The UK’s independent authority on slip resistance

Important update regarding Rz value to estimate slip resistance

Recent work investigating the variability of surface roughness measurements was presented at the UKSRG meeting today (6 June 2019).

As a result of this presentation the Group advises that anybody wanting to determine slip resistance defers to the pendulum test. Section 7 of the Guidelines is under review.

Following further investigation we will update this advice.
