Table for the interpretation of DIN 51130 results

This German standard uses a cleated work boot and oil as the contaminant. If this is not representative of the area where you wish to install a floor, the data will be misleading.

Another common problem is interpreting the data produced. Each ‘R’ value contains a range of possible, results making it difficult to ascertain how slippery a floor is.

For ease of interpretation, CoF values have been added to the table. As a rule of thumb, floors with a CoF of less than 0.25 are likely to have a high slip potential and floors with a CoF above 0.36 are likely to have a low slip potential.
