New Surtronic Duo with slip assessment tool makes light work of flooring assessments

07 January 2016

Taylor Hobson’s Surtronic Duo is widely used in conjunction with the HSE Slip Assessment Tool (SAT), software for the assessment of slipping accident risk

Ideally suited to flooring measurements due to its ‘remote control’ operation, the new Surtronic Duo uses familiar smartphone technology for improved performance:

The Surtronic Duo uses the latest Bluetooth technology for quick, reliable communication between the measurement head and its remote control - operators can place the measurement head on the flooring section to be measured and take measurements from a distance at the press of a button.

The look of the Surtronic Duo has also changed – the traditional curved shape of the Duo (which earned it’s nickname of ‘Kenny’ in the field) has been replaced with a much sleeker and more robust rubberised moulding.  Users have the advantage of an intuitive 3-button menu and a crisp 6cm colour LCD screen with graphical display.

The Surtronic Duo uses the latest rechargeable battery technology and incorporates a USB mini port for fast charging.  The unit is then stored in a handy canvas bag ready for use at a moment’s notice.

Use of the hand-held Surtronic Duo requires minimal training – users can quickly make surface finish measurements around the flooring assessment area.  These readings are then used in conjunction with the HSE SAT (Slip Assessment Tool) software to give a clear indication of the potential for slip, allowing H&S personnel to make an objective decision about the safety of their flooring.
