Our team of qualified SSI auditors can provide in-field Coefficient of Friction (COF) testing on all hard walkway surfaces. COF testing is the measurement of slip resistance potential on hard surface flooring materials.
For new floor surfaces, SSI can provide in-field COF testing prior to occupancy. For existing floor surfaces, SSI can provide in-field COF testing after routine maintenance or remediation procedures.
SSI offers lab testing according to the American National Standard Test Method, ANSI A326.3, Section 8.1 Laboratory Test.
SSI follows the strict guidelines established by the American National Standards Institute to ensure validity of all product testing.
The consulting team at SSI will offer suggestions regarding tribometer selection and usage (in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions). Following tribometer selection, SSI consultants will provide guidelines for in-house testing.
SSI has the capability of monitoring all in-house testing through the STEP application. Routine monitoring identifies trends, which can add an extra layer of protection by ensuring compliance with industry standards.
