Over the last 12 years we have provided Pendulum Slip Reports for many major UK Businesses and Architects throughout the UK
Now in to our 12th year of successfully carrying out pendulum slip testing. Over the years we have been the chosen company to test for some of the biggest and well known companies in the world. We believe our service is second to none offering you accurate reliable honest advise. Don’t presume because somebody has slipped or a comment has been made about the flooring that the surface is not fit for the purpose intended. Over 30% of the floors we tested last year we proved by using the pendulum slip tester that the floor surface chosen was suitable for the environment intended and therefore not only ended needless discussions but saved extortionate costs to replace or make anti slip.
In layman’s terms the Pendulum slip test gives a definitive answer whether your floor is fit for purpose under foot when wet or dry. The instrument stands about 2 ft high on a tripod that takes up 1 square meter. A horizontal arm is released with a rubber shoe on the end. The sprung loaded shoe hits the surface and stays connected to the floor for 127mm carrying a marker that resembles a needle. This needle then travels through the numbered scale and stops at the given level of resistance. It’s this reading that determines the suitability of the surface:
Pendulum Test Value (PTV)
0 – 24 High Risk
25 – 35 Moderate risk
>36 Low Risk.
