When choosing floor tiles for your commercial premises, aesthetic qualities such as style and colour are often a primary consideration. However, there are other, more technical considerations that can be even more important in ensuring a chosen tile is right for the area it is covering.
Every tile range we offer is assigned a rating based on its resistance to slips. Knowing and understanding these ratings empowers our customers to choose the best tile for their individual project. From highly slip-resistant coverings for spaces such as wet rooms, showers or pools to more moderately resistant tiling for areas such as lounges, hallways and matted bathrooms.
A tiles resistance to slips is obtained through careful and highly accurate measuring through the use of testing which recreates the action of both shod and bare feet and measures the resistance when striking the tile.
At Moda Ceramics, our ratings ensure accurate compliance, correct labelling and ultimately; the ability to safely review every tile and every range we offer.
The HSE sets out a range of compliance needs for floors in commercial premises that may become wet. So choosing to tile with the right slip resistance is important to demonstrate a policy of taking steps to keep people safe. Thanks to our ability to provide that important information right when it is needed, we can save you valuable time and resources.
Our ratings help our clients to make sure their chosen floor coverings don’t just look their very best but are also perfectly suited to the spaces they are used in, whatever the risk of slips, trips and falls.
