Friction Tester

Slip and falls are common accidents. However, you can manage the slipperiness of the floor with the most advanced tool- FSC 2011. The device can measure both static and dynamic coefficient of friction and saves you money by avoiding slip injuries. This precision instrument can measure with a variety of test sliders in both wet and dry conditions.

Floor slip resistance testing is an efficient method used to ascertain if a surface is suitable and sufficiently slip-resistant to be used. This testing can be performed on all kinds of surfaces regardless of their make, ceramic, granite, limestone, porcelain, concrete and even wooden surfaces to make it slip-resistant.

With carrying out the floor slip testing, HALKSTOP certified floor inspection specialist will be able to determine if the floor is slip-resistant or dangerous along with offering adequate solutions to make the floor stay safe.

What Is The Need Of Slip Resistance Testing?

The need for a formal risk assessment of slippery floors is often overlooked, however, the risks and dangers can be significantly reduced with simple and inexpensive controls.

Floors that are made of tiles, granite, and other materials are often slippery and accident-prone. However, to prevent slips and falls at home or your business, slip resistance testing should be carried out; otherwise, the outcomes could be disastrous and expensive. In all commercial and industrial locations, slip resistance testing has become an essential need to clearly determine the coefficient of friction of flooring.

Usually, slippery floors cause disabling injuries, and they can be life-threatening in some cases. This is why industrial and other sectors are bringing-in use advanced floor-care products, slip-resistant products for cruise or prefer carrying out periodic floor slip resistance testing to avoid unnecessary slip accidents.

HALKSTOP Floor Slip Resistance Testing to Measure Coefficient of Friction

  • To give an indication about the grip potential of the floor
  • To study the variations of the floor
  • To test the inaccessible areas where larger testing equipment fails to reach
  • To monitor the changes in floor surface properties that might happen over a time span
  • To test the roughness of engineering tools

Based on the testing results, HALKSTOP presents the coefficients of friction of flooring materials and surface treatments. Considering the slip coefficient rating that we get from your current or prospective flooring material, we may suggest you change the product or add anti-slip products so that slip safety can be fully established. With bring in use state of the art installation techniques and materials, we ensure to provide environmentally friendly service.

HALKSTOP Anti Slip Treatment Ensures Adequate Protection

If your floor causes frequent slips then the use of an anti-slip floor treatment may be required. HALKSTOP anti-slip floor treatment enables all the surfaces to be slip-resistant. Our products can help minimize the potential dangers from slip-on by simply minimizing the probability of its occurrence. Even, our slip resistant treatment for tile helps determine surface slip resistance in case of litigations filed or for cases concerning slip incidences.
