This WoodSolutions guide, Slip Resistance and Wood Pedestrian Surfaces is written for designers, specifiers, producers, installers and end-users of pedestrian trafficable wood products - such as flooring, decking, boardwalks, steps, stairs, ramps and bridges.
The publication provides a brief introduction to slip resistance, continuing to discuss the slip resistance suitability of wood with respect to location and use. The authors then describe methods for improving slip resistance, summarise relevant Australian obligations, both statutory and legal, and recommendations. The guide also includes an explanation of slip resistance testing methods.
The information and applications are supported by case studies and the results of testing various wood products in a range of situations and conditions.
