The BOT-3000E is specified for the ANSI A137.1 DCOF wet slip resistance test (or "AcutestSM") that is required for indoor ceramic tile by the current International Building Code, as well as the ANSI/NFSI B101.1 (SCOF) and B101.3 (dynamic coefficient of friction slip resistance test). Ceramic Tile Institute of America endorses the Tortus and the Pendulum. In a study of nine types of tribometers at the University of Southern California Medical Center in which slip-and-fall experts from around the world participated, the Tortus received the highest rating; click here for details. SlipAlert has had very favorable reviews from British and Australian government safety research agencies. The static coefficient of friction method ASTM C 1028-07 is principally used for manufacturing quality control purposes rather than assessing slip resistance, but is sometimes specified as a poor indicator of slip resistance. We recommend using the Tortus or pendulum test instead, as these are more reliable and are recommended for slip resistance by Ceramic Tile Institute of America. We also recommend the BOT-3000E, as it has official ANSI/NFSI test methods and safety standards.

BOT-3000E Binary Output Tribometer can measure both
static and dynamic friction, and with "smart" sensors is
the latest in floor friction technology (click on the photo
