Decking can be used in many applications such as swimming pool surrounds, balcony areas and walkways. We carry out slip tests to various decking products both on site and in our slip test laboratory.
Slip testing of decking is performed in order to determine the slip resistance characteristics of the surfacing. The decking is slip tested in both dry and wet conditions using the pendulum slip resistance tester in accordance with BS 7976-2. The slip test involved a rubber slider being passes over the surface and determining the pendulum test value or PTV.
If you would like to have a decking surface slip tested then please contact our London slip testing office on 0208 2465562. We have slip testing technicians that work throughout the UK performing slip tests to decking samples.
