Progressive Architecture

Author: Kohr, R. L.
Type: Journal Article
Year: 1991


Kohr describes measures that designers and architects can take to ensure safer floors. Architects have the legal responsibility to provide reasonably safe premises and should take into account the potential uses and misuses of that place. Slip resistance test methods have their own limitations. Methods established by ASTM and ANSI standards are useful and the methodology is continually being improved.
