Services

We offer a new and safe solution that works at the micro-pore level to improve traction, making your slippery surfaces safer and there is no residue after treatment has been applied.

The process of using our services…

1. Identification

Discuss known issues with owner / management team. Conduct a walkthrough to determine and validate, through visualization, potential slip and fall hazards and risks. Any surface can be a potential slip and fall hazard.

2. Testing

Utilizing the ASM 825A Slip Meter, we test identified areas to determine the Static Coefficient of Friction (SCOF). As noted prior, ADA Guidelines recommends a SCOF of 0.60 and higher. A typical floor falls between 0.25 – 0.50.

3. Treatment

We increase the traction by producing a “micro-tread” on your slippery surface. Problem areas are treated using a proprietary three-step process, which results in an increased SCOF of 0.75 or more.

4. Follow-up

We will schedule two follow-ups in six month intervals (included in the service) to re-test treated areas to ensure proper traction remains.

Coefficient of Friction

Coefficient of friction, a term coined by Leonardo da Vinci, is defined as the amount of force required to move an object across a surface divided by the weight of the object.

Florida Non Slip Services and Consultants tests the Wet Static Coefficient of Friction using an ASM 825A Digital Tribometer. After our testing is completed, we will document our findings and submit a report for your files.

Our goal is to provide readings that exceed national recommendations.

Our company is built on adherence to our core values:
Safety, Quality, Ethics and Integrity.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends that walking surfaces in public areas have a SCOF of 0.50 or above in all conditions. OSHA has set forth a plan to increase its inspections at medical and retirement facilities this year in an effort to reduce slip and fall accidents in the workplace. They are also meeting with Congress to make the SCOF guideline of 0.50 into a RULE that all businesses must adhere to. Contact us if you need to book a COF testing for your surfaces.
The Americans with Disabilities Act calls for a SCOF of 0.60 for flat surfaces and a 0.80 for ramps. Meeting ADA guidelines may qualify an organization for a tax credit of up to $5,000 (please consult your tax professional) and many organizations also managed to reduce insurance rates. Do your floors meet ADA and OSHA guidelines? If not, please contact us for a free floor consultation so we can show you how our treatment will bring your “slippery” floors into compliance!
