Using the state-of-the-art BOT-3000E Tribometer, Walkway Management Group of Arizona provides in-field Coefficient of Friction (COF) testing on all hard walkway surfaces to the American National Standard (ANSI) A326.3, “Test Method for Measuring Dynamic Coefficient of Friction of Hard Surface Flooring Materials.”

In-Field Testing

Use our slip test services to validate COF values on new floor surfaces prior to occupancy, to monitor the effect of maintenance and pedestrian traffic on available slip resistance, and to measure the effectiveness of floor care products. Upon completion of the in-field testing an audit report will be prepared in accordance with the ASTM F1694-14, “Standard Guide For Composing Walkway Surface Investigation, Evaluation, and Incident Report Forms for Slips, Stumbles, Trips, and Falls,” and the ASTM F2048-00, “Standard Practice for Reporting Slip Resistance Test Results.”

The audit report will include:

  • a testing diagram with test location(s) and testing conditions identified
  • a description of the hard surface flooring conditions, as per ASTM standards
  • an executive summary of “ANSI A326.3 American National Standard Test Method for Measuring Dynamic Coefficient of Friction of Hard Surface Flooring Materials.”
  • all DCOF Measurements and a statistical analysis of DCOF results
  • tribometer reports which include a timestamp, a date stamp, photos, and graphs of each individual DCOF sample
