Global Product Classification

Independent Slip Testing Services is the global leader in accredited slip resistance measurement and classification of pedestrian surface materials.

Many countries now require minimum slip resistance classifications to meet building and construction code requirements.

If you create, supply or install pedestrian surface materials, an independent, accredited classification is a useful tool providing confidence to all stakeholders the product is performing as specified.
