PTS have modified one of our two Coopers wheel trackers to offer the Scuffing test in accordance with TRL 176 Appendix G, this offers us the chance to asses high friction surfacing for both development needs and quality control. We can also perform the erosion index, visual observations, skid resistance before and after scuffing as well as texture depths.

If you have any queries or requests for tests in this particular field then contact the lab and we will be happy to help.


Paved Surfaces

 

Our team of experienced technicians and engineers have the ability to perform on site surveys that can visually asses the defects seen on a surface dressing site in accordance with BS EN 12272-2:2003 and slurry surfacing to BS EN 12274-8:2005. Another survey we can carry out is the Visual Assessment of Thin Surfacing to our very own documented in-house method C171, Issue 4, 11/07/14.

We can also perform tests that give an indication of the surfaces characteristics, the pendulum skid tester can be used on pavements and footways and provides an indication on how much slip/skid resistance the surface under test has, this is useful in determining how accidents have been caused and in prevention of accidents, the test is carried out in accordance with BS EN 13036-4:2003 & BS 7976-2:2013. We can also asses the texture depth to show compliance with a materials performance criteria in accordance with t he latest specification and methodology laid out in BS EN 13036-1:2010.

If you have any queries or requests for tests in this particular field then contact the lab and we will be happy to help.
