Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 September 2004
Status: inactive
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Footwear): 61.060
scope:

This test method covers the operational procedures for using a variable incidence tribometer(Footnote 2) (VIT) for determining the slip resistance of planar walkway surfaces or walkway surrogates (test surfaces) and can be used for footwear bottom materials and surrogates (test feet) in either the laboratory or field under dry, wet, or contaminated conditions. This test method does not address all methodological issues (for example, test surface and test foot material selection and preparation, experimental design, or report preparation).

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Footnote 2 - The English XL is covered by a patent held by William English. The sole source of supply of the apparatus known to the committee at this time is William English, Inc., 20500 North River Rd., Alva, FL 33920. If you are aware of alternative suppliers, please provide this information to ASTM International Headquarters.
