Home Press Release J+J Kinetex products earn NFSI certification

DaltonKinetex products from J+J Flooring Group, a leading manufacturer of commercial specified flooring, have received National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) certification as a High-Traction Surface. As a credible third-party certifier, NFSI’s commitment to education, research and the development of standards reinforces J+J’s commitment to safety. A milestone for the Kinetex brand, having high-traction certified products enhances overall safety performance and is an added benefit to its portfolio of product attributes.

The NFSI certification involves two phases and measures both static and dynamic coefficients of friction under both dry and wet conditions. The first phase of testing is conducted on new flooring in a laboratory. Phase two testing is conducted immediately after an actual customer installation and again after 30 days, post-installation, to see if traffic and maintenance change the slip resistance.

“We have an obligation to our customers to understand the role flooring might play in preventing slip-and-fall accidents,” said Keith Gray, director of applied research, J+J Flooring Group. “Since its introduction in 2012, the Kinetex brand has firmly established itself as a unique high-performance product in the textile composite flooring category and this NFSI certification elevates the product to the next level.”
