LRV's Light Reflective Values

The current guidance in the regulations BS8300:2009 is that adequate visual contrast is provided if the Light Reflectance Value (LRV) of the contrasting areas exceeds 30 points, “i.e., the contrast between the stair edging and the floor covering”. The testing equipment used to assess the LRV of CAT product finishes is an integrated sphere spectrophotometer.

SRV's Slip Resistance Values

Slip resistance values are a measure of how much grip a surface provides, especially when in wet and slippery conditions. Although staircases are an integral part of any building, they also pose a significant safety concern, especially when it comes to slip and fall accidents. In the UK, regulations and guidelines are in place to ensure that stairs are as safe as possible. One critical element in achieving this safety is the slip resistance of stair nosings.
