DS Parke Solutions Services

Our goal is to work with you to attain proper tread patterns and SCOF level that ensures the safety of your environment.

Each Anti-slip Treatment is applied by one of our certified technicians. Our technicians will conduct an assessment of the surface being treated and determine a customized ratio of treatment and SCOF (Static Co-Efficient of Friction) that will be created for your specific surface material in your specific geographical area. Once the product has been applied and neutralized, there is no need for curing or drying time. These treatments will be completed at a suitable time that will not impede your flow of business. Your daily operations can proceed as normal.

With our Matting Solutions, you have the option to install your own or have the installation completed by our technicians. Choosing the perfect solution is dependent on many variables. Our consultants are available to help you assess your environment and requirements.

Karndean is spectacular line of luxury vinyl floors. Various colours, styles and patterns are available for your selection. Once you have have completed your selection process with a consultant, these floors are expertly installed by our professionals with a strong attention to detail.

A Tread Pattern is best described as the fingerprint of the surface. All silica sand base surfaces have a smooth fingerprint. Posigrip® enters into the pores of the surface and microscopically changes that fingerprint by widening and deepening the pores. The end result?..the creation of a non-slippery tread pattern.


The Static Coefficient of Friction between two solid surfaces is defined as the tangential force required to produce sliding divided by the normal force between the surfaces.

As adopted by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) & American Society of Testing and Materials (A.S.T.M)..

"A static anti-slip coefficient of friction of .50 or above is considered a safe walkway surface with a dry condition. A reading below .50 is considered an unsafe walkway surface."


  • .60 or above...Very Safe
  • .50 to .59...Relative Safe
  • .40 to .49...Dangerous
  • .35 to .39...Very Dangerous
  • .00 to .34...Unusually Dangerous
