Slip Stoppers offers free SCOF Testing services, 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:
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.
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 – 0.40.
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.
We will schedule two follow-ups in six month intervals (included in the service) to re-test treated areas to ensure proper traction remains.
