New Floor Safety Standard Can Be Used By Architects and Interior Design Professionals to Design Out Slips and Falls

Share Article

By conducting both pre and post installation wet static coefficient of friction tests on hard surface flooring materials, and analyzing the data generated, architects and interior designers can help their clients identify slip and fall hazards and document compliance with national testing standards. This enables architects and interior designers to minimize the risks to their clients while reducing exposure to future slip and fall litigation. Architects and interior design professionals can document through independent, objective testing that the flooring choices they make will not endanger their clients in the future.
