ANSI A137.1 PDF

If you specify or buy flooring based on a minimum wet dynamic coefficient of friction of 0. Here we tell you why, and how to avoid the situation. The standard, which includes a slip resistance test procedure also known as the AcuTest, is incorporated by reference in the International Building Code , used throughout the United States and in several other countries. The code specifies a minimum wet dynamic coefficient of friction DCOF of 0. The specifier shall determine tiles appropriate for specific project conditions, considering by way of example, but not in limitation:. They state that the possibility of a slip may be affected by:.

If you specify or buy flooring based on a minimum wet dynamic coefficient of friction DCOF of 0. Here we tell you why, and how to avoid the situation. And why should ceramic tile have an advantage or disadvantage over other flooring when setting a safety minimum?

The stated purpose of the Code is to establish minimum requirements. The code requires a minimum wet dynamic coefficient of friction DCOF of 0. That test was not based on scientific slip and fall research either, and the ASTM finally withdrew that test method in It is no longer a current test method and there are, thankfully, no plans to ever resurrect that very poor test method that has been causing slip and fall accidents and billions in ill-advised flooring purchases all over the USA for many years.

Achieving a 0. As such it can provide a useful comparison of surfaces, but does not predict the likelihood a person will or will not slip on a hard surface flooring material. So does a wet DCOF rating of 0. Absolutely not. ANSI A It does not ensure safety. There are much more reliable slip resistance test methods available to ascertain what your real-world slip risk will be.

ANSI A137.1:2019 – Standard Specifications For Ceramic Tile

Ceramics is an ancient art. Dating back to 24, BC—and originally composed of animal fat and bone blended with bone ash and a fine claylike material—ceramics found a true calling as functional pottery in 9, BC. Not too far ahead, ceramic tile graced walls in the days of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. In its recent history, U. Nonetheless, the ceramic tile industry still holds strong—during this period, the industry saw a total consumption of Therefore, the standard specifications for ceramic tile are still essential.
