The best slip testing

Other slip test companies will try to sell you slip testing with out of date or inaccurate slip testing. SlipAlert and the Pendulum are the only 2 British Standard slip tests... but SlipAlert is designed to be portable and accurate on all floors. the Pendulum, is bulky, difficult to transport and slow. It requires an expert user and even then the results can easily be wrong. Our slip testing is the most accurate and most comprehensive. With SlipAlert we can take many measures across your floor and look for variations or areas of slip risk. While the Pendulum tester is still setting up, we will have taken dozens of tests (that would take days with a Pendulum). SlipAlert results convert quickly to Pendulum Test Values (PTV) and Coefficient of friction (CoF).

 

 

 

Annual Slip Risk Assessment

 

Slip risk assessments can now cost far less than you might think. We can conduct annual slip risk assessments to monitor the risk of your floors. contact SlipAlert for details.

 

 

 

 

Independent Slip Risk Monitoring Service

 

We can arrange to periodically monitor floors floor you. This may be done in conjunction with internal slip testing. We can assess the slip test data that you collect and periodically we'll make tests to confirm the slip testing data matches the slip risk of your floors. As a part of this ongoing service, we'll work with you to reduce slip risks across your business. contact SlipAlert.

 

Slip Testing Procedures and Processes

 

We can help you to write procedures for floor testing that will reduce your liability and will reduce the risk and cost of slip injuries. Together, we'll assess each floor area and agree the level of slip risk and the likelihood that the slip risk will change. Some low floors may not need checking from one year to the next. Others may need checking more frequently. We'll help you to document a manageable process that will protect your business and will keep staff and customers safe when they walk on you floors. For details contact SlipAlert.

 

Due Diligence and Legal Requirements

 

You have a legal requirement to keep your floors safe for customers and staff. When you engage our slip testing services, we'll help you to understand why floor safety is important and how you can show due diligence while also making floors safer. We can help you to quickly reduce slip injuries in your business. contact SlipAlert.

 

British Standard Slip Testing

 

We use SlipAlert (BS8204:6) British Standard Slip Test. SlipAlert has been shown to match the Pendulum, the only other British Standard slip tester but our tests are far quicker and more reliable.

contact SlipAlert.

 

Pendulum Slip testing

 

As standard we test with with SlipAlert. Our test results can be converted to Pendulum Test Values with high reliability. Independent tests in Europe, UK and Australia suggest a very high correlation between SlipAlert Test Values (STV) and Pendulum Test Values (PTV). contact SlipAlert. Note if you need a Pendulum test to corroborate the SlipAlert test then we can arrange for that too.

 

Roughness slip test - don't

 

Some slip test consultants test for slip risk using roughness. Roughness tests are very misleading, do not measure slip resistance or change to slip resistance and cannot detect contamination or poor cleaning. Some consultants will tell you that the roughness value has changed and so you need a new slip test. That is nonsense, changes to Rz roughness happen randomly on floors and do not reflect changes to slip resistance and any good slip consultant will know that. Some will test stair nosings with roughness. That too is a waste of time and will give a misleading result. BRE tests have shown that falls on stairs have very little to do with the slip resistance of the stair nosings. Roughness does not measure of slip resistance, so the fact that the test can be made does not make it a valid slip test.

 

SAT Slips Assessment Test

 

We can take SlipAlert values and show you reports based upon the HSE SAT software and a reliable measure of slip resistance. We have prepared a thorough evaluation of SAT and we can explain its strengths and weaknesses. SAT is far more effective when used alongside a real measure of floor slip resistance. contact SlipAlert.

 

SlipAlert Slip Testing

 

SlipAlert slip testing is the very best in the world. It is one of only two British Standard slip test machines and is the only one of these that is quick, accurate and has a digital display of the slip test value. Our testing is often far more thorough because we use the best slip test and we understand the causes of change to slip risk in different flooring situations. contact SlipAlert.

 

Testing anti-slip coating and treatments

 

Anti-slip coatings and treatments should be tested. Not all anti-slip coatings will work the same on all surfaces. An acid etch may work on one ceramic tile but may damage a different tile. Coatings will not always bind as manufacturers promise. So measure the slip resistance of anti-slip coatings and treatments before you purchase.

 

Durability of anti-slip properties

 

When you buy a new floor or apply an anti-slip coating you want it be safe and to stay safe. In reality, the anti-slip properties of many floors degrade. We can test the floor over time and help you to understand the durability of the anti-slip flooring and how to keep it safe over time.

 

Slip Testing Three Layer Model

 

We do more than test your floors for slip risk. We'll explain the three layer model the floor layer, the barrier layer and the human layer. We'll explain the relationship between the three layers and how you can reduce slip risks by managing each of the layers.

For details contact SlipAlert.

 

DIY slip testing

 

If you want to conduct your own slip testing, you can hire SlipAlert for 1 week or one month or lease or purchase SlipAlert. Remember, SlipAlert offers far more than the world's best slip test machine, we also offer advice, training and guidance on how to reduce slip accidents and reduce slip injuries. For details contact SlipAlert.

 

Slip Testing Swimming Pool Floors

 

Swimming pool surrounds can become slippery. We have wealth of experience of testing swimming pool flooring including shower rooms and changing rooms. We look for areas of risk and causes of risk. We test for body fats, we test the effectiveness of your cleaning, we test for build up of soap or other contaminants. We can test for wear, and test any anti-slip coatings or treatments that have been applied to floors. contact SlipAlert.

 

Slip Testing for Factory Floors

 

Factory floors can quickly get wet, dirty, and covered in dust, oil or grease. We test new floors, we test before and after cleaning, we test areas of floor that are painted, or worn or where leaking machines contaminate the floor. contact SlipAlert.

Slip testing that is better then the best slip tester and far better than the rest...

 

SlipAlert slip testing is far quicker than Pendulum testing. SlipAlert measures wet slip risk unlike many other test machines. HSE say that GMG, Tortus and FSC2000 are not reliable measures of wet slip risk. SlipAlert testing is far better than Rz microroughness testing and can be used instead of roughness with SAT the slips assessment tool.

Contact SlipAlert for more information.

 

Anti-slip testing

 

If you want to test the effectiveness of anti-slip flooring, anti-slip coatings or ant-slip treatments then SlipAlert is the best way to test any anti-slip measure.

Contact SlipAlert for more information.

 

Matches Lab testing

 

SlipAlert testing of in-situ floors is as accurate as tribometer lab testing and will give you COF (coefficient of Friction) SCOF or PTV results that match the results you'd get from a slip test consultant or slip forensic engineer or specialist tribometry. SlipAlert results reflect the slipperiness of your floors and accurately measure actual slip risk.

Contact SlipAlert for more information.

 

Other slip testers don't work

 

HSE think trundle tests and sled tests don't work for measuring wet slip risk. The American slip meter appears to work in the same way as the sled tests and trundle tests that don't measure wet slip resistance of floors. SlipAlert and pendulum are the only two slip tests proven to match real slip risk and to accurately measure the squeeze film effect that causes wet slip risk and most slip accidents.

  • sick pay

  • overtime working and temporary labour

  • production delays

  • insurance investigation time

  • ill-feeling: the person who slipped may claim compensation

  • fines

  • loss of contracts

  • legal costs

  • loss of business reputation
