    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    Other slip test companies will try to sell you slip testing with out of date or inaccurate slip testing.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).

    Independent slip testing or DIY Slip Testing

    Slip testing floors with SlipAlert is quicker, more comprehensive and costs far less than any comparable slip testing. We guarantee to provide a more thorough slip test and a more detailed slip prevention report at a lower price than anyone else.

    With SlipAlert it takes seconds to test each of your floors, measure the slip resistance (coefficient of friction), and determine which floors are safe and which require careful managing. For details of independent slip testing services, please read this page or contact SlipAlert.

    SlipAlert the well established British Standard slip test

    SlipAlert (BS8204)and the Pendulum (BS EN 13036-4:2003, formerly BS 7976) are the only two slip tests that appear in British Standards. The Pendulum was designed in 1930 and is slow, old and difficult to use.

    SlipAlert the well established British Standard slip test appears in BS8204 SlipAlert is designed to build on the success of the Pendulum. It provides accurate measures of slip risk in dry, wet, or contaminated conditions.


    SlipAlert is faster and easier to use and far easier to transport and use than the Pendulum. SlipAlert measures can be taken in seconds and each measure gives an instant indication of the slip risk of the floor. The digital output and ease of use makes SlipAlert a far more reliable measure.
