AS 4586-2013 Slip resistance classification of new pedestrian surface materials
AS 4586 sets out a means of classifying pedestrian surfaces according to their frictional characteristics.
Whilst the BCA and Premises Standards do not prescribe a slip-resistance rating to all surfaces (other than ramps, stairs and landings), AS 1428.1 does require a slip-resistance surface on accessible paths (without quantifying how).
In conjunction with HB 198, AS 4586 is a source of reference to determine appropriate ratings for all floor surface locations (and uses), such as swimming pool surrounds, changing rooms, hotel ensuites, external walkways and many more.
