FAQs

1What services do you Offer?
We offer safety surveys and services that address the problems of Slip and Fall accidents in your Home or Business. We can test your floors to find out if they meet ADA and OSHA Guidelines. If they do not we can bring them into compliance
2COF – Coefficient of Friction
COF – Coefficient of Friction is a scientific numerical measurement indicating the degree to which a floor is slip-resistant. The COF is determined with an instrument (such as the Binary Output Tribometer or BOT) that physically senses the slip resistance of a surface. Both static and the dynamic coefficient of friction measurements are useful in determining floor safety.
3STATIC COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION (SCOF)
STATIC COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION (SCOF) is the ratio of the horizontal force needed to start an object moving to the vertical force pressing an object to the surface.
4DYNAMIC COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION (DCOF)
DYNAMIC COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION (DCOF) is the ratio of the horizontal force needed to keep an object moving to the vertical force pressing an object to the surface.
5What services do you offer?
We offer safety surveys and services that address the problem of slip-and-fall accidents in your home or business. We can test your floors to find out if they meet the minimum ADA Guidelines. If they do not, we cn bring them into compliance.
6If my floors do not meet standards, how can you improve them?
We have specially formulated products that can be applied to you floors that will increase slip-resistance. The application is inexpensive and will not harm your floors.
7What types of floors do you treat?
We can treat all stone tiles, including ceramic, slate, granite and marble or any slippery surface. We treat quarry tiles in commercial kitchens.
8What about cleaning after the treatment?
You can use any cleaner on your tiles following treatment, including degreasers.
9How much does the treatment cost?
The cost will vary depending on type of floor and the square footage. I will be able to answer all pricing questions when I meet with with you and see your floors.
10Can you provide me with a cost estimate?
Every floor is different, so evaluating your specific floor is necessary before providing a price estimate.
