How to do Slip Testing

slip meter

Doing a slip test is not difficult if you have the right equipment!! You can easily measure the coefficient of friction whether the floor is wet or dry. The new meters measure both wet and dry surfaces easily.

We recommend the American Slip Meter. This meter is light weight and comes in a compact carrying case. The slip test can be done both before and after floor treatment to verify the results of Slip Resistant Floor Treatment Products.

The tile that was laid on my outside walkway and 3 porches was extremely slippery when wet, creating a terribly dangerous condition. It was going to cost about $5,000 to demolish and replace. I found SLIP RESISTANT SOLUTIONS on the internet, ordered it, and hired a contractor to apply it. I'd do it myself, except I am a VERY senior citizen.

SLIP RESISTANT SOLUTION was easy to apply, and certainly did what it said it would do, and did not change the appearance of the tile. I even received a phone call from the company to be sure I was satisfied with the final results. Amazing in this day!

"I kept coming to your website before I decided to make the purchase. Boy am I glad I did. My travertine looks just as good as it did before we applied the solution and the traction is so much better!"
