This NORDTEST method specifies a method for determination of the friction on sport floors when exposed to a dynamic, vertical, and rotating point load (i.e., simulating the load exerted by an athlete in a rotating movement on the floor).
The aim of this method is to evaluate the suitability of floors used on wood or wood-based materials in bathrooms and rooms with a similar exposure to water and mechanical stresses. The test procedure is intended to simulate the influences which can be expected during long-term use.
Nordtest is a trademark of Nordic cooperation in conformity assessment. The emphasis of Nordtest is to develop, promote and innovate Nordic test methods and pre-normative activity. Nordtest endeavours to remove technical barriers to trade and promotes the concept: “Approved once, accepted everywhere”.
