In a nutshell: Increasing slip resistance of the floor surface would be desirable, but there is a lack of evidence as to whether traction properties are linearly correlated with topographic features of floor surfaces or what scales of surface roughness are required to effectively control slipperiness of the floor. The results of this study with previous findings confirm that floor surface finishes require different levels of surface coarseness for different types of environmental conditions to effectively manage slippery walking environments.
