DIN51130:2014 -SLIP RESISTANCE STANDARD

The anti-slip qualities of floor coverings are classified using DIN 51130. This implies that anti-slip flooring, workplace matting, and anti-fatigue matting all fulfil the required slip resistance standards.

This standard specifies a technique for determining and classifying anti-slip qualities of floor coverings intended for use in workrooms and work-related locations with slip hazards that can be used as a suitability test.

HOW DOES THE TEST WORK?

A test person wearing test shoes goes forward and backwards in an upright position over the floor covering to be evaluated, increasing the slope from horizontal to acceptance angle. The degree of anti-slip is determined by the average acceptance angle attained. The acceptance angle is calculated on floor coverings which have been lubricated.

ANTI-SLIP PROPERTIES

The MT

52 is DIN51130:2014 approved. It has a R10 rating, making it ideal for floors in workrooms and other locations where there is a higher danger of slipping due largely to grease, oil, water, leftovers, dust, flour, plant clippings, and other contaminants.

Portwest have three styles certified to this standard: MT50, MT51, MT52
