Certification for Easy Tek Dek
How do you measure slip resistance?
The classification and R-value (slip reistance value) are linked to the German DIN 51097 and DIN 51130 standardisations. They measure the slip resistance with an inclination test, in order to assess the slip resistance (grip) of the surface.
It works like this: a test person walks over an inclining platform (slope) where the flooring material has been applied to. The floor is lubricated with oil and during the test the inclination of the platform will be increased step by step. As soon as the test person starts to feel uncomfortable and the floor therefore offers insufficient slip resistance, the angle of inclination of the floor (the R-value) is determined.
