Testing and Accreditation
DeckWright anti-slip inserts have been independently tested and approved by the Health and Safety Laboratory in Buxton, in accordance with British Standard BS7976: 2002. The manufacturing process has also been independently QA audited and is compliant with ISO 9001:2016.
Deckwright inserts were awarded a PTV score of 71. Any PTV score above 36 is considered to be of “low slip potential.” The PTV test is designed to replicate a pedestrian heel strike, the point at which most slips occur. When a pedestrian heel strikes a wet floor a fluid film is created between them which subsequently causes someone to slip.
