May causes slip to death…
Can protect 90% of accidents…
Leading-edge, "FLOOR SLIP-STOP"
1. TILE SLIP-STOP
2. COATING SLIP-STOP SOFT
3. COATING SLIP-STOP HARD


It is common to hurt by sliding on slippery floors to give various safety accidents. This "FLOOR SLIP-STOP", developed from advanced technology, may easily protect these accidents.
Referenced Data
1. According to US National Safety Council and Statistics Canada,
- It is 25,000 who suffer from slippery
- This slippery may be the 2nd reason for death
- The half of home accidents is slippery
- The annual amount of compensation for slippery accidents is more than 2 hundreds millions.
2. According to Canadian Injury Prevention Foundation
- It may be prevented that the 90% of all slipping accidents.
Comparison
FLOOR SLIP-STOP is classified into following two types.
Item TILE SLIP-STOP
COATING SLIP-STOP SOFT
COATING SLIP-STOP HARD
Treatment Tread(etching) Coating
Application Tile, stone
(Tile, marble, natural granite, ceramic, terrazzo and etc.)
All floor materials
(Plastic, glass, metal, wood, epoxy coating and etc.)
Economics The initial application fee for "Coating Slip-Stop" is higher than "TILE SLIP-STOP", but it may not different in considering the maintenance fee and re-construction frequency. Therefore you can select any one by your conditions.

Standards for slip (US)
= ADA
= OSHA 1910/1926
= ANSI A1264.2
= NFPA 1901

Slip test results for floor
- Standard value based on US ADA, OSHA, UL, and ASTM -
Measured coefficient of friction Dangerous level
over 0.80 Very Safe
0.60 ~ 0.79 Safe
0.50 ~ 0.59 Relatively Safe
0.40 ~ 0.49 Dangerous
0.35 ~ 0.39 Very Dangerous
0.00 ~ 0.34 Unusually Dangerous
ADA:Americans with Disabilities Act / OSHA:Occupational Safety and Health Administration / ASTM:American society for Testing Materials
WetDry
UL and ASTM(Normal) Over 0.5 may not cause slip for normal people
ADA MUST over than 0.6
After TILE SLIP-STOP 0.7 - 0,9
After COATING SLIP-STOP 1.0
According to ASTM F 1679-96 for wet testing and ASTM C 1028-96, it was resulted not to over 0.5 that the coefficient of friction for wet floor without treatment of slip-protection product. As a result of that, so wetted floor has low coefficient of friction that normal people may easily slip on those floors.

Therefore it is best to treat slip-protection product onto floors have less than 0.5 of frictional coefficient.
