floors

Shortly after our Grand opening, we received feedback about the tile in the locker rooms being slippery. As a temporary measure, we added mats to the walkway while we researched a solution.

First, we watched how each area was utilized as well as the flow of people. We met with the construction team, tile installer and design team to find a more permanent solution. Last week we tested a few of the tiles with a wet tile slip-resistant product. This product etches the tile surface to give it a slip-resistant grip as you walk on them. 

In the upcoming week we will be taking up the mats to apply the product while we are closed. Our goal is to have a safe walk way that can be easily cleaned daily.

We will have staff monitoring these areas after the installation is finished to get your feedback.

We thank you for your patience and appreciate your understanding. For more information or additional questions see the Welcome Desk.
