What to use where

Which Step floor to use where

Our Step non slip flooring collection is divided in 3 ranges:
Surestep (R10), Safestep (R11, R12) and Wetroom floors (Surestep Laguna, Safestep Aqua).

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: high traffic areas like corridors, ramps, coffee corners, washrooms, toilet, crafts class rooms and public rooms.

Safestep (R11 & R12)
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: professional kitchens, light industrial food production, flourist shops, garden centres.

Wetroom (Surestep Laguna, Surestep Balance, 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: shower rooms, spa/pool surroundings, changing rooms, locker rooms.

About slip resistance

Step slip resistance explained

Durable anti slip flooring
A sustainable, lifetime non-slip performance as a result of particles throughout the matrix of the floor covering is the requirement to comply with EN 13845. 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 EN 13845 international slip safety standards.

Ramp test
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 non slip floors that are used in conditions where footwear is the standard.

Barefoot flooring
For products used in barefoot areas, DIN 51097 applies. The testing method is similar to that of 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 application.

The Step range offers unique anti slip flooring solutions up to the highest class in barefoot safety performance. By choosing the right Step floor for the right application one can prevent the potential for accidents caused by slipping significantly.
