Protect your Business

  • Verify and confirm slip resistant values for new floor surfaces prior to installation.

  • Monitor how your maintenance program and foot traffic influence the slip resistance of your surfaces.
  • Identify your Pendulum Test Value for your flooring surfaces and compare with recommended standards.

Floor Auditing Reports

Slip Testing is concluded with an audit report that follows the guidelines of ASTM F1694-14, “Standard Guide For Creating Investigation, Evaluation, and Incident Report Forms for Slips, Stumbles, Trips, and Falls,” as well as the ASTM F2048-00, “Standard Practice for Reporting Slip Resistance Test Results.”

All reports follow the Daubert Standard and are
admissible in the court of law.

Every Report Includes

  • Testing diagram with test location(s) and identified testing conditions.

  • Pictures and descriptions of the surface flooring conditions, as per ASTM standards.
  • An executive summary of the standard used for testing.
  • All DCOF, SCOF or PTV (Pendulum Test Value) Measurements and a statistical analysis of the results.
  • If BOT-3000e is used, tribometer reports which include a timestamp, a date stamp, photos, and graphs of each individual DCOF sample.

Laboratory Testing

Additionally, we partner with Consumer Assurance Test Lab (CATL) which is an independent test facility accredited to the ISO-17025:2017 Standard. The lab is fully equipped to measure the slip resistance of floor care products.

CATL tests are conducted in accordance with the following measurement standards:

  • ASTM F2913-19 Measuring the Coefficient of Friction for Evaluation of Slip Performance of Footwear and Test Surfaces . Flooring Using a Whole Shoe Tester
  • DIN 51130 (2014-02) Testing of Floor Coverings – Determination of the Anti-Slip Property – Workrooms and Field of Activities with Slip Danger – Walking Method – Ramp Test

Upon completion of the testing, a report will be issued as suggested per ASTM F2048-00 (2017) and will comply with all of the requirements per ISO-17025:2017.
