One of the issue you might be facing with a floor surface that you specify is, how long the slip resistive quality of the surface will last. While the floor surface initially has a very high R rating (ramp test) or classified highly (Pendulum test) this initial result can be misleading as the surface can wear off very quickly. The accelerated aging wear test can provide at least some indicative result how well the product will stand up in the real world.
The SAFE GRIP anti slip strips and non skid coating solution, has Aced an accelerated wear test with flying colours.
Independent testing has produced outstanding results. The indicative product wear test after 5000 cycles has Safe Grip still showing outstanding slip resistance. Other initially more slip resistant surfaces are showing poor results after the same test.
The Safe Grip product has only shown a 22.5 percent reduction of slip resistive quality, while the other highly slip resistive surfaces have shown an average of 55.5 percent reduction of slip resistance over the 5000 cycle period. While it is hard to precisely equate the value of the number of cycles to an amount of time, a rough estimate equates to 1000 cycles is equal to 1 year.
