In the marketplace, architects, designers, and specifiers are being educated to select products that are NFSI certified in high-risk areas. It is their assurance that the products have been clinically tested and meet the highest performance standards.
This is just another indication that Mat Tech products are leading the industry with the highest performing, most innovative, and now the safest mats available.
The National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) has certified the floor mats listed as Slip Resistant.
Before a product is certified as Slip Resistant, it is subjected to a rigorous series of tests:
Phase 1 Testing
Mats were submitted to the NFSI for laboratory for testing with the Universal Walkway Tester (UWT). The mats were wet tested for Static Coefficient of Friction (SCOF) under NFSI 101A guidelines. After meeting the NFSI standard for slip resistance, they were eligible for Phase 2 Testing.
Phase 2 Testing
Under Phase 2 testing, the mats were installed in a real world application for a minimum of thirty days. They were exposed to the same demands as that of the application including commercial traffic loads, exposure to cleaning agents, spills, etc. After the test period has expired, the mats were cleaned and wet-tested for SCOF. Once the mats met the NFSI’s minimum acceptable level of slip resistance, they were classified as “High-Traction” and were NFSI certified.
All of the following slip resistant floor mats offered by Mat Tech have been NFSI certified:
