Wet Barefoot Ramp Test

Wet Barefoot Ramp Test

Wet barefoot ramp slip resistance testing is used for applications where it is expected that the majority of users will be in bare feet.  This test is carried out on the same ramp apparatus as the oil ramp test except the test panel has a stream of water (no oil) and with the test operator not wearing any shoes.

As with the oil-wet ramp test, a panel of the tiles to be tested are inclined to the point where the barefoot operator slips, and the angle of the panel / ramp is measured.  The angle results are then classified as either A, B or C (highest).

Swimming pools, their surrounds and their amenities  are by far the most common design applications where wet barefoot test results are considered.  Metz extensive experience with swimming pools means that we will only recommend barefoot C rated tiles for pool surrounds.
