SlipDoctors recently tested a specific type of ceramic tiles' slip resistance after it was treated with Anti-slip Spray for Fiberglass and Acrylic. This non-slip spray provides a hard, textured finish to help prevent slip-and-fall accidents. It can be used on both interior and exterior floors and is designed for areas where water is present or slippery conditions exist.
The ceramic tile was tested using the Pendulum Dynamic Coefficient Of Friction test. This test works through a calibrated “foot” swinging from a horizontal point of release, striking the surface for a known distance then reads the “pendulum test value” on its overswing.
The rubber slider that contacts the floor is constructed of “4S” #96 rubber, recreating a standard simulated shoe sole. It is specifically designed to replicate the most common slipping motion experienced by shod pedestrians, and TRRL rubber #55 for bare feet pedestrians.
The outcome of the test
The slip test outcome showed that the surface had a low slip risk after being treated with SlipDoctors' Anti-slip Spray for Fiberglass and Acrylic. The slip risk remained low for both dry and wet conditions.
After treatment of Anti-slip Spray for Fiberglass and Acrylic, floors will not only have a lower slip-and-fall risk, but floors will surpass ANSI A137.1, A326.3 and B101.3 standards.
