Slip Resistance

Slip resistance is a complicated topic worth understanding if you are a property owner, manager or a contributor to the construction process.  Under Australia law, suppliers, designers and installers of floor finishes all carry responsibilities for the provision of safe environments for patrons and employees alike.

Australian Standards SA HB 198:2014 and AS 4586-2013 sets out slip resistance requirements for differing applications however given the broad variety of circumstances, the definitions are far from clear cut.  Factors which influence slip resistance include: tile surface finish, tile format, surface incline, cleaning regimes, foot wear or lack thereof amongst others.

At Ceramic Solutions, we have available a huge range of fit-for-purpose ceramic tiles with slip resistance ratings.  Contact our knowledgeable Sales staff for further assistance.
