DCoF (Dynamic Coefficient of Friction)

DCoF Testing or slip testing for measuring the surface of flooring materials and concrete. $500 per.

  • 1 hour
  • 500 Canadian dollars
  • Jobsite

Service Description

Measuring the slip resistance of walking surfaces can be performed in the laboratory or on-site. Applicable regulations, the appropriate test device and test method, surfaces to be tested (flat surfaces, ramps and stairs, areas of surface wear, contamination, and irregular flooring surfaces), and applicable types of footwear are all important considerations. Static Coefficient of Friction, or SCOF, measures the resistance of an object starting into motion, while the Dynamic Coefficient of Friction, or DCOF, measures the amount of force required to keep an object in motion. Each affects human locomotion safety very differently. The one constant across principals and industries is that coefficient of friction (COF) is measured on a scale of 0 to 1, with 0 indicating no friction. DCOF, or dynamic coefficient of friction, is the primary product performance measure used by the North American tile industry to identify suitable applications for a floor product.
