Footwear Testing

SATRA has a unique position in the footwear industry with unrivaled experience in footwear research and development and footwear testing.

Our footwear laboratories house the most comprehensive range of footwear tests and footwear test equipment, and SATRA maintains the largest database of footwear test results in the world.

SATRA offers expert guidance through the General Product Safety Directive, national, European and international directives, standards and test methods, as well as developing its own performance guidelines and footwear test methods which are recognized and valued throughout the footwear industry. SATRA is acknowledged as the leading authority on most aspects of footwear testing, including durability testing and slip testing. The SATRA footwear research and testing team has been at the forefront of slip testing and footwear slip resistance properties for over 30 years. The SATRA test method SATRA TM144 has been recognized and adopted in the European EN 13287 standard and the US F2913-11 standard.
