Slip Resistance, Grading & Type Testing

Covid 19 Update Read More

We are open for business as usual (although there here is nothing usual about this situation) with our transport company (Brooks Transport) who are designated by the government as critical to the covid response. We are still delivering direct to door or site, (however collections or visits to the warehouse are not possible.) Our IT systems allow us to work from home so our staff are protected. Please Call or Email Us for samples or orders. Our factories are back to full capacity and the supply chain is operating effectively which can be seen here. As a trade supplier we have a minimum requirement of 50m2 for any samples and supplies. Please call 01666 504015 if you require less. For Government advice please click here. Even with these steps we have made, we must pull together, support one another, and get through this as a group, a family, and feel proud to say to our wider community we are critical to the Covid-19 response, and we will support it for as long as we are able. Stay safe, stay well, look after yourself, and each other.

Slip Resistance, Grading & Type Testing

In conjunction with Bona we have developed the highest slip resistant lacquered wood flooring in the UK market. 42 PTV in wet conditions, this is a factory finished product that will have a longer life than any on site application.

The finish has been used in a large number of restaurants and hotels and you can get a copy of the certificate to give to any local authority planning officer. You can be sure that this will meet their requirements and pass any extra stringent building regulations they may apply.

You will find most local authorities now will require the highest slip resistant possible and they have a requirement of a PTV value of 40 in the wet. Health and safety is now a major issue in any commercial environment and we have the highest PTV value in the wet rating on our wood floors.

Please download our PDF showing test results for slip resistance on lacquered flooring here.

For more information on grading and type testing please see our technical centre on type testing here.

There are other slip resistance flooring certificates for our various finished in the links below as we continually develop the latest finishes:
