Biscotto Product Story
Edge is an exciting new concrete effect range featuring ten cool shades. Large formats, in 1200 x 2400 mm sizes, create minimal grout lines, a look synonymous with natural concrete. As a contemporary backdrop, Edge features a soft concrete finish and can be specified for use on floors, walls and countertops, adding to the illusion of a single uninterrupted surface. Supplied with Natural, Grip and Structured finishes, Edge is suitable for use throughout a development, including high-traffic areas, kitchens and wet rooms. A 20 mm Grip option also makes it ideal for alfresco living and rooftop bars. With nine practical sizes, Edge fits perfectly with today’s trend for exposed building materials and pared-down interiors. Biscotto is part of our Concrete-effect Collection.

Shade Tone Variance
Biscotto – Structured has been classified:
Understanding Shade Tone Variance
Shade, texture and tone can vary from piece to piece within a single tile production run. V1 shade tone variation has little or no change from piece to piece where a V4 might have a substantial variety of shade, texture and tone variation.
Ramp Test Values (DIN 51130)
|Finish/Style||R Rating Value||Friction|
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 Value||Friction|
See the Health and Safety Executives website for more information regarding the Ramp Test procedure. Ramp Test Certificate available on request.
