What Is Slip Resistance?


Slip resistance is the roughness of a floor that creates positive traction and reduces the possibility of slipping and falling.

In order to understand slip resistance, a metric is used to gauge the slipperiness of a floor. The coefficient of friction (COF) may be defined as the force necessary to hold two materials together (the foot and the floor) and the maximum force necessary to resist sliding.

In fact, a study from the University of Michigan recommends a COF of 0.5 as a reasonable guide to provide proper slip resistance, although certain activities such as carrying items, pushing or pulling objects or walking up and down-inclined surfaces may require higher COF.
