What is a T42 Swing bag test?
The T42.00 Swing bag test is a standardised test created specifically for access flooring installations. The specification for the testing is detailed in the Method of Building performance specification for raised access floors which can be viewed by clicking here.

The image below shows the typical method for carrying out the T42.00 test which is conducted between 24 and 48 hours after the test pedestal has been applied to the surface. The test involves letting a 3kg bag of sand swing at a fixed 1000mm length from a 90 degree angle to hit the top of a fixed pedestal. The pedestal should remain fixed to the substrate.
