Equipment Calibration and Parts

Equipment Calibration and Parts

ATTAR offers calibration services for the British Portable Skid Resistance Testers (Pendulum). Calibration is conducted to British Standard BS 7976-3: 2002 +A1: 2013 Pendulum Testers - Part 3: Method of Calibration, as required by AS 4586: 2013 and AS 4663: 2013This calibration process should be carried out at intervals not exceeding two (2) years. 

As a part of the calibration process, any repairs or part replacements are carried whenever they are required to ensure that your Pendulum Tester is operating as it should be and just like new.

ATTAR is NATA accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 for Pendulum Calibration since 2005 and are highly experienced with the calibration of pendulum makes such as Stanley, Munro, Wessex, Cooper, Mastrad and KSS.

ATTAR also has many years of experience and knowledge in servicing, repairing and conducting performance checks and of Tortus Floor Friction Testers (Tortus II and Tortus 3) instruments; however, unlike the pendulum tester, there is no calibration requirement of the Tortus unit per se. To ensure that the Tortus remains in good working order and is operating correctly, we recommend that a unit check with cross reference be performed every two (2) years, whereby the results of the Tortus is compared, over a range of different surfaces. 

The performance check of the Tortus also incorporates checking the run length (distance) and velocity (speed). When required, this will be adjusted to ensure that it meets the requirements of both AS 4586: 2013 and AS 4663: 2013.
