Staco receives certificate for slip resistance class 13
May 2020 - Since February this year, Staco Production have received the certification from IFA for R13 for the SP grate type 34x38 /… x3 mm S4.
In 1962, Staco was the first grating manufacturer to produce welded grating.
In contrast to the production of press gratings, the twisted cross bars are fully welded to the supporting bars at each cross node. This is completed under great pressure during the welding press process.
In order to improve the slip resistance of the newly developed SP grates, the so-called "Serrated" surface was produced for the first time in 1973 by punching out the support rods.
The slip resistance of a floor covering is extremely important, for example, in the industrial sector. Many of the reported accidents at work were caused by stumbling, falling or slipping. In work areas where you work with lubricating substances or where the floor can possibly get wet, not only proper footwear is necessary, but also a non-slip floor covering. Staco welding press gratings are ideal for this type of stress.
The Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the German Social Accident Insurance (IFA) conducts DGUV-Tests. Also included in these tests are floor coverings which in order to certify the intended use and their assessment group. The assessment group is determined by a test procedure by placing the floor covering to be tested on a test stand, which is then raised further and further at the rear edge until the tester slips or feels unsafe. The angle of inclination achieved is measured and the determined number of degrees leads to the division into the evaluation group.
R 9 6-10 °
R 10 > 10-19 °
R 11 > 19-27 °
R 12 > 27-35 °
R 13 > 35 °
Staco welding press gratings have a slip resistance class of 10 without a serrated surface. Since February this year, Staco Production have received the certification from IFA for R13 for the SP grate type 34x38 /… x3 mm S4.
This certificate is a great pleasure and enrichment not only for the Staco Group, but also for our customers and business partners. Many projects in the industrial sector require certified flooring for their special requirements. Staco SP gratings not only offer the highest level of safety, but also high durability and aesthetics.
