Pendulum Skid Tester

Pendulum Skid Resistance Tester

Today, we have received our brand new and calibrated Skid Resistance Tester, an established device to measure friction properties of various surface.

This is part of the Skyltfonden-financed project to establish friction data on wood-rubber interactions, with a focus on angle of interaction (vs wood fibre direction).

To test our skills and new device, we ran a series of measurement on a typical Swedish varnished oak flooring. Check the results below. Conditions were dry.
