SEAT S.A. Westfield Shopping Centre Slip Testing – Central London
Along with the recent work we have done for Westfield Shopping Centre, they asked us to carry out a slip potential assessment. Our slip testing service is compromised of both wet and dry slip resistance evaluations on the surfaces we had recently coated. The tests are carried out using a specialist pendulum that records the results and are compiled into a specially designed report which includes a summary of results along with the potential of slipping according to the Required Pedestrian Pendulum Test Value.
All of our surfaces had both a wet and dry result of low potential for slip. Other surfaces on-site that Intercity Contractors had not coated but had tested for comparison resulted as high and moderate potentials for slip. This could be due to the surfaces being worn over time or potential unsuitable coatings being used.
