Quality Assurance Services for Architects, Engineers, and Interior Designers

TractionAµditing takes a proactive approach to help architects, engineers and interior designers reduce slip and fall accidents in their design projects. TractionAµditing’s traction compliance testing service is designed to help architectural firms, interior designers and site and design engineers assess the slip resistance of both proposed flooring selections and completed projects for compliance with ADA, OSHA and ANSI national traction standards. Our traction compliance testing service offers a quality assurance (QA) program to assist architects and interior design professionals with the selection of appropriate flooring surfaces with pre and post installation testing to ensure a safer environment in the projects they develop through the utilization of testing to the ANSI/NFSI B101 national standards.

Core Services for Architects

TractionAµditing can work with your architectural and interior design professionals to:

  • Document compliance of proposed flooring choices with ANSI wet COF standards.
  • Provide comprehensive, on-site floor surface testing to document compliance of installed flooring with ANSI wet COF standards.
  • Develop risk management and maintenance strategies with your clients to minimize the frequency and severity of slip and fall incidents after completion.

Objective Data for Contractors

With the staggering cost of liability insurance and litigation, in today’s climate it pays a contractor to have objective data documenting the coefficient of friction of flooring projects before they are turned over to the owner.

By using TractionAµditing's traction compliance testing services and testing to the ANSI/NFSI B101.1 hard surface floor testing standard, flooring contractors can have documented compliance with the most current testing standards.This documentation can minimize expensive callbacks and exposure to litigation. We can work with flooring contractors, general contractors and the architectural and design team to devise a testing plan that fits your needs and schedule.

Core Services for Contractors

TractionAµditing can work with your architect and interior design associates to:

  • Provide comprehensive, on-site walkway surface testing to document compliance of installed flooring with ANSI Coefficient of Friction testing standards.
  • Develop risk management and maintenance strategies with your clients to minimize the frequency and severity of slip and fall incidents after completion.

Facility Owners

With the high cost of new construction and remodeling be sure you get what you pay for.

Before starting a project, have the architect specify that all hard surface flooring systems comply with ANSI/NFSI B101 standards and be independently tested by TractionAµditing, LLC before and after installation. Having objective data that your floors meet the current SCOF requirements of the ANSI/NFSI B101 testing standards before employees or customers use them, makes you proactive in providing a safe working environment. This documentation can be used in your defense against slip and fall liability and litigation.

Let TractionAµditing, LLC help you in the planning process as well. Working with your architects to help with proper flooring selection and placement, as well as ongoing walkway auditing, saves you money throughout the life of the facility.
