Slip Test Results


Gripsure non-slip decking has been independently tested using the pendulum test (the operation and calibration of which are described in BS7976:2002 parts 1 and 3) operated to the United Kingdom Slip Resistance Group (UKSRG). 

All Gripsure® products exceed both the wet and dry non-slip standards as set out by UK Slip Resistance Guidelines. A value of 65 out of 100 is required for any non-slip surface to be classed as having an extremely low risk of slipping, of which all Gripsure decking also achieves.

The Health and Safety Executive gives 3 categories of risk for PTV scores to be measured against:
 
PTV Value Slip Potential

0-24

High risk of slipping

25-35

Medium risk of slipping

36 +

Low risk of slipping
