How We Test

  Wet Pendulum Slip Resistance Test The wet pendulum slip resistance test is generally conducted using a Wessex or Munro Pendulum Friction Tester. This pendulum device is portable and consists of a weighted foot with a test slider that swings down and slides across the surface wetted with water for 125mm. The weighted foot comprises […]

  • Providing advice on floor surfaces, materials, frequency of testing and remedial processes.

Many tests and measures are taken to achieve the best and most accurate results available for our clients. These include:

  • Wet Pendulum Slip Resistance Test: using state of the art slip resistant friction testers our trained professionals are able to test almost all surfaces. Generally they do this by wetting a surface, applying a specified force from the friction tester which than has a ‘foot’ that swings in a pendulum motion over the surface, than a friction/resistance measurement can be taken.
  • Floor Friction Testing or ‘Tortus slip testing’: Uses technical machinery that measures the friction/resistance of a dry surface. At its most basic this device has a specially manufactured rubber base and is operated by motor that is moving the device over the measurable surface (approx. 1m/min) recording the resistance applied on it.
  • Other Wet testing and Dry testing are available and conducted, such as the wet barefoot and oil wet ramp tests.

Once these tests are conducted we than take the results and analyse it, our professionals are than able to calculate the resistance and friction and then are able to report back to the client giving the results and our informed opinion of whether or not these surfaces measure comply with the relevant standards.
