Safety. Design. Confidence.

Safety. Design. Confidence.

Our Step safety vinyl collection is unique in many ways. It's a durable floor covering combining outstanding slip resistance (up to R12) with a wide range of design possibilities. The PUR Pearl surface provides superior, long-lasting appearance and performance.

The collection is divided in 3 ranges:
Surestep (R10), Safestep (R11, R12) and Wetroom floors

Surestep
All Surestep floors provide R10 slip resistance, are non-slip particle enhanced and can be applied in all types of general walking areas where an increased slip risk may occur. Typical areas are high traffic areas like corridors, ramps, coffee corners, washrooms, toilet, crafts class rooms and public rooms.

Safestep
Safestep floors are applicable in areas where a higher slip risk is identified when incidental, accidental or continuous active contamination of the floor occurs. In these areas it is simply not possible to prevent spillage, due to the type of work environment. Typical areas are: professional kitchens, light industrial food production, flourist shops, garden centres.

Wetroom (Surestep Laguna, Safestep Aqua)
Wetroom floor coverings are developed for use in continuously wet areas, where water flows frequently and barefoot traffic is the standard, or a combination of barefoot and footwear traffic occurs. Typical areas are; shower rooms, spa/pool surroundings, changing rooms, locker rooms.

Slip resistance explained

Slip resistance explained

A sustainable, lifetime performance as a result of particles throughout the matrix of the product is the requirement to comply with EN13845. This standard specifies the requirements that must be met to ensure durable slip resistance in varying degrees of usage intensity. All Step floors comply with EN13845.

Floors are often evaluated on slip resistance performance by using the R-scale, which is linked to the DIN 51130 standard. Measuring slip resistance on a ramp covered with oil at different angles and thereby resulting in different classes of slip. Step safety flooring is covering the most relevant classes of R10 to R12, in a comprehensive range of products that are used in conditions where footwear is the standard (all Surestep ranges, Safestep R11 & R12).

For products used in barefoot areas, DIN51097 applies. The testing method is similar to that of the DIN 51130, but this time the product is flooded with a ‘soap and water’ solution, a testing method that is more relevant to the barefoot applications. The Step range also offers unique solutions up to the highest class in this barefoot safety performance: Surestep Laguna and Safestep Aqua.

By choosing the right Step floor for the right application one can prevent slipping accidents significantly.

Step & the environment

Step & the environment

With the focus on LCA improvement, the key developments for the new Step collection can be summerised as follows:

● Internal recycling of production waste (until now waste was recycled by an
   external partner)

● Increased recycled content in the backing layer; from 39% to 60%

● Overall improvements by using Step Crystals: a recycled by-product, lower
   energy to produce, resulting in clearer visual and less soiling: therefore less water
   usage for cleaning in use phase.

All other Forbo’s sustainable usp’s remain:

● Better for the Indoorair quality; AgBB compliant and TVOC<250 μg/m3

● Compliant+ to the REACH substances list

● Produced with 100% green electricity

● Water based inks used in printed designs

● Low requirements for cleaning and maintenance, reduced water and
   detergent use

● Forbo Spray method suitable for all R10 products, 100% biodegradable,
   no chlorine, pH neutral

● a 100% recyclable product
