Slip Testing – Standard 4 Coat Sparta-Quartz System

24th February 2012
We were supplied with a ply board panel coated with standard 4 Coat Sparta-Quartz System on 21st February 2012, in order to carry out Slip Resistance measurements. The quartz system was beige in colour.

Slip Resistance
The equipment used was a TRRL Pendulum manufactured by Stanley and calibrated in May 2011. Testing was in accordance with BS7976 Pt 1-3:2002. The equipment was fitted with a 4S rubber slider as stated in the UK Slip Resistance Group Guidelines Issue 3 2005. Wet and dry measurements were taken. The floor sample was tested as delivered i.e. not cleaned. The room temperature was 17.5ºC.


According to The UK Slip Resistance Group Guidelines Issue 3 2005 Pendulum Test Values (PTV) are related to slip potential as follows (when
using a 4S Slider) :-

– High Potential for slip:  PTV 0-24Moderate Potential for slip PTV 25-35
– Low Potential for slip:  PTV 35-65
– Extremely Low potential for slip:  PTV Above 65

All the readings were in the Extremely Low Potential for slip class.
It was noted that the surface was very aggressive & the slider had to be reprepared
after each run.
