Ceram is now offering standardised flooring slip tests to ensure flooring surfaces do not pose a health and safety threat to people.

Ceram’s free Guide to Slip Resistance Tests is available to download at the company’s website and provides further information on slip testing and the approved test standards for the flooring materials used in industrial premises.

Ceram performs both the pendulum slip test and the ramp slip test, with the choice dependent on the type of material used for the flooring, its surface profile and the environment in which the floor is being used.

The pendulum test is the preferred test of the UK Health and Safety Executive and can be used both in the laboratory and on-site, and is suitable for use with non-profiled surfaces.

The ramp test, which is performed in Ceram’s purpose-built laboratory, is ideal for industrial surfaces and swimming pools.

Ceram also provides an expert witness service for court cases, providing technical slip test information on floor areas where accidents have occurred.
