Bathtub Shower and Bathroom Slip Resistance Safety Testing

Bathtub Forensic Testing

A Forensic Study of Slip Resistance

Bathing facilities represent a complicated environment that can result in accidents and claims involving falls in bathtubs, showers, bathrooms, and on bathing facility floors. The bathing process involves more than just the bathing surface and includes the manner in which the bathing facility is used. In addition, the measurement of the bathing surface requires expertise in using the only approved test method for determining the slip resistance of the bathing surface. We measure the slip resistance of bathtubs and showers using ASTM Standard F462 – the only ASTM standard for bathing facilities. We will bring our expertise and Mark I portable slip-resistance tester to your site.
