Article published in The Construction Specifier magazine talks slip resistance
John C. Sotter and George Sotter of Safety Direct America were published in the July issue of The Construction Specifier magazine with an article talking about floor slip resistance and keeping floors safe for pedestrians. The article talks about the latest International Building Code (IBC) requirements for slip resistance, and its limitations as far as choosing an appropriate flooring material for various situations. The article recommends which slip test methods are based on actual slip and fall research, and how to go about getting reliable slip resistance testing done on flooring samples BEFORE they are in place on your property and causing accidents. Ways of keeping slippery floors dry are also discussed, as well as other juicy tid-bits about slippery floors and testing floors for slipperiness.
