Slip resistance is a balance
A compromise between ease of cleaning and slip resistance is required. Smoother floors may require more frequent cleaning while rougher floors need more aggressive cleaning. Minimising slips, trips and fal s requires a holistic approach. Engineering solutions or the change of work practises and procedures may be required, as well as looking at the effect of cleaning and footwear.
Conformity to
DIN 5110

The German Standard DIN 51130 measures the volume of space within the texture of a floor (the lower the volume, the smoother the floor) and gives it a ‘V' value from V4 to V10. This space within the surface texture enables the squeeze film to be ejected from between the shoe sole and the floor. DIN 51130 also measures slip resistance directly on a tilt-ing ramp, the angle of the floor at which a man slips is recorded and given an ‘R' value from 10 to 13. R13 being the most slip resistant category when the angle of the floor is over 35°.
Temperature Resistant Flooring The unique UCRETE® heavy duty polyurethane resin systems do not start to soften until temperatures of 130°C are exceeded. Most other resin flooring materials soften at temperatures in the region 50°C – 60°C. Together with the high resilience of UCRETE® floors, this enables them to withstand high temperatures and extreme thermal shock conditions. UCRETE® industrial flooring is able to with-stand routine and regular discharges of boiling water.
It is clear that in extreme thermal shock environments a good quality well designed substrate is required. In particular the potential y large thermal movements of the substrate must be al owed for.
UCRETE® industrial flooring presents a range of floor finishes available in four separate thickness specifications, ranging from 4 mm floors ful y serviceable up to 60°C to  mm floor:
12 mm specifications suitable for the most extreme envir- fully resistant to 60°C
onments with occasional spil age up to 150°C.
The increasing thickness protects the bond line from the 6 mm floor:

All grades of UCRETE® are dense and impervious through-out their thickness. UCRETE® is essential y inert, it is non-biodegradable and will not support bacterial or fungal growth. UCRETE® industrial flooring is used throughout the food and pharmaceutical industry in environments where the highest standards of hygiene are required.
The very chemical resistant nature of UCRETE® industrial flooring means that no commercial y available clean-ing compounds will damage the floor when used at their normal concentrations. Puddling of cleaning solutions if al owed to evaporate to dryness may lead to deposits on the surface and ‘water marks' which can be hard to remove subsequently. It fol ows that removal of cleaning solutions and adequate rinsing is required to maintain your floor looking its best.
The chosen cleaning chemicals should be appropriate to the environment and the soil to be encountered. As with all cleaning procedures the soiling must be mobilised and then removed from the surface. For best results mechanical cleaning equipment should be used, particularly on larger floors.

packaging debris.
Where required, use proprietary degreasing agents/detergents. High temperatures in excess of 50°C and mechanical action greatly improve the mobilisation of fats.
Degreasing agents require time to work, when using scrubber-dryers it is beneficial to apply the cleaning solution to the floor with the vacuum turned off and after a few minutes return to the area to scrub and remove the cleaning solutions.
Mechanical action helps shift dirt.
Cleaning solution and soil must be removed from the floor, otherwise a layer of soil and detergent may build up making the floor slippery and reducing the appearance.
Effective rinsing is required for best results.
