Development of the Slip Guardian opto-mechnical instrument for measuring slip coefficients of floors.
Vision Engineering was approached by Surface Control Limited, a company that was spun off from the Trevor Baylis Brand stable which commercialises patented technology.
Surface Control had conceptualised the Slip Guardian opto-mechanical instrument for measuring the safety slip coefficients of floors in hospitals, supermarkets, schools, airports and industrial plants.
The portable device takes floor measurements that are processed by software to analyse whether the floor is within safe limits. Tracking of the results over time can help improve the cleaning schedule, so avoiding potential accidents and associated liability costs.
