Sample Requirements

  • Five (5) whole tiles, if tiles smaller than 150 x 150 mm contact us to confirm requirements
  • For flooring products that are either coating system (paint epoxy, etc) or a sheet type product (vinyl, rubber, carpet, etc) then (1) specimen being a minimum size of approximately 1000 x 500mm is required.
  • A ‘mounting and grouting’ fee of $150 applies for any small tile samples (50mm x 50mm or less) supplied unmounted, such as unmounted mosaic tiles

All flooring products shall be supplied as they would be on a finished pedestrian surface. Therefore, samples must be fully cured, sealed, polished etc. Any flooring product that consists of small discrete elements such as mosaic tiles (50x50mm) are required to be mounted and grouted to a suitable substrate.

Dry Floor Friction Test

Slip resistance classification of new pedestrian surface according to Appendix B

Dry Floor Friction Test Method – ‘D’ Rating  

Sample Requirements

Test samples shall be such that they provide a cumulative minimum test path of 800mm.

If the samples consist of small tiles (50mm x 500mm or less), they shall be fixed to a suitable surface, spaced, and grouted to manufactures specifications as they would be on a finished pedestrian surface.
