Kaivac Equipment NFSI Certified

  • Kaivac Equipment NFSI Certified

The National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) has awarded "High-Traction" product certification to Kaivac's No-Touch Cleaning® and OmniFlex? Crossover Cleaning Systems, making these the only spray-and-vac and dispense-and-vac products to receive the certification.

 

Kaivac equipment passed rigorous Phase One and Phase Two testing by NFSI under the ANSI/NFSI B101.1-2009 standard to qualify for NFSI Certification. Phase One entails a pre-qualifying or screening test using the NFSI-recognized BOT-3000 field measurement device. Phase Two consists of in-depth, independent testing over a period of 30+ days in a real-world setting combined with additional on-site examination. Kaivac equipment yielded Static Coefficient of Friction (SCOF) values greater than a 0.6 and therefore passed Phase 2 certification as providing "High Traction" based on the ANSI/NFSI B101.1-2009 "Test Method for Measuring Wet SCOF of Common Hard-Surface Floor Materials".

 

"Our internal testing using the BOT-3000 demonstrated that Kaivac equipment deep cleans and rapidly removes all types of soil and residue from floors leaving them very slip resistant," said John Richter, Technical Director for Kaivac. "We are gratified that NFSI has validated our own SCOF data to officially confirm the floor safety benefits of Kaivac's spray-and-vac and dispense-and-vac products." The NFSI introduced its product certification system ? in which it certifies floor coverings, mats, polishes, finishes, treatments, cleaning chemicals and equipment ? in June 2002 to help reduce the growing number of slip-and-fall incidents, injuries and fatalities in commercial settings.

 

"NFSI's ?High-Traction' product certification constitutes our approval of products that offer a measurable slip-and-fall accident prevention benefit," stated Russell Kendzior, founder and president of NFSI. "Kaivac is to be congratulated for this safety achievement and for its leadership in this product category."
