In the UK, the HSE’s slip testing method of choice is the Pendulum.
This measures the dynamic co-efficient of friction provided by a floor surface, illustrated by a Pendulum Test Value (PTV).
The R Rating comes from a European test, which uses a ramp to asses at which angle of slope a surface becomes slippery. It is a European standard, not recognised in the UK courts. It gives a range of slip resistance rather than a precise measurement.
Slip risk classification based on Pendulum Test Values according to BS7976.
|Pendulum Value||Slip Risk|
Please be aware that some areas are required to have a Barefoot test, which is a differing result to the Shoe test.
If required, we can carry this test out on request.
