Caramello Product Story

Alongside tone and surface texture, colour is the central design element when using concrete as a building material. Calma is a new concrete-effect porcelain tile available in five dusty shades, including a pigmented charcoal. With ten practical sizes including 1.5 x 3 metre slabs, Calma is offered in 6 mm thickness, making it a flexible and adaptable surface for a host of applicational needs. For designers creating custom concrete interiors, Calma is completely waterproof, has anti-microbial properties and is resistant to extreme heat. This makes it the ideal material for countertops and work surfaces, but unlike standard concrete, Calma is practically maintenance free with its resistance to scratches and stains, and no requirement for sealant. Calma's authentic tones and textures make it ideal for contemporary schemes where the beauty of exposed materials is celebrated, combining a robust yet elegant surface with efficient and innovative design. Caramello is part of our Concrete-effect Collection.

Ramp Test Values (DIN 51130)

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.
