The Process

What the process can involve

  • Arrive on site and carry out a visual inspection of the area / areas to be slip tested
  • Pendulum test the surface in the dry / wet using accredited calibrated pendulum
  • Demonstrate techniques that may improve the slip resistance
  • Carry out a verbal report of the assessment
  • If required establish where / why slips may be occurring
  • Issue a full report including all the slip test measurements and images of the locations tested
  • Follow up and discuss ways to increase the slip resistance should one be required

It is essential that you know just how dangerous your floors are.   SinSlip can provide a comprehensive slip assessment using our Pendulum Slip Tester.

The pendulum measures dynamic coefficient of friction (CoF).

The test is designed to replicate a pedestrian heel strike, the point at which most slips occur.

When a pedestrian heel strikes a wet floor a fluid film is created between them, this can cause a slip.

This test works in wet conditions because it generates a similar fluid film between the slider and the floor.

It can be used to accurately test the slip potential on clean and dry or contaminated and wet floors.

What is a Pendulum Test?

  • The British pendulum is the most accepted pedestrian slip resistance test method worldwide.
  • This test measures dynamic coefficient of friction (CoF).
  • The test is designed to replicate a pedestrian heel strike, the point at which most slips occur.
  • When a pedestrian heel strikes a wet floor a fluid film is created between them, this can cause a slip.
  • This test works in wet conditions because it generates a similar fluid film between the slider and the floor.
  • It can be used to accurately test the slip potential on clean and dry or contaminated floors. The test also works with dry contaminants.
