The BOT 3000E Tribometer: State of the Art and Standard of Care

BOT 3000E Tribometer

The BOT 3000E Tribometer, from Regan Scientific Instruments, is a highly precise, digital instrument capable of measuring the dynamic and static coefficient of friction (COF) of walkway surfaces in the lab and in the field.  It is the only device qualified for use with ANSI A326.3 “American National Standard Test Method for Measuring Dynamic Coefficient of Friction of Hard Surface Flooring Materials” released in April 2017.  It meets the requirements of ASTM 2508 for the validation and certification of walkway tribometers, as tested by an independent laboratory.

The BOT 3000E and ANSI 326.3 are the result of published research conducted in the United States and Germany and represent the sound scientific methodology required to meet the “Daubert” rule of evidence in United States federal and state courts.  The user friendly interface of the BOT 3000E allows you to regularly
and easily monitor your facility’s walkways and gauge the  effectiveness of  your efforts to maintain slip resistant and hazard free floors. 

Measuring walkway slip resistance with the BOT 3000E per the ANSI A326.3 method allows you to recognize and remove slip hazards, in compliance with the Standard of Care called for in OSHA Section 5(a)(1), General Duty Clause.
