Shower Tray 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.

    Shower trays are wet and soapy in use, leading to more chances of slips and falls. We test the shower trays and slippery surfaces for their safety levels. Shower trays come with textured surfaces to prevent slips and falls.However, for the sake of an aesthetic look, the smooth surface of a shower tray may present a hazard.

    Our expert team understands how the shower tray testing differs from the other wet and dry floors assessment types. Hence, we repeat multiple scenarios to check the slip rate of shower trays.

      Benefits of the Shower Tray Testing

      Design a safe product  

      Safety is the prime concern when designing floor materials, especially for bathroom areas. Even if there is high slip resistance, there are more chances of slip. Product designers get the right results if the product needs any further modifications with our accredited slip resistance test results. 

      Balancing aesthetics and safety

      shower trays are wet, and the sleek designs can increase the chances of slip and fall. With our slip resistance assessment, you can maintain a fine balance between the look and safety of the shower trays.

      Specific testing for bath areas  

      Bath areas are wet and slippery for apparent reasons. Flooring, trays and bathtubs need certified and accredited slip resistance testing to ensure authenticity. Our testing methods are suitable for all kinds of flooring surfaces, be it wet or dry floor safety assessment.

      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.
