HAMILTON, OH — The National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) has awarded "High-Traction" product certification to Kaivac Inc.''s No-Touch Cleaning and OmniFlex crossover cleaning systems, according to a press release.

This achievement makes the systems only spray-and-vacuum and dispense-and-vacuum products to receive the certification, the release stated.

According to the release, the Kaivac equipment passed rigorous Phase One and Phase Two testing by NFSI under the ANSI/NFSI B101.1-2009 standard to qualify for the certification.

Phase One entails a pre-qualifying or screening test using the NFSI-recognized BOT-3000 field measurement device, while Phase Two consists of in-depth, independent testing over a period of more than 30 days in a real-world setting combined with additional on-site examination, the release noted.

"NFSI''s ''High-Traction'' product certification constitutes our approval of products that offer a measurable slip and fall accident prevention benefit," said Russell Kendzior, founder and president of NFSI.

"Kaivac is to be congratulated for this safety achievement and for its leadership in this product category," Kendzior added.
