make brick walkway less slippery?

Is there a way to make a brick path less slick when it is wet? I have a customer with a lot of brick paths and patios. They are in their 70's and wet slippery bricks are becoming an issue. Even when clean they are slick when wet. Property has a lot of trees so the bricks spend most of the day in the shade.

I seem to remember a sealer that had some fine grit mixed in to help with this issue. Try looking into that, ask your rep they might have some ideas
