Non-slip tiles for optimum surefootness

Jasba offers non-slip tiles with Secura coating – for applications in dry and wet barefoot areas such as in private and public wellness areas, showers and hallways as well as in schools and kindergartens.
Jasba non-slip tiles with R 10/B feature Secura non-slip, colour-fast surface. Thanks to their colour co-ordination with the wall and floor tiles, Jasba Secura tiles are barely distinguishable from their smooth counterparts. With the result that the harmony of a perfect room creation is maintained.



Further classification of tiles with a non-skid surface for application in wet barefoot areas (BGI/GUV-I8527)

According to the different dangers of slipping the individual areas are classified in the categories A, B and C; the requirements regarding the non-skid quality increase from A-C. The following schedule shows minimum slope angles for different areas which are to be attained by the floor covering according to DIN 51097; the list of the wet barefoot areas is not yet exhausted.
Group Minimum
A 12° Barefoot walkways (mainly dry), single and group changing rooms, pool floors in non-swimmer areas if the water depth is more than 80 cm in the total area, sauna and relaxation areas (largely dry)
B 18° Barefoot areas, but not classified under A, showers, disinfectant spray systems areas, pool surrounds, pool floors in non-swimmer areas if water depth is less than 80 cm in partial areas, pool floors in nonswimmer areas of tidal pools, raising floor levels, kiddies pools, ladders and steps outside the pool area, walk areas on diving platforms and diving boards, but not classified under C, sauna and relaxation areas, but not classified under A
C 24° Ladders and steps leading into the water, access areas to diving facilities and water slides, diving platform and diving board surfaces reserved for divers (the non-slip surface of diving platforms and diving boards must include the front edge gripped by divers’ hands and toes), walkthrough pools, sloped pool surrounds

Definition of the valuation groups for non-slip material for use in working areas and rooms with increased slip risk.

The range of application of the aforementioned tiles refers to working areas and rooms, whose floor coverings, depending on the utilisation, may come into contact with substances which increase the risk of slippage.
The average slope angle at which slippage occurs is determined by the to “Schiefe Ebene” method according to the standard on DIN 51130 (“inclined plane”), and is governed by classification into a particular group.
The following table is an extract of the average slope angles corresponding to the particular groups.
Mean value of slope angles Group
from 6° to 10° R 9
11° to 19° R 10
