Slip Testing

The Slip Test

Our slip resistance testing comprises of a pendulum slip test and a roughness test.  After an on-site slip test a BS 7976 compliant report is compiled for the client showing the full testing method and results.  All our on-site slip test assessments are followed up with guidance and aftercare advice.

A Munro Portable Skid Resistance Tester and a Surtronic Duo are used following the recommendation of the Health and Safety Executive and UK Slip Resistance Group to the British Standard 7976.


The criterion for judging the results of a slip test is based on the work of the Building Research Station in the 1960s, supported by the experience of investigators and bodies such as the former GLC over the last 40 years. This work suggested that for unencumbered, reasonably active pedestrians aged between 18 and 60 a PTV level of 36 or above represented an acceptably low risk of slipping when walking in a straight line on a level surface.

On completing your report Oltco will advise you on the steps, if any, required to make your floor safe and comply to these regulations.  Oltco offer a variety of non-slip floor options from floor coatings to non-slip floor treatments.  Oltco will work with you to provide a safe and practical floor which meets your budgetary requirements.
