Tile / flooring slip resistance independent testing (HSE pendulum slip testing)

Surface Performance offer a full laboratory slip testing services to manufacturers of tiles and other surfacing products.

Tiles can be tested for slip resistance in the Surface Performance Ltd accredited laboratory in order to ascertain their slip resistance performance values. Slip testing is performed in both dry and wet conditions in three slip test pendulum swing directions. The test results are then used to produce a slip resistance test report specifically for your tile or surfacing product that demonstrates that the product meets HSE guidelines.

The process is very simple, a small sample of the tile should be delivered to our pendulum slip testing laboratory and clearly identified with your company name. After the tile is booked into the laboratory then one of our qualified slip testing engineers will perform the pendulum slip test to the tile in our temperature and humidity controlled area. A test report will then be issued and we will also be happy to discuss slip testing results for tiles over the telephone should you require further advice.
