Wondering why this self-audit flooring kit landed on your desk?
It shows options for enhancing the safety, performance, and aesthetics of facility floors, and we think it’s worth your time.
Take a minute (while enjoying the candy) to consider the importance of facility flooring to your business:
- Workplace safety, because slips, trips, and falls are time-consuming hassles at best and the cause of dangerous, costly incidents at worst.
- Durability and performance, because industrial / commercial floors take nonstop abuse and flooring maintenance is highly disruptive to operations.
- Enhanced aesthetics, because floors in poor visual condition send the wrong message to inspectors, VIPs, and employees.
A treat for you and treatment for your floors
About the self-audit flooring kit
What's in the box?
A rigid bar you can fit in your hand to see and feel six levels (low to high) of textured coating options. We've added some candy and a safety-cone business card holder as a little treat and thanks for your time.
What is its purpose?
To give you an idea of performance coating options from Sherwin-Williams, the largest coating manufacturer in the world. The texture bar may be the easiest decision-support tool you'll ever use to assess options for improving floor safety and performance. And it's easily shared with safety managers and other decision makers.
What do I do with it?
- Use the charger on your desk and take the bar into your facility as you enjoy the candy. 😊
- Consider which grit might be the best option for your safety and performance needs.
- Schedule a no-obligation review with a Painters USA floor coating expert to help you prepare for your next audit or inspection. (They'll even bring more candy for your team.)

Reducing three of the ten most common causes of workplace injuries
Slips, trips and falls are a safety hazard and a common cause of workplace injuries, to the tune of over $19 billion per year:
- Falls on the same level ($10.58 billion)
- Falls to lower level ($6.26 billion)
- Slip or trip without fall ($2.52 billion)

How textured floor coatings reduce falling hazards
Textured floor coatings minimize slipping and tripping hazards by increasing the dynamic coefficient of friction or DCOF, which is the measurement of a surface’s slip resistance during motion. It's a proven way to minimize slipping and tripping incidents.
How textured floor coatings enhance performance and appearance
- These textured coatings are waterproof and capable of withstanding significant amounts of abuse like heavy weight, high foot and forklift traffic, abrasion, and more.
- Textured floor coatings enhance appearance by disguising minor flaws and imperfections in the flooring substrate, and they can even be customized for color, sheen, and pattern.
