In a nutshell: It is known that slip resistance performance improves with floor surface roughness. However, the question remains as to whether this correlates in a linear way with surface topographies, and what roughness levels are required for effective slip resistance, including in wet or dry conditions. Findings from this study may impact on floor designs for reducing fall hazards.
