Buy New Pendulum Floor Testing Equipment

FloorSlip are brokers for UK Manufactured Floor Pendulum Test Equipment. The equipment is not only manufactured in the UK but is built and calibrated to British Standards BS 7976-1 (Manufacture of Pendulum Test Equipment) and BS 7976 -3 (Calibration of Floor Testing Equipment).  

WARNING - Before we continue and tell you about the new UK MANUFACTURED Pendulum Test Equipment, please  - understand this - Chinese / Foreign import Pendulum Test Equipment are expensive paperweights and not worth buying - the reasons why are discussed below

Why is it so important to buy UK manufactured Floor Testing Equipment and not a Chinese copy or other cheaper import? After all, foreign imports can be £1000 or more cheaper. There are several reasons why not to buy foreign import Pendulum Test Equipment

1. Foreign imports are NOT manufactured to a standard so the quality of the product is always at question in terms of its final delivered standard.

2. The UK Manufactured Floor Pendulum Equipment is manufactured to specific weights, dimensions, torque values and spring pressures; all of which ensure every pendulum produced will give the same repeatable Pendulum Test Results in UK COURTS OF LAW. A Chinese / Foreign copy does not do this and a purchaser of such equipment will probably find any evidence or values arrived at will be inadmissible in the UK Courts in the event of a slip injury claim.

3. The equipment, though seemingly robust to look at, is sensitive to knocks and easily damaged - try to get spares from ‘one-hung-low’ province in China when your Pendulum Test Equipment gets damaged!!!

4. The UK Test Houses will refuse to Calibrate Chinese Copies because they are not manufactured to a set standard.

5. The Pendulum Slider used in the Floor Testing Equipment have to meet particular Hardness Values to ensure the Pendulum Test Value or PTV results are accurate. It is HIGHLY UNLIKELY that the sliders provided with copies will meet the specified values necessitating you spending additional money on Pendulum Sliders - and at nearly £100 each, they aren’t cheap.
