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.

The FSC 2000 print measures the frictional resistance of a floor surface using three standard sliders. The test is conducted in both dry and wet conditions, using the three standard sliders (simulating shoe soles) made of rubber, plastic, and leather respectively.

The concrete patterns created by GIAN texture mats are tested with the FSC 2000 print van TÜV Rheinland.

DIN 51130 R-rating, incline test
The DIN 51130 R-standard (slope test with test subjects) is a static testing method that was developed in the 1970s and is still widely used.

DIN 51130 R-rating, incline test
During this test setup, which is only conducted in a laboratory, the slope becomes progressively steeper. The steeper the slope at which sliding initiates, the higher the R-value.
