Make sure you have the correct laminate for its purpose, all anti slip laminates will have a slip ratings with an 'R' value and PTV result to standard ‘BS7976-2’.

R Rating values are given their values from testing in accordance with DIN 51130 and DIN 51097 as shown in the tables below.

If you are not given a copy of the data sheet with your job or your sign company/printer is unable to supply you with one then you will not be covered if a member of public has an accident on any floor graphics you have supplied or installed.

R ratings can be provided for forensic information on slip injury cases.

If you require us to quote on any floor graphics, please state:

  • The floor graphics location.
  • Is the area of the floor graphic susceptible to getting wet from rain or other liquids.
  • What is the footfall of traffic like of that area.
  • Will the floor graphic be placed internally or externally.
  • What is the existing state of floor where the floor vinyl to be placed.

We offer different grades of floor graphics suitable for short term internal use to long term external use, these ratings vary from R10 to R13.

We are happy to supply a copy of a data sheet with every anti slip floor graphic we produce.
