“Slip Alert” ™ Floor Slip Testing for UK Businesses and Organisations

Why Slip Testing is Essential for Your Business

In the UK's busiest buildings and spaces, ensuring the safety of your floors is important to your organisation, your customers and visitors. Slips and trips are among the most common causes of accidental injuries in the UK.

The repercussions of a slip and fall can be severe. That's true for people's health and the potential legal fall out. Floor slip testing services are becoming a useful tool in your health and safety support network. Border Floor Ltd offers state-of-the-art Slip Alert™ testing to ensure your floors meet the highest safety standards. We are NEBOSH qualified and we can test your floors throughout the United Kingdom.

The Science Behind Our Testing

Our Slip Alert™ testing aligns with the British Standard BS8204 for slip tests. Our testing kit measures the coefficient of friction (CoF). It's a bit like the experiments you may have done back in secondary school Physics lessons.

The design of this system provides accurate and reliable test results that mirror the physics of a human slip. This ensures that the slip risk of your floors is up to mark, reducing the risk of slip injuries. We believe this to be a superior slip test machine to the standard HSE pendulum slip test set-up.
