Slip Testing for Architects

Surface Performance Ltd provide pendulum slip testing services to architects and building design engineers throughout The UK.

We have carried out slip resistance testing in London, Brighton, Bristol, Bath and Swindon for clients wishing to determine the slip resistance value and pendulum test value (PTV) of surfacing products prior to installation on site.

Slip testing is carried out using pendulum slip resistance equipment and can be performed either on site or in our environmentally controlled test laboratory in South West London.

Slip testing is an economic method of determining the safety and slipperiness of flooring to ensure the safety of end users. Testing is carried out in three pendulum slip swing directions in both dry and wet conditions. A full pendulum slip test report is then issued within 48 hours after completion of the slip test. The test report is compliant with BS 7976 and The UK Slip Resistance Guidelines.

For slip testing in London, Darlington, Durham, Edinburgh or Aberdeen, please contact us and we will be happy to help. Of course, we also provide testing services throughout the rest of the country.
