Arabescato Product Story

Inspired by some of the world’s most elegant marbles including Arabescato, Crema Marfil and Travertine, Stone Sense is a breathtaking collection that delivers the intricacies of Italian marble in a functional and highly versatile form. Incredible durability is provided within a non-slip, scratch-resistant surface, making Stone Sense ideal for installation in residential or public spaces, even where heavy traffic is expected. Available in eleven sizes from 300 x 600 mm to monumental 1500 x 3000 mm slabs, this innovative material can be laid on both floors and walls to create an expansive, continuous marble surface. It is also the perfect complement to other materials such as stone, wood and concrete. Stone Sense utilises the latest compaction technology, a concept that combines light weight with technical performance, to produce a 6 mm thickness porcelain tile that is unparalleled in terms of its seamless application. For fabrication opportunities such as hidden doors, sliding walls, countertops, vanity units and furniture, Stone Sense brings its own unique style, even inspiring designers to create one-off pieces of art. Adding to its sense of wonder, Stone Sense also features imposing Bookmatched pieces, featuring the dramatic veining of Arabescato, Venato and Statuario marble. Each Bookmatched pair is available in a highly Polished or Natural finish, and is an effective option for elegant commercial projects or high-end residential developments. Arabescato is part of our Marble-effect Collection.

Ramp Test Values (DIN 51130)

Finish/StyleR Rating ValueFriction
NaturalR9

Understanding Ramp Test Data

DIN Standard Ramp Testing (DIN 51130) is an alternative to Pendulum Testing and generally categorised as an 'off-site' activity because of the size and complexity of the equipment required to carry out the test. The Slip Resistance Values (RSV) are factory gate values (based on supplied tiles) and categorised using the Ramp Test (DIN 51130) method which is commonly used by European factories. In this method, a lubricated inclined platform is adjusted to a gradually increasing gradient, and the angle is measured at which a person walking on it slips.

We have deliberately not included the ramp test angles on this page as this information can be confused with the angle that a floor may be safely set to, which is incorrect. The shod test results are quoted as an R Rating value from R9 to R13, which relates to the ramp angle.

R Rating ValueFriction
R9Minimal
R10Normal
R11Good
R12Good
R13Very high

See the Health and Safety Executives website for more information regarding the Ramp Test procedure. Ramp Test Certificate available on request.
