Zero Thresholds Undergo Slip Testing to BS 7976-2

Zero Seal Systems Ltd is pleased to report that in recently undertaken independent laboratory Anti-Slip testing, their Modular Thresholds, 6.4mm Low Flat Thresholds and Traction Tread™ thresholds achieved a "low risk" classification to BS 7976-2.

Whilst there is no express requirement to achieve a 36 Pendulum Test Value (PTV) or greater to BS 7976-2 in the conditions of end use, it is a clear requirement of UK Law that floor surfaces must not present risks to health. 

In many legal cases a "low risk" classification (36+ PTV) has been a key point of interest in determining whether a surface is safe or slippery. Test evidence in regards to the slip rating of thresholds is regularly asked for in public transport applications.

The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 state that floors shall be suitable for their purpose, and shall not be slippery so as to expose a person to a risk to their health and safety.

The company is pleased to report that every Zero threshold tested received a "low risk" (lowest possible) classification (36+ PTV) in dry conditions, with the majority of those thresholds tested also receiving this classification in wet conditions.

Testing covered Zero's wide range of Modular Thresholds, 6.4mm high Low Flat Thresholds and their Traction Tread™ thresholds which have various infills to aid grip.

Sales Director Mark Lockley says:
"At Zero we are committed to offering products which are continually tested and proven. This new testing means that Zero thresholds can be specified with confidence, especially in areas of public use".
