MODEL 80 FLOOR & FOOTWEAR FRICTION TESTER

The Model 80 is an extremely simple instrument that measures ''slip resistance'' by determining both the static and kinetic coefficients of friction between leather (dry) and rubber (dry & wet) and the floor surface.

The contact area of the leather pads is designed to simulate the pressure caused by a 160 lb. person wearing leather or rubber soled shoes; thereby providing a realistic comparison with actual service conditions. Test results correlate with slip & fall accident rate.

TEST PROCEDURE

1. Test floors per VOSI V41.21(*), ''Universal Specification / Test Method for Slip Resistant Walkways, in the Field and Laboratory, as Measured by a Drag Type Friction Tester''.

2. Test footwear per VOSI V41.22(*), ''Universal Specification / Test Method for Slip Resistant Footwear, in the Field and Laboratory, as Measured by a Drag Type Friction Tester''.
