Your SlipAlert does not require calibration in the same way that many mechanical instruments do. Devices that use springs or pulleys often go out of alignment and can require frequent re-calibration. If the wheels turn freely SlipAlert must obey the laws of physics and will give consistent readings just like a steel tape measure. Your SlipAlert should give consistent and accurate readings for many years.
However, in line with UK HSE advice, we now offer a SlipAlert calibration service for £200. Contact your SlipAlert supplier of SlipAlert LLP for details
Checking that the wheels are turning freely is very easy.
1) Hold SlipAlert and spin each wheel independently. They should each spin freely.
2) Assemble ramp but without the legs raised. Lay the ramp on a flat surface. The ramp will have a slight angle, just enough for the SlipAlert to roll from the top of the ramp to the base of the ramp.
3) Distance from top to toe of ramp should read 68 +/-1.
Warranty and maintenance
Your SlipAlert comes with a 1 year warranty on all parts (except slider and battery). It should last for many years.
SlipAlert Verification Services
Your SlipAlert should always give reliable and accurate readings. However, as with all test equipment it is wise to check that SlipAlert is working correctly - see our user guide. We also recommend that you consult an independent floor safety specialist to check and valiate your test result. This should be done occassionally and especially when you are testing floors for legal reasons.
