The performance of surface covering products often depends on installation, environmental, and usage factors unique to each project. AKDO is not responsible for any effects that may be caused to products due to installation, wear from use, or exposure to environmental factors including but not limited to: hard water, chemicals, heat, flame, smoke, dirt or other substances. It is your responsibility to assess the project to determine if the product you are selecting is appropriate considering the unique characteristics of your installation, and to apply appropriate, high quality sealers when necessary. Please consult your installer for more information.
DCOF – ANSI A.137.1 Due to the natural characteristics and variation in natural stone, slip resistance will vary. Such factors are dependent on lots, finish and the topical sealant applied. There is currently no standard industry test with the ability to measure the exact slip resistance.
In order to reduce the slipperiness of stone surfaces, AKDO suggests selecting a Non-Polished finish such as Honed, Sandblasted, or Textured stone, or choosing a mosaic, as the grout joints in the stone result in an increase of friction.
