This standard BS 7941-2:2000 Methods for measuring the skid resistance of pavement surfaces is classified in these ICS categories:
- 93.080.20 Road construction materials
- 17.040.20 Properties of surfaces
This British Standard describes a method for determining the skid resistance of a surface using the GripTester continuous reading braked wheel fixed slip device.
The method is applicable to the following:
- highways: surfacings;
- highways: horizontal signs;
- airport runways;
- flight decks;
- pedestrian precincts;
- test panels of surfaces intended for any of the above.
The method is for measurement of skid resistance along a continuous surface on external paved surfaces or indoors. Test speeds can vary from 5 km/h to 130 km/h depending on the application. The measured values can be affected by the test speed.
