Designed for regular testing to stop slips & falls
SlipAlert was designed specifically to be easy to use and give consistent results in wet and dry that match the Pendulum. It is designed for regular testing and designed to give you the management information you need to keep floors safer and stop people falling.
Analysis of the trend graph
SlipAlert LLP will give you a guide to understanding your floors and how to analyse the trend graph. The above graph shows a rising trend indicating that over time the floor is becoming more dangerous. This could be because of wear or because of a gradual build up of dirt or contamination. You can easily test this by cleaning an area of floor and re-testing.
