Azur Product Story

Parquet is a contemporary collection of five wood styles, each one characterised by intricate knots and authentic graining. With delicate shades and textures, the appearance of Parquet has been thoughtfully designed for functionality and timeless elegance. The highly durable porcelain surface provides a responsible and environmentally sound flooring solution, with none of the maintenance requirements of real wood. Two sizes allow for a number of creative laying patterns, including an oversized 300 x 2400 mm plank which is ideal for open-plan living, while a 1200 mm option can be used to recreate the splendor of a herringbone floor. Beautiful and practical, Parquet is available in Natural and Structured finishes making it suitable for both residential and high-traffic commercial projects. With its characterful aesthetic, Parquet has the beauty and technical requirements to meet the growing demand for sustainable wood flooring. Azur is part of our Wood-effect Collection.

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.
