A Pendulum Test Value (PTV) rating is the only slip resistance rating that is recognised in a UK court of law, which is why there is so much emphasis on supplying accurate PTV values for ranges that are specified for commercial tiling applications. A higher or lower rating makes a fundamental difference to the liability of the architect or specifier designing the project.
We have our own Pendulum tester that we keep in laboratory conditions at our Watford showroom so we can provide an accurate PTV rating for any tile on any specification.
To further assist our clients, we also offer an on-site service where we can bring the equipment to site post installation. With this service it’s possible for our clients to determine why tiles may not be achieving their maximum slip resistance due to external influences such as cleaning regimes or contaminants.
