Slip Resistant Floors

Vinyl flooring with high slip resistance is essential in many environments, particularly those where there is a risk of slips, trips, and falls. Slip-resistant vinyl flooring is designed to provide a safe and secure surface that reduces the risk of accidents and injuries, making it an important consideration for both residential and commercial applications.

DIN 51130

There are a number of different standards and norms that are used to determine the slip resistance of vinyl flooring, including the DIN 51130 standard, which is a German standard that sets out a test method for measuring the slip resistance of flooring materials. The test is designed to simulate the conditions that people are likely to encounter in real-world situations, such as wet or oily surfaces. 

The DIN 51130 standard classifies flooring materials into different categories based on their slip resistance, with higher levels indicating greater slip resistance. At Signal Plus we offer slip resistant vinyl floor covering with ratings between R10 is considered to be suitable for use in areas with moderate slip risk, while a material that achieves a rating of R13 is suitable for use in areas with high slip risk.
