The Australian Standard for Slip Resistance.
AS 4586-2013 - Slip ratings
AS 4586-2013 is the joint Australian / New Zealand standard which provides slip resistance ratings for pedestrian floor surface materials. It provides users and specifiers of pedestrian surface materials (architects, engineers, facility managers, manufacturers, etc.) with the means to classify such surfaces according to their pedestrian slip resistance. The slip resistance recommendations of ‘wet locations’ is presented below as outlined by the Australian Standards handbook HB198:2014.
The wet pendulum slip rating classifies the slip rating of surfaces prone to water contamination. The surface is tested using a Pendulum Friction Tester. Results are based on a minimum of five samples tested. The average rating is used for the slip rating and defined as the Slip Resistance Value (SRV).
SWISS GriP NonSlip - Slip Resistance Certifications
SWISS GriP NonSlip coatings have been specifically developed to eliminate slipping incidents. At the same time, our coatings are easy to keep clean, due to our water and dirt repellent technology. SWISS GriP is the only worldwide certified non-slip solution, with exceptional results in every test. Therefore, we can make every surface slip-free and safe. Unlike etching, SWISS GriP does not damage the surface it is applied on and can be easily renewed if necesarry.
