Skid Testing

We can carry out skid testing to check compliance with BS EN 13036-4:2011 which explains how to test skid resistance on roads and airfields.

BOT-3000E Testing

We also offer slip resistance / friction testing using the BOT–3000E Tribometer. Although this is mostly required for checking slip standards in the United States of America to the requirements of ANSI A137.1 and A326.3. We mainly use the BOT-3000E to carry out monitoring of floor friction for AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robots).

The BOT is not used by us for slip testing in the United Kingdom as the ‘Pendulum’ method is preferred.
