Identification and Assesment
By conducting both pre and post installation wet static coefficient of friction tests, and analyzing the data generated, TractionAµditing can help architects, interior designers and 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 or their customers and employees in the future.
