I don't think the ideal exists. Anything that is flat is going to have some slip issues, though the right floor wax can help, and maybe those peel-off sticky mats to catch dirt/paraffin. 

We have a vinyl tile floor that has a grid pattern embossed into it - 1" squares. It is pretty much non-slip, but wax cannot be scraped off easily because of the embossed indentations. We need housekeeping to do some serious machine stripping and rewaxing every two weeks to clean it.

Our entire lab, including histology, has linoleum flooring. We cover areas with non-skid mats as necessary. 


We will be renegotiating our lease shortly and are considering having the building management company replace the flooring. Are there are any recommendations for a superior, non-slip, easy to clean and maintain flooring for the lab, particularly histology?
