SHADE TONE VARIANCE
What does V1, V2, V3 & V4 mean?
Shade, texture and tone can vary from piece to piece within a single tile production run. V1 shade tone variation has little or no change from piece to piece where as a V4 might have a substantial variety of shade, texture and tone variation.
V1 = Uniform Appearance
V2 = Slight Variation
V3 = Moderate Variation
V4 = Substantial Variation
The slip resistance values (RSV) mentioned for some of the ranges in this catalogue are all factory gate values (based on supplied tiles) and categorised using the Ramp Test (DIN51130) 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. The operator is shod with rubber-soled boots and the lubricant used is engine oil (10W30).
The shod test results are quoted as an R value, which relates to the ramp angle as follows:
R9 = (minimal friction) 6 to 10°
R10 = (normal friction) 10 to 19°
R11 = (good friction) 19 to 27°
R12 = (high friction) 27 to 35°
R13 = (very high friction) >35
The EU Ecolabel helps you identify products and services that have a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle, from the extraction of raw material through to production, use and disposal. Recognised throughout Europe, EU Ecolabel is a voluntary label promoting environmental excellence which can be trusted.
The EU Ecolabel is awarded according to ecological criteria. It is agreed on by experts, industry, consumer organisations and environmental NGOs and verified by independent third parties.
All porcelain tiles within this collection have been awarded the EU Ecolabel.
Is the new voluntary environment label according to ISO 14021
