Brown Product Story

Offering a colour palette of six complementary shades, Effetto is a highly functional addition to our Stone Collection. As well as working beautifully when used together, each colourway displays the delicate inclusions typical of natural stone and is available in four sizes including a 20 mm format for external application. Opening up even more possibilities are the Natural, Honed, Grip and Structured finishes, each conveying its own subtle nuances, yet all delivering the exceptional durability and superior technical performance of porcelain. Finally, Effetto can be specified for stand-alone objects and monolithic furniture, enabling designers to create beautifully cohesive and exciting schemes. Brown is part of our Stone-effect Collection.

Ramp Test Values (DIN 51130)

Finish/StyleR Rating ValueFriction
Natural, StructuredR10

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.
