Slip Testing in London

If you are in the London area and are interested in learning more about the slip testing process or would like to book in a slip test then please use the form attached below. Did you know that in The UK, every three minutes someone is injured as a result of slipping on an unsafe floor. The majority of these accidents occur in London as this is the largest city in The UK.

It is therefore essential that if you run a London based office, restaurant, public space, train company, train station or any type of area that has pedestrian traffic that you carry out a slip pendulum test.

Slip testing in London is carried out in line with The UK slip resistance guidelines that also meet The HSE standards for slip resistance. As a professional independent slip testing laboratory based in London, all slip tests are carried out on floors in both dry and wet conditions in various pendulum swing directions. All of our slip testing equipment that is used in London is regularly calibrated by the British Standards Institute user United Kingdom Accreditation Service* conditions specifically for the pendulum skid tester (Munro model).

Our London slip test technicians are fully trained by the skid tester equipment suppliers and verify that the rubber slip sliders are conditioned prior to any testing taking place. You can see the slip testing training certificates for our London slip testing staff here:
