ADA Compliant

The Americans with Disabilities Act calls for a SCOF of 0.60 for flat surfaces and a 0.80 for ramps. Meeting ADA guidelines may qualify an organization for a tax credit of up to $5,000 (please consult your tax professional) and may reduce insurance rates. Do your floors meet ADA and OSHA guidelines?

OSHA Compliant

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends that walking surfaces in public areas have a SCOF of 0.50 or above in all conditions. They are also meeting with Congress to make the SCOF guideline of 0.50 into a rule that all businesses must adhere to. Contact us if you need to book a SCOF testing for your surfaces.

Why Use Us

Ignoring spills can lead to slips and potential injuries. This opens the door to lawsuits. By having Slip Stoppers treat your surfaces, you can drastically minimize your liability. Below, we have outlined past court cases that were caused by slips and falls on dangerous surfaces.

Tallent v. Pilot Travel Center

$68,500 verdict – Oct. 2014. Two arthroscopic surgeries: shoulder tear plus aggravation of knee arthritis.

Facts: Diesel spill near pumps of a Flying J truck stop near Tampa. Prior trucker had overfilled his truck with diesel fuel, causing a spill 15-20 minutes before. Apparently the court felt this was enough for actual or constructive notice required under 768.0755. But plaintiff knew about the spill, had walked through the area several times, and the defendant had placed barrels to barricade the area. Defendant also reported that it takes 30-60 minutes to clean diesel spills using an oil absorbent. Jury found plaintiff 35% responsible, so award was reduced that percentage.

Christian v. Venetian Condo

$288,030.00 verdict – Jury verdict / Sept. 2014. Broward County. DOA: Aug 2011.

Plaintiff slipped and fell due to a slippery substance on the parking garage floor at the Venetian Condominium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Plaintiff suffered unspecified personal injuries. Unknown facts regarding details re: the slippery substance. Breakdown: $39,029.72 for past medical expenses, $100,000 for past pain & suffering, and $150,000 for future pain & suffering.

Cohen v. Renaissance Hotel

$770,121 verdict – DOA: July 2010. Miami-Dade County.

The Plaintiff slipped and fell on a wet and slippery wooden deck near a pool at A Renaissance Resort & Spa in Miami, Florida. He sustained injuries to his shoulder, neck, back, mouth and wrist as a result (the extent of his injuries & treatment is unknown). The defendant alleged that there were three yellow warning cones on the deck. The jury found that the plaintiff was 50% responsible and the defendant was 50% responsible.

About

Slip Stoppers is a locally owned and operated business with one purpose in mind — keeping people safe and preventing potentially dangerous, and costly, slip and fall accidents. Cheryl McDonald runs Slip Stoppers out of Clifton Park, NY, servicing the greater capital district.

If you’ve seen the Slip Stoppers truck then you know the motto – “safe floors, wet or dry.” That’s because Slip Stoppers provides a number of floor and surface treatments (interior and exterior) that work to increase the SCoF (Static Coefficient of Friction) rating of treated surfaces, making them safer and slip resistant even in the presence of water or other substances that often lead to dangerous environments.

Our vast portfolio of treatment solutions allows us to serve both commercial and residential customers and make almost any surface safe and slip resistant, from stone, concrete and tile, to laminate and wood floors, even bathtubs and showers!

Residential Services

Slip Stoppers offers a simple and inexpensive method for treating any type of slippery surface, reducing the likelihood of slip and fall accidents.


Bathtubs, Showers and Bathroom Floors

Bathrooms and showers often have tile floors, which can become very slippery when wet. It is no different for the bathtub, whether you have a porcelain, acrylic, fiberglass or enamel bathtub, all these surfaces become very slippery when wet.

The most dangerous room in your house is the bathroom. Hard surface flooring and an aging New York population create a dangerous combination! Especially the young and elderly are at risk. Bathtubs and showers are obviously very dangerous when they are not slip resistant.

Whether you are a residential homeowner or renter, we can treat your shower and tub with our long lasting durable tub grip, raising the Coefficient of Friction (COF) to safe levels for users. This treatment will make your shower and/or tub anti-slip with no appearance change.


Pool Decks, Patios, Steps and Walkways

Living in New York means enjoying the outdoor lifestyle! Whether that means enjoying a morning walk, an afternoon swim or a glass of wine out on the patio in the evening, either way many of us live here because of the beautiful scenery. Using the pool also means our pool decks get wet and often slippery, sprinklers and the frequent rain often make for slippery surfaces around the house such as our walkways and our patios.

The anti-slip treatment that Florida Non-Slip would apply is a non-yellowing, transparent, easy-to-apply liquid cure and seal which provides a clear, flexible and durable abrasion- and stain-resistant protective film.

In addition, this anti-slip treatment offers improved resistance to common pool chemicals. Designed specifically to retain and enhance the appearance of colored concrete and exposed aggregate surfaces for years to come. The compound contains a slip-resistant additive, which establishes an easy-to-clean, anti-slip surface for traditionally slippery areas.

Kitchen Floors, Laundry Rooms and Driveways

Driveways can be extremely slippery after the sprinklers hit them, or how about after a typical New York rainstorm? Kitchen floors and laundry room floors are subject to water and other spills in any home.

Commercial Services

Slip Stoppers offers a simple and inexpensive method for treating any type of slippery surface, reducing the likelihood of slip and fall accidents.

Our four step process prioritizes safety at your business, while keeping costs affordable:

1 Identification

Discuss known issues with owner / management team. Conduct a walkthrough to determine and validate, through visualization, potential slip and fall hazards and risks. Any surface can be a potential slip and fall hazard.

2 Testing

Utilizing the ASM 825A Slip Meter, we test identified areas to determine the Static Coefficient of Friction (SCOF). As noted prior, ADA Guidelines recommends a SCOF of 0.60 and higher. A typical floor falls between 0.25 – 0.50.

3 Treatment

We increase the traction by producing a “micro-tread” on your slippery surface. Problem areas are treated using a proprietary three-step process, which results in an increased SCOF of 0.75 or more.

4 Follow-up

We will schedule two follow-ups in six month intervals (included in the service) to re-test treated areas to ensure proper traction remains.


Using our anti slip treatments, rated the best on the market today, will improve slip resistance of dangerous slippery floors and tiles at your facility. We deliver a complete service with a written warranty for added peace of mind.

Non-slip, anti-slip floor and ceramic tile treatments dramatically increase grip on slippery surfaces. This non-abrasive technique improves slip resistance, making dangerous slippery tiled floors safer!

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) recommends that a level walkway has a (SCOF) of 0.6 or higher in order to be considered safe. An inclined walkway or ramp, should have a (SCOF) of 0.8 or higher, to be considered safe.

This non-slip floor treatment is safe to surfaces and is applied quickly and conveniently without any major work disruptions to your business environment. We work in manageable sections to minimize disruption and, inform you beforehand so that there are no surprises. We can even work when the business is closed for extra convenience!


After we treat your surface, we provide you with an attorney approved document showing the Static Coefficient of Friction rating (slipperiness level). In the event that an accident occurs, and your floor is slip resistant and has a Static Coefficient of Fraction of over 0.60, then you have legal documentation that you did everything necessary to prevent slip and fall accidents.
