The Skid Resistance & Friction Tester is suitable for both site and laboratory applications to perform tests to the following standards:

  • BS 812 Pt. 114
  • BS EN 1097-8 Determination of Polished Stone Value
  • AS/NZS 4586:1999 Slip resistance classification of new pedestrian surface materials
  • BS 6077 Pt 1 Clay and calcium silicate pavers for flexible pavements.
  • BS 7044 Artificial sports surfaces: person/surface interaction.
  • BS 7188 Impact absorbing playground surfaces
  • BS 8204 In-situ flooring, part 3 Code of practice for polymer modified cementitious wearing surfaces.
  • ASTM E303 Standard Method for – Measuring Surface Frictional Properties Using British Pendulum
  • BS 7976 Method of operation and calibration of the pendulum tester.
  • EN 1436: 1997 Road Marking Materials BS EN 13036-4:2003 Road and Airfield surface characteristics
  • Most recently its uses include the testing of astro turf and wooden decking.
  • The Skid Tester measures the frictional resistance between a rubber slider mounted on the end of a pendulum arm and the test surface.
  • This provides highway and flooring engineers with a routine method of checking the resistance of wet and dry surfaces to slipping and skidding.
  • It is based on the Izod principle: a pendulum rotates about a spindle attached to a vertical pillar.
  • At the end of the tubular arm a head of known mass is fitted with a rubber slider. The pendulum is released from a horizontal position so that it strikes.
  • The sample surface with a constant velocity.
  • The distance traveled by the head after striking the sample is determined by the friction of the sample surface. A reading of Skid Resistance is obtained.
