Grestec Pop-Up is the new space in the heart of WC1 for architects and designers to develop their projects and specifications. The space incorporates 100×100mm samples to take away, A5 sample cards, full-sized large format tiles and a multitude of pick-up, on-trend tiles to inspire for the next project.
WHAT IS THE PENDULUM TEST?
– The Pendulum test measures dynamic coefficient of friction (CoF). The test is designed to replicate a pedestrian heel strike, the point at which most slips occur.
-When a pedestrian heel strikes a wet floor a fluid film is created between them, this can cause a slip.
When designing for care projects, the types of tiles specified are extremely important. Age-related changes and impairments can often make it more difficult for people to understand and navigate a building, so we have put together an advice document of tiles assessing their suitability for use in dementia-friendly environments.
