How does it work?
Powered by a standard 9v battery, you just switch it on and it's ready to go. It works by measuring the slip resistance factor - easy to understand instructions mean you can start using it straightaway.
We designed it for maximum convenience, and the audible signal and digital readout gives you the slip resistance figure at a glance.
You can then easily measure this against the various workplace regulations. In particular the readings have been designed to directly correlate with the number values of the BS5395 Part 1 1977 Guide to Slip Resistance.
- • Solid state technology - no moving parts
- Unit dimensions (HxWxL)
- Unit weight ….gms
- Audible signal of completed test
- Digital display including ambient temperature and time
- Automatic data hold function
- Auto calibration / zero
- Takes single 9v battery
- Low battery indication
These state, for example, that anything over 0.75 is regarded as suitable for high risk areas; anywhere between 0.40 and 0.75 is allowable for normal use. Below 0.40, and you're looking at a potential safety problem.
