Non-slip Floor Tiles: Preventing Slips and Falls
What is the slip resistance of ceramic floor tile?
Floor tile slip resistance refers to a measurement of the friction created between the soles of your shoes and the floor surface. A surface with low slip resistance is more prone to cause potential slips and falls, while a surface with high slip resistance is safer. The slip resistance of floor tile is measured using specific tests and the results are used to determine whether a surface meets established safety standards.
Non-slip Floor Tile
Exagres believes that safety is essential and should certainly be considered when choosing the material for a floor,whether inside a public building, outside a residential property, on terraces, in swimming pools or in wet or often slippery spaces. We therefore seek to guarantee the safety of anyone who walks across them.
Depending on the method used to assess the slip resistance of the flooring material (barefoot method, footwear method or pendulum method), one set of parameters or another has to be met. This table contains the recommendations offered by Exagres for paving outdoor spaces, swimming pools and floors that regularly come into contact with water.
