The shoe and heel materials slip resistance tester has been developed following extensive biomechanical studies and is representative of conditions encountered during walking when slip is most likely to occur.
A normal walking step commences with heel strike and ends as the toe is lifted from the ground. Slip is most likely to occur shortly after heel strike and just before toe lift when half body weight is being applied. The equipment measures the slip resistance between the sole of the shoe/boot and the floor.
Qinsun supplies a standard, calibrated, floor surface with each machine. Other surfaces can be used with the machine and are available to order. Providing it can be attached to the machine, almost any floor surface can be used with the Qinsun machine.
The unique design of the equipment allows the slip resistance of footwear to be measured against a standard surface floor surface or alternatively flooring materials can be measured against standard sole materials.
Without a standard for your workplace, employees are left to determine the appropriate slip-resistant shoe for their work environment-which isn't always as easy as it seems.
Many shoes are labeled as "slip-resistant" but are often not effective enough for chefs, nurses, and other professionals that are exposed to slippery floors. The best way to make an informed decision about slip-resistant shoes is to compare your potential choice of shoes to standardized test procedures.
Just lift the heel, and the toes are not off the ground at the moment, half of your body weight all the pressure on the toes, then the most likely to slip. The test equipment on shoes / sole and slip resistance between the floors.
Equipment supplied standard, calibrated ground. Other types of ground can also be used in conjunction with the tester, but must be ordered separately.
As long as it can be connected to the tester, almost all of the ground can be used on the shoes limited slip tester.
The unique design of the tester can be measured against the standard ground shoes slip resistance, sole materials can also be measured against a standard anti-skid flooring material.
The tester is equipped with a special design of the control and data acquisition system, to provide users with the friction coefficient of each specimen.
To obtain this result by closely controlling the various forces involved in the test, these forces include the speed of movement provided by the variable speed motor.
In order to ensure the strength and speed of movement during the test to maintain the required, the controller and the tester provides a unique circuit design.
