Swimming Pool Surround Slip Resistance Testing

Slip testing is carried out to swimming pool and leisure centre tiles in order to ensure that they meet The HSE requirements for slip resistance requirements. The testing is carried out using slider 55, which replicates bare foot use. Slip resistance testing of swimming pool surrounds and tiles should be carried out by a UKAS accredited laboratory to ensure reliable and impartial test results.

Slip resistance testing of the tiles can also be performed in the laboratory, whereby the supplier sends in samples for accredited slip resistance testing. Testing is undertaken in an environmentally controlled environment and the slip test is performed by a qualified slip resistance testing engineer.
