Nickel Product Story

Through a delicate combination of cement and clay, Futura presents a dusty concrete-effect surface through a calming palette of four earthy shades. These complimentary colours create the perfect backdrop when juxtaposed with accent colour and integrate beautifully when used together within a single development. Six practical sizes, including a 20 mm grip finish, mean that Futura helps with continuity when laid through adjoining living areas and is ideal for projects that span both internal and external spaces. Unique to Futura, and available for the first time as part of a 'concrete' range, is the charming assortment of artistic and geometric decorative tiles. 'Shape' and 'Style' in particular, provide a creative solution for differentiating living areas, while 'Craft' and 'Brick' are ideal for a bespoke, hand-finished surface. Nickel is part of our Concrete-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.
