Metal Floor Testing 

Surface performance provides UKAS certified lab testing on surface materials for safety against trip, slip and fall hazards.

We follow national slip resistance guidelines in line with BS7976 as set by international ISO standards and guided by the UK slip resistance group.

    Metal walkways are common in public and work places. They are not very slippery in normal conditions, but they can carry slip, and fall hazards when wet. It is vital to adjust friction levels of metal walkways to stop slips/fall on the aforementioned surfaces.

    Metal floors safety can be increased by employing various techniques and designs. We provide testing for your metal floors and matting or any other anti-slip product you are using for metal walkways.

      Benefits of the metal floor testing

      Choose the right anti-slip product.  

      For metal floors, adding friction with the help of anti-slip products can enhance the safety level of floors. We test floors and anti-slip products and provide a slip resistance rating so you can choose the best layer for the metal walkways.

      Suitable for all conditions  

      Metal walkways may look safe in normal conditions but may not perform well in changing weather and wet conditions. Metal may increase in roughness with time. All these situations are tested with the best suitable testing methods to minimise the risk of slip and fall.

      We have instructed Surface Performance to carry out slip testing at all of our warehouses that have high foot and vehicle traffic. The flooring is tested after initial installation to check that our contractors have achieved the PTV values that we specify in both dry and wet conditions. Surface Performance are always available at late notice and their reporting time is exceptionally efficient.

      We were delighted with the last minute slip test that we arranged with Surface Performance at one of our London properties following an incident that happened in a canteen area. We were able to demonstrate that the flooring was fit for purpose in both dry and wet conditions through accredited testing.
