The slipperiness of a floor surface is expressed in the so-called coefficient of friction (µ). The frictional resistance of a floor can only be measured in practice using testing equipment.
In collaboration with KIWA and TÜV Rheinland, Compañero conducted friction tests on precast concrete elements with a GIAN concrete imprint. These tests have shown that all precast concrete elements with a GIAN concrete imprint significantly exceed the required standards.
Depending on the application, the appropriate anti-slip value can be selected, ranging from normal anti-slip for indoor use to very high anti-slip for wet areas and outdoor spaces.
Detailed information about the testing method is available in the following documentation:
