Standard to Measure Floor Slipperiness Now Available
2009-04-13

ANSI E1.34 - 2009, Entertainment Technology - Measuring and Specifying the Slipperiness of Floors Used in Live Performance Venues, is now available from The ESTA Foundation. The new standard describes a very simple drag-sled for measuring the slipperiness of a performance floor, and two procedures to use with the sled. One uses standardized stainless steel feet on the sled to give a coefficent of friction number that can be used to describe the floor in a general way. The second procedure measures the slipperiness with a performer's shoe sole materials.

The ANSI E1.34 download document is in PDF 1.5 format, and can be opened with Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader version 6.x and later. The single-copy price is $15; ESTA member and quantity discounts are available.
