Slip Resistance The existence of a slip resistant surface is a conclusion, made by a knowledgeable person, about the capacity of a surface to provide conditions that maintain pedestrian safely and stability. Slip resistance is a concept, not a thing that can be measured in pounds, gallons or meters. No two knowledgeable persons are likely to define the concept in exactly the same way. No two devices are capable of measuring exactly the same thing. Barrett Miller
