America’s Floor Slip Resistance Testing Experts

We’ve tested flooring for the dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF) and slip resistance all over North America and beyond for around 1,000 individual clients so far as America’s leading independent third-party certified floor friction test lab. We don’t lie in court for slip and fall lawyers (like those who mainly use the Brungraber Mark IIIB, which has no ASTM standard, and no standard in any other country on earth as well), and the English XL tribometer (which has a withdrawn ASTM standard, and no standard in any other country on earth), and we don’t help major American tile manufacturers and floor polishers sell slippery tile and stone to unsuspecting consumers (which is what ANSI A326.3 was designed to do).

We just test floors for slip resistance to get architects, building owners, flooring designers and flooring manufacturers the truth based on internationally-accepted, peer-reviewed science so they can avoid costly slip and fall accidents on properties, and allow people to make informed decisions so they can avoid installing a slippery floor problem. Here’s some photos of us doing floor slip resistance testing around North America and beyond:
