When specifying tiles for a commercial project, HSE anti-slip guidelines advise and recommend using tiles that meet particular floor slip rating requirements.

For barefoot areas (areas exposed to wet), the slip resistance of tiles is tested on an inclined surface with a pre-determined slope angle and classified according to rating groups A, B and C.

The below table can be used as a guide for tile slip rating requirements for barefoot areas:
