Mini Floor Test Report (Non Court Compliant) Add £69 - Read More

English / Scottish Court Compliant Floor Test Report Contact FloorSlip*- Read More

Same Day / Urgent Floor Testing (24/7 service) Contact FloorSlip*

FloorSlip are aware businesses do not always have the luxury of closing their businesses to conduct floor safety checks or may require urgent pendulum testing or surface roughness testing to complete work. We therefore will conduct testing through the evening, in the night or at weekends as required.

* Total price dependent upon your geographical location


Surface roughness testing augments the HSE approved Pendulum Test but is NOT admissible in UK courts. On its own it can be useful to monitor floor wear over time but the results are difficult to interpret and relate to how effective your floors are at preventing slips only the HSE Approved Floor Pendulum Test can effectively do that (Floor Surface Roughness Testing conducted FREE when a Pendulum Test is ordered)

Surface roughness test in engineering applications

FloorSlip also conduct surface roughness testing in engineering applications  the equipment we use is of the same highly accurate type and can achieve accurate readings of 1 to 200 microns.

About the Court Compliant Expert Witness Reports

All reports are impartial as required by law; FloorSlip are not tied to or allied to any company than can influence the impartiality.

FloorSlip fully assess the floors and any related and relevant factors that could make or had made the floor and immediate area unsafe and provide a full and formal ‘detailed’ Court Compliant English (CPR35) / Scottish Court Compliant Report / risk assessment floor safety report. All Expert Witness reports are written for use in UK or Scottish Courts. Whilst comprehensive for the task they are designed to achieve, they are also written for all parties and courts to quickly make an assessment. They are written with multiple images included in the reports to make it easier to envisage the slip injury locus, removing the need for the slip injury lawyer or accident insurance company (for defendant or claimant) to be on site when Pendulum Testing is conducted reducing the costs of the case. The report will include (but can be removed if required) ‘Options For Improvements’ where we sometimes suggest cost effective solutions to problems. We find the ‘Options’ section is welcomed by businesses and lawyers alike, where businesses are shown affordable solutions and lawyers can demonstrate to the courts that for an economical price many floor slip injury claims might have been avoided.

SHORT FLOOR TESTING REPORTS (Not Court Compliant)  from £69

Post Testing, if you require, FloorSlip can create a short report including images, which will detail the floors tested, an image of the locus tested at each position; comments on the tests at each position and a map of the establishment to make it easier for Health & Safety Managers (and Insurance personnel) to quickly assess the state of your floors.

This type of report are particularly useful: -

a) For larger establishments with multiple floors

b) To quickly recall what floor was tested, the results and the evaluation

c) They provide statements of options of floor safety improvements (where required)

d) Typically include comments about other slip and trip related factors (Lighting, building regulations etc.)

Please note - Prices will vary dependent upon your geographical location and the size of the establishment and related report - please contact FloorSlip to get a fixed price


Maximum of 4 Candidates. Training takes approximately 4-5 hours and and is a mix of theoretical and practical training conducted on site at your premises. Each candidate will have the opportunity to use the equipment completely and real world floor testing with accurate results can be achieved on your own floors if that is your wish saving you approximately £500 in floor testing prices

*Total price dependent upon your geographical location

Additional samples / tests for Contaminants (e.g. oil) £37 per sample

WARNING -  DON’T TRUST SUPPLIERS LEAFLETS ON FLOOR R RATINGS AND PTV VALUES  - THEY ARE OFTEN OVER INFLATED - Get floor samples tested for the Floor Slip Resistance Values before specifying or ordering your floors

* There is an additional cost involved in testing coarse / rough floors as testing of rough surfaces markedly reduces the useful life of the calibrated (and very expensive) rubber sliders used in the test


Ramp testing is highly specialised and expensive and generally not mobile. It is not supplied by FloorSlip but we can put you in touch with reputable organisations offering Ramp Testing. It is typically applicable to manufacturers wishing to introduce a new floor into the market place with DIN Standard 'R Ratings'.

Pendulum testing can achieve a very close similarity to the results achieved in a Ramp Test and are a fraction of the costs of Ramp Testing.

If you wish to know more about Pendulum or Ramp Testing then Contact FloorSlip Please


FloorSlip do not Hire out the Pendulum Floor Testing Equipment for 2 reasons.

(1) The equipment is very delicate and prone to damage through poor handling

(2) Except in the hands of a fully trained floor testing specialist, the results if not correctly arrived at, can cause a business into believing it has better / safer floor than is otherwise so.

FloorSlip can however offer procure British Built (To BS 7976) and Calibrated Floor Testing Equipment  for sale and floor pendulum training courses at cost effective prices


FloorSlip are agents for British Manufactured Floor Pendulum Test Equipment. It is manufactured and calibrated by one of the only leading suppliers of British Pendulums in the UK and as agents we are mostly able to offer prices less than buying direct from the supplier; we can also supply onsite training in  the Floor Pendulum Test Equipment as well (Read More).

Manufactured to British Standards (BS 7976-1 and Calibrated to BS 7976-3), it will literally last a life time and well cared for it should easily last 20+ years. Supplied with a very robust transport case, tools and a 55 and 96 slider, the Pendulum Test Equipment is virtually ready to use out of the box - Note though, do not attempt to use unless trained in the equipment - we suggest taking a supervised Pendulum Test Equipment Training Course, which will be conducted on site at your business.


WARNING - This is NOT a cheap Chinese copy of a Pendulum Test Equipment and should you choose to buy cheap copy you will NOT be able to get it calibrated. The Pendulum Test Equipment is very sensitive and ANNUAL calibration to BS 7976-3 is required to ensure accuracy in slip injury claims

Pendulum  £ 3950 + Delivery* + VAT

Additional Sliders (55 or 96) £97 each

Pendulum Test Equipment Training Only £699 when ordered with a new Floor Test Equipment


*Typical Delivery prices (may vary)

      - From £125 to £200 in UK

      - From £225 to Europe (From UK)

      - From £399 to Rest of the World (From UK)


The problem with most Health and Safety courses is that they are rather ‘dry’ to listen to, generalised and they don’t address your particular business needs if your concern is about floor safety. To change all this, we come to you and conduct an ‘On Site’ Health and safety course which specialises in slip and trips and falls prevention and includes Pendulum Floor Testing and allows you to have a go and conduct a test yourself!

For practicality / effectiveness, the course is generally limited to 4 attendees and lasts about 4 hours. We recommend selecting persons for the course who can influence change and attitudes like H&S Managers, Owners, Store managers etc is a more sensible approach.

And we think the price we charge is remarkably cheap considering there is FREE pendulum testing included saving you around £450 to 500 (on a limited number of floors). You also save on staff time out, travel expenses, hotels etc by conducting the H&S Course on slip and trips at your site - read more about it at On Site Health and Safety courses in slips and trip and falls
