SLIP RESISTANCE CLASSIFICATION OF NEW PEDESTRIAN SURFACE MATERIALS
2013 Edition, June 28, 2013
This Standard provides means of classifying pedestrian surfacematerials according to their frictional characteristics whendetermined in accordance with the test methods set out inAppendices A, B, C, D and E. The test methods enablecharacteristics of surface materials to be determined in either wetor dry conditions.
This Standard does not provide for the conditioning of specimensto account for in-service wear.
NOTE: When specifying a particular slip resistanceclassification, specifiers should consider the likely in-servicewear and its effects on slip resistance, taking into account thematerial type, pedestrian and other traffic and environmentalconditions including cleaning, sealing and carpet wear andstretch.
