'Floor Slip Testing' is conducted to Ensure Safe Floors for anyone from employees through to customers and visitors. It is achieved by using the On-Site Floor Pendulum Testing or Off-Site Tests on Floor Samples. Testing determines a PTV (Pendulum Test Value).
The ideal Floor Slip Testing Result for 'Low Potential of Slip' is ≥ 36PTV particularly when a floor is wet when 90% of slips and falls occur (UK HSE data) reducing the probability of slip to 1 in 1 million.

Advice on Flooring and Floor Safety
FloorSlip do not sell floors, it would be a conflict of interest for the independent and impartial services we offer. We do however, have a large amount of experience in flooring, and 'What is a Safe Floor?. It is unfortunate that a majority of the sellers of floors have minimal understanding of ‘What an R-Rating is?’ Or ‘What a suitable Pendulum Test Value should be?’.
If it says ‘anti-slip’ on the packaging or has an R-Rating then it must be OK, mustn’t it? 'NO' - many slips occur because of this incorrect belief.
We suggest you Contact FloorSlip to find out more about Floor Safety, and talk directly to our test specialists who can fully advise you on the pitfalls to avoid.
Floor Testing Standards and Laws
EN-16165 and the UKSRG* Guidelines are the mainstay of documentation underpinning floor testing across the UK. EN-16165 is the new and comprehensive joint British and European standard (released 31 Jan 2021) replacing the aging and less comprehensive BS-7976-2. The UK Slip Resistance Group (UKSRG)* produces Operator Guidelines on Floor Slips and Trips written around EN-16165 and in conjunction with the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE). There are also many other standards used for example by flooring providers and when requested, FloorSlip will test to the standards and test results expected by you.
*The UKSRG quote on their website...'world-leading independent authority on slip resistance. The Group aims to promote a greater understanding of the causes and prevention of slips',
