SLIPPERINESS (Coefficient of Friction)

SLIPPERINESS (Coefficient of Friction)

OEFFICIENT OF FRICTION (SLIPPERINESS)
Instruments designed for determining Slipperiness (Coefficient of Friction)

PENDULUM SLIPPERINESS METERING (WESSEX)
Instrument for the determination of the frictional resistance. The Pendulum is based on the Izod principle: a pendulum consisting of a tubular arm rotates about a spindle attached to a vertical pillar. At the end of the tubular arm a head of constant mass is fitted with a rubber slider. The pendulum is released from a horizontal position so that it strikes the sample surface with a constant velocity. The distance travelled by the head after striking the sample is determined by the friction of the sample surface.

SLIPPERINESS METERING PLATFORM MODEL
To determine the dynamic critical angle in conformity with ISO 10545-17 annex C and DIN-51130 standards (R Value). The equipment consists of a painted steel framework with one zincplated platform with adjustable angle to accomodate the panel of 100x50cm ceramic floor tiles. Special shoes are impregnated with oil and the operative wearing a safety belt provided walks back and forth on the platform which is being inclined at the rate of 1° per second, until slipping occurs (the critical angle of slipperiness)

TORTUS 3
The Tortus 3 directly measures the dynamic co-efficient of friction as it traverses a surface or flooring material to be used by pedestrians. The measurements recorded are date/time stamped and can be downloaded as data files onto a USB memory stick. The unit can be mains or battery operated. The Tortus 3 has been developed from units originally designed by the British Ceramic Research Association (Ceram Research / Lucideon).

Really friendly family business would highly recommend, great products and advice and excellent after sales service. 3 years on and our hot tub is still one of the best things we've bought. We're now investing in a heat pump, which they are now supplying and installing.

Over the previous years we have had 3 hot tubs off this company updating each time and on each occasion they offered outstanding service from initial enquiry to installation but what makes this company stand out is the levels of aftercare that they provide including servicing and general maintenance. I had Steve one of the technicians come round to complete some work and he was a genuine credit to the company arriving on time,extremely polite and nothing was too much trouble. Making the right decision as to who to buy from is never easy but it is the aftercare once bought that should be the deciding factor and E.J Payne are quite simply the best and we have put our confidence in them over the years and they have ALWAYS exceeded our expectations. Thank you STEVE you are an ambassador to the company.

We purchased an Arctic Spa hot tub from Ricky over 3 years ago, following a lovely visit to the showroom. We were very impressed by the knowledge and advice given and found Ricky and the team very trustworthy. The installation by the team was very professional and friendly, everything to do with the maintenance and chemicals was explained thoroughly. We have since purchased spa chemicals and accessories from them and found them to be very reasonable. On the odd occasion we have had to contact Ricky and the team for advice, we have always found them to be very helpful and have even visited to offer advice and assistance when needed. It goes without saying that their customer service is second to none and I have no problem recommending them and have done on many occasions. Thank you. Jason

Purchased a second hand hot tub off e Bay and needed some chemicals and advice on first usage. Googled locally and so glad e. J Payne came up. From the moment I walked in I was greated with a freindly welcome and explained my requirements. The advice given was very helpful and no pushy sales to sell me stuff I didn't need. Will be returning and booking a service when ready. 10/10
