Robinia Product Story

Celebrating the rich variation of mother nature, Selva benefits from the continued advances in porcelain design and manufacturing techniques to create an astonishing wood-effect surface. Available in four refined hardwoods, including the whitewashed hues of Betulla and Robinia, and the warmth and richness of Carpine and Salice, Selva has the feel and texture of solid timber. Delivering on authentic wood representation - look closer and you will notice how the wood grain waves its way around each knot, Selva offers an extremely hard wearing and low maintenance surface material and provides all the benefits of state-of-the-art porcelain, making it suitable for both residential and high-traffic commercial projects. Selva comes in two 200 mm wide floorboards, (1200 and 1800 mm lengths) and new to our wood collection an extra large 600 x 1800 mm board. This board can be used to create a simply beautiful wood panelled surface - crying out to be touched. Selva also features a unique decorative option, Mix Mosaic. Robinia is part of our Wood-effect Collection.

Ramp Test Values (DIN 51130)

Finish/StyleR Rating ValueFriction
slip ratingR10

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.
