Nu-safe making floors safer

Our Company

Nu-Safe offers Floor Safety Programs to increase slip resistance on various floor surfaces.  The Coefficient of Friction (COF) is a measurement that records how slip-resistant a floor surface is when it is wet or contaminated.  Our technicians are trained and/or certified to ensure the measurements are reliable and are specific to ANSI and ASTM Standards.  The BOT3000 or BOT3000E has passed ASTM’s precision and bias requirements and is capable of measuring the static (SCOF) and dynamic (DCOF) Coefficient of Friction.

  • Anti-Slip Treatment – A Nu-Safe technician applies the anti-slip treatment to the floor surfaces and information regarding the treatment is left with the manager on duty at the time of the installation.  DCOF testing is completed in each zone (before and after anti-slip treatment is applied) SCOF testing is included only if requested.  The treatment carries a warranty and follow up onsite inspections are performed annually until the warranty expires.  Upon inspection, the technician performs COF tests on specific areas that were originally treated and the customer is advised if any trouble areas were located to improve cleaning procedures etc. if necessary.  Follow up phone calls/emails are completed every 45-60 days if approved by the customer until the warranty expires as well.

  • Floor Safety Program Guidance – A Nu-Safe Representative works closely with Risk Management and Facilities personnel prior to anti-slip treatment to develop a safety policy and procedure, specific to each client, when requested.  Most companies have their own policies in place, so we provide additional education regarding floor safety and proper maintenance of the treatment with proper cleaning procedures and cleaning agents.

  • Floor Safety Products

    • RED-X™ – Do It Yourself anti-slip floor treatment used commercially. 

    • Friction® – Cleaner and traction enhancer used to improve COF & increase slip resistance on all floor finishes and marbles. 

    • MainTain™ – Cleaner used for deep cleaning, improves COF, and increases slip resistance on ceramics and hard stones. 

    • Tile & Concrete Cleaner™ – Daily cleaner and degreaser, removes build-up, improves COF, and increases slip resistance on ceramics and hard stones.

  • COF Evaluation – An evaluation/walkway audit is completed in different zones (areas within a location) to obtain COF numbers to determine if their floors are aligned with ANSI and ASTM Standards for walkways.  This helps provide our clients with hard data on slip resistance values throughout their facility.  If slip resistant values need improvement, recommendations are suggested so attention can be given to those areas.  DCOF testing is completed using a rubber sensor in accordance to the ANSI B101.3 and/or ANSI A137.1.  SCOF testing is completed using a neolite sensor as directed by the ANSI B101.1 Standards. 

What is not warranted: Nu-Safe Floor Solutions, Inc. does not guarantee you will not slip and fall. People will continue to slip and fall on ice, food debris and for hundreds of other reasons. What we state is, your chance of falling on a wet, properly maintained smooth hard-mineral surface will be greatly reduced when the coefficient of friction is increased by the Nu-Safe Floor treatment.
