We also carry the The American Slip meter ASM 725

When it comes to floor testing or floor friction testing to monitor floor safety for slip and fall prevention, one needs a proven Tribometer or Slip meter to determine if a floor or walkway is safe. Our slip meters are proven. We have been manufacturing slip meters (tribometers) since 1993. Our meters are durable, reliable, repeatable and fully supported.  Floor safety programs and floor testing together equals safe floors. Slip and fall prevention is our goal.

The World’s Most Compact and affordable Slipmeter!

An everyday tool for monitoring floor safety and maintenance.
Slip meters are designed for portability and for field use.

Improve Safety - Reduce Negligence

A simple test of the coefficient of friction level of your floors and walkways will provide valuable data about safety levels and ongoing maintenance. Recording of readings in the logbook provided are useful in defense of negligence litigation.

Why You Need our American Slip Meter

Insurance studies in the food and beverage industry, an analysis of over 225,000 worker compensation claims, revealed that slip/fall accidents accounted for over 40% of dollar claims paid out.

The American Disabilities Act (ADA) passed by congress in July 1992 Title III notes: For all business open to the public, The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (ATBCB) recommends flooring and walkways have a coefficient of friction level .60 or above and .80 for ramps. There are penalties for failure to comply and tax benefits for those businesses taking steps to comply.

OSHA sets many requirements for safe floors, walkways and ramps under 29 CFR-1910 referring to providing floors with anti-slip surfaces or maintaining surfaces in non-slip condition. OSHA recommends 0.50 COF.

Accepted Industry Standards

As adopted by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM):

0.50 COF or above has been traditionally recognized as providing non-hazardous walkway surfaces.

An economical floor friction measuring device is what our survey of industry told us was needed

Slip Meter is Easy To Calibrate, Easy to Use

Simple to follow instructions. Perform test in seconds. Designed for ease of operation and handling. Lightweight, complete kit is less than 8 lbs.american digital slip meter ASM 825A

Reliable Slip Meter

One year full manufacture warranty. Precision machined base and parts. Protective powder coat finish. Gage manufactured to plus/minus 1% accuracy. Tested and calibrated prior to shipping.

american digital slip meter ASM 825A

Test materials referenced in various ASTM and ANSI/NFSI standards. Only takes a few seconds to calibrate while in the field. Display holds the high reading until recorded. The new ASM 825A model was designed to improve accuracy and repeatability for wet testing. The meters calibrate to the ASTM C1028 test tile dry and wet as well as the NFSI test tile wet. (NFSI tile only has a wet value) without adding calibration factors.
