Description / Abstract:

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. Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee(Footnote 1), which you may attend.

Footnote 1 - This test method is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee F13 on Pedestrian/Walkway Safety and Footwear and is the direct responsibility of Subcommittee F13.10 on Traction.

Current edition approved Sept. 1, 2004. Published September 2004. Originally approved in 1996. Last previous edition approved in 2000 as F 1679 - 00.
