Bath and Shower Pendulum Slip Tester

Cooper Technology’s Bath and Shower Pendulum Slip Tester is a development of the Cooper Pendulum Skid Resistance Tester CRT-PENDULUM. Bath and Shower Pendulum Slip Tester is slim, supported by high quality vacuum mounted pads and easy to use in restricted spaces such as baths and shower enclosures. The sturdy vacuum mounted pads hold Bath and Shower Pendulum Slip Tester steady against the wall of a bath tub or shower cubicle, thus producing accurate, reliable and repeatable results.

Bath and Shower Pendulum Slip Tester is based on the Izod principle: a pendulum rotates about a spindle attached to a vertical pillar. At the end of the tubular arm a head of known mass is fitted with a rubber slider. The pendulum is released from a horizontal position so that it strikes the sample surface with a constant velocity. The distance travelled by the head after striking the sample is determined by the friction of the sample surface. A reading of Skid Resistance is obtained.

Bath and Shower Pendulum Slip Tester by Cooper Technology can be easily converted into the original Pendulum Skid Resistance Tester for use on roads and pedestrian surfaces. (Please ask for a Conversion Pack when placing an order)
