Morella Product Story

Corteccia displays the intricate graining, texture and knotting of genuinely aged timber and is suitable for internal and external projects. A solid wood-effect porcelain tile, Corteccia is available in two large floorboards in Natural, Grip and Structured finishes and provides excellent aesthetics combined with the superior technical performance of porcelain. The 300 x 1200 mm floorboard has a 20 mm thickness, and with its Grip finish is ideal for outdoor living areas and low-maintenance landscaping. These large floorboards work well within open living spaces, while a Chevron option completes the extensive laying possibilities. With five rustic colours, Corteccia is ideal for flooring and wall panelling and projects where underfloor heating or a low maintenance, sustainable hardwood is required. Morella is part of our Wood-effect Collection.

Ramp Test Values (DIN 51130)

Finish/StyleR Rating ValueFriction

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
R13Very high

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