Pendulum Skid Tester

The Pendulum Skid Tester measures the frictional resistance between a rubber slider mounted on the end of a pendulum arm and the test surface. This provides highway engineers with a routine method of checking the resistance of wet and dry surfaces to slipping and skidding, both in the lab and on site

Portable instrument for slip or friction tests on laboratory of pavements, zebra crossings and all types of wet floors or elements

Key uses

  • Testing of new road surface materials under development
  • Testing of pedestrian walkways
  • Traffic accident investigations
  • Designed for laboratory and in situ road surface testing


The SkidTester complies with a wide range of standards: UNE ENV 12633 and UNE-EN 13036-4, EN 1097-8, ASTM E103, BS812:114, NLT 174.
