Anti-Slip Product Certification-Pendulum' Testing

We are regularly called to provide independent evidence in costly disputes between specifier, supplier and/or end-user.  In most cases the dispute could have been avoided had the product been properly tested before (or immediately after) being laid.

Anti-slip certification is used regularly by our clients to certify new flooring products, determine suitability for a given environment or compare properties of potential flooring choices.We aim to provide everything necessary for those seeking to prove the performance of their product, for sale, tender, or compliance with specification.We provide BS 7976 Pendulum Test Values (PTV's), the Health & Safety Executive and UK Slip Resistance Group's preferred method of test. If someone slips and makes a claim it is this method that will be used in a UK court to determine liability.

In addition, we conduct BS 1134 surface roughness (Rz) measurement.  Rz values are often specified by architects and are included in our sample tests, where surfaces permit such testing, at no extra cost.The resultant standalone test certificate can be used in marketing your product, letting your clients know how good your product is by supplying independent expert evidence, directly or in marketing.  When your products are in direct competition with others, being able to prove the safety of your surfaces is a strong selling aid and helps give those responsible parties who have to live with the finished product peace of mind.

Expert post-test support and guidance are freely available as required.  We like nothing more than talking slips and if we can help you fine tune manufacturing processes, or boost sales by ensuring you have a full understanding of the strengths of your product with regard to slip risk, we will be more than happy to do so.  If in doubt, contact us for expert , impartial, and unbiased advice on all things slip resistance.
