ANSI A137.1 and ANSI A326.3 Slip Testing
The ANSI A137.1 slip test (or “DCOF AcuTest” as it is sometimes called) and the ANSI A326.3 (which is basically the same test as A137.1) is performed using the BOT-3000E digital tribometer. This test is primarily a wet test where a 0.42 DCOF or greater is considered the minimum for level indoor floors that are expected to get wet in use. The ANSI A137.1 tile slip resistance test can be done in the dry condition as well upon request. This test is incorporated in the 2012 International Building Code (IBC), and has taken the place of the old ASTM C1028 SCOF test, so building inspectors may require this test.
We conduct this test for $200 per sample. Turnaround time for laboratory testing is usually 2-3 business days. Here is a sample of the report you will receive via email. THREE individual pieces of your flooring are called for in the standard. They should be at least 10″ wide. However, we can run this test on smaller samples and on only one sample, if necessary. You can pay by credit card, Paypal, send a check with your sample, or wire transfer. We need to know the name of the client (for the purpose of the report), how you would like the sample named, and we need an email address to send the report to. Your report will be certified and stamped by a registered Professional Engineer. You can also pay for the test online by clicking the “Pay Now” button below, and then just send the info along with your samples (carefully packed) to:
