Laboratory Testing Services

The laboratory testing of flooring materials to support our clients from the UK construction, property, legal and facility management sectors has been a core component of our test portfolio since we were first established. We provide our customers with rapid access to results to support their accurate, timely decision making and avoid costly mistakes.

The testing of floor materials to determine their frictional properties and suitability for use is an important part of our day-to-day activities. Our service is designed to help specify floor materials for new and refurbished premises, assess the suitability of existing floor materials for changes in use and to provide vital management information to identify the ways in which various factors interact and thereby potentially affect the safety of the floor surface. Customers who regularly use this service include:

  • Designers, architects and flooring specifiers
  • Flooring manufacturers
  • Flooring contractors, suppliers and distributors
  • Forensic architects and engineers
  • Property owners, landlords and employers

Apart from the potential costs arising from a civil action, incorrect choice or maintenance of a walking surface can have significant cost implications for owners and operators. These arise both as direct costs, such as the expense of replacing the surface, and also as indirect costs arising from disruption, damage to an organisation's image, loss of trade and inefficiencies in working activities. We have expertise in assessing a wide range of flooring materials, including:

  • Ceramic
  • Granite
  • Marble
  • Clay Pavers
  • Cement
  • Resin floor finishes
  • Glass
  • Plastics
  • Porcelain
  • Slate
  • Natural stone
  • Concrete paving blocks and flags
  • Timber and wooden decking surfaces
  • PVC and other flexible materials
  • Metals, galvanised chequer plate
