Proactively Manage Slip Risks with Slip Alert Testing. Don’t wait for accidents to happen; take proactive steps to prevent slips. Slip Alert allows for regular monitoring of slip risk in both wet and dry conditions, making it ideal for domestic and corporate safety.

It measures the coefficient of friction between shoe soles and flooring surfaces, providing readings to assess slipperiness. This versatile device can quantify risk for various types of footwear, from hard-sole shoes to bare feet, and offers detailed reports.

By using Slip Alert, you can gauge the effectiveness of anti-slip coatings and treatments and enhance safety.Contact us for a consultation on safety flooring solutions.

What is the Slip Alert?

You do not need to wait for someone to have a serious accident before taking steps to reduce this risk, regular monitoring of slip risk enables your business to become proactive in slip prevention ideal for both domestic and corporate safety.

The Slip Alert is the perfect tool for this ! It measures the coefficient of friction in both wet and dry conditions. The coefficient of friction is a mathematical term used to describe the effect of dragging one substance (shoe sole material) over another (flooring surface). This coefficient is a measurement of the relative ability of various surfaces to resist the sliding or slipping of the selected material.

The slip alert gives a reading, which determines whether the floor in question is slippery or not and what can be done to render it safe. The below image gives a rough idea of the typical range of readings.

The slip alert is able to quantify risk for both hard-sole shoes as well as for softer soles and bare feet thanks to the exchangeable rubber soles at the bottom of the device.

Through the use of the Slip Alert, we are in turn able to provide a detailed report, quantifying the level of risk when it comes to slips and trips on any surface.

This allows us to give readings before and after the application of our anti slip coatings and treatments, quantifying how much safer the surface has become and detailing it in a report such as the one attached. This particular report shows a decrease from 241 STV ( Slipalert Test Value) when wet, which as can be seen on the graph above as having a high risk of slips, to a value of 144 (STV) for which the risk has decreased drastically.
