SlipAlert Results Graph and conversion


SlipAlert delivers an almost instant measure of the slip risk of your floors. The results provide a simple assessment of the level of risk (see graph):

  • low risk (green) - less than 1 in 1 million people will find the floor slippery

  • medium risk (amber) - a level of risk that can be managed

  • high risk (red) - most people will find the floor slippery and the risk of an accident is high

SlipAlert results can easily be converted into either PTV (Pendulum Test Values) or CoF (Coefficient of Friction) using the graph.

SlipAlert Correlation with PTV


Independent tests of SlipAlert on different floor surfaces show a very high correlation (r>0.95with PTV ). The graph below shows measures made in Australia, Europe and the UK on a variety of differnt floors. With high scores for repeatabilty and reproducibility, SlipAlert offers the quickest, easiest and most reliable way to measure PTV. By comparison, when the UKSRG tested 5 different Pendulum machines, they could only achieve +/- 5 points from 4 out of the 5 (the fifth set of results being discarded).
