The Science of Safety
Safe Floors increases the coefficient of friction when a floor or surface gets wet. the result is that your foot will no longer slip out from under you. This higher coefficient of friction makes it dramatically more slip-resistant and therefore, safer.
Settling Softer Agents
All hard mineral floors and porcelain and enamel bathtubs are made up of both hard and soft agents. The Sure Step Treatment settles the soft agents of the mineral surface leaving the hard agents exposed to provide a safe, secure, non-slip surface. The end result is that the floor and bathtub are actually safer wet than when dry.
Accepted Industry Standard
“A static anti-slip coefficient of friction of .50 or above is considered a safe walkway surface with a dry condition. A reading below .50 is considered an unsafe walkway surface.”
Evaluated in accordance with A.S.T.M. Procedures. National Testing Standard, Inc. Anaheim, CA.
Coefficient of Friction
.60 – Very Safe
.50 – .59 – Relatively Safe
.40 – .49 – Dangerous
.35 – .39 – Very Dangerous
.00 – .34 – Unusually Dangerous
A CLEAN PROCESS
Safe Floors is not a film or a coating. Nor does it leave any chemicals, grit or residue on the surface of the floor or bathtub. Once a surface is treated, 100% of the solution is neutralized and then removed. And there is no down time – you may utilize your floor or bathtub immediately!
In testing done by the National Testing Standards, Inc. of Anaheim California -preformed and documented in accordance with A.S.T.M procedures- Sure Step was proven to increase the coefficient of friction of the treated surface by 200 – 400% when subjected to water.
