4.4 Steel floor, consisting of a stainless steel plate.

Surface roughness shall be measured in the area where the slip measurements are actually made.

Measurements shall be made at 10 locations within this area and in the direction parallel to the

direction of sliding movement in the test. At each location, measurements shall be made with a sampling

length of 0,8 mm, taking five sampling lengths per location (evaluation length 4,0 mm).

The average roughness, R , shall be measured in accordance with ISO 4287. The overall mean value

from all 10 locations shall be for R between 1,6 μm and 2,5 µm.

When the roughness parameter does not conform to the above specifications, the steel shall be

prepared using silicon carbide abrasive paper or cloth for polishing in a backwards and forwards,

linear motion, using a succession of reducing grit sizes. The polishing direction of each operation shall

be perpendicular to the preceding operation with the final direction being parallel to the direction of

sliding movement in the test. The preparation shall continue until the roughness parameter falls within

the above specifications. New steel floor plates shall also be prepared by this method.

NOTE 1 For example, steel Number 1.4301, Type 2G (cold rolled, ground) conforming to EN 10088-2:2005.

NOTE 2 Grit sizes 100 to 600 can be suitable.

4.5 Pressed ceramic tile floor, as specified in Annex B. The tiles shall not be modified in any way, for

example, by mechanical or chemical treatment other than as allowed in B.2.

4.6 Other surfaces, for example, wood, concrete, stone and polymeric flooring, with or without

lubricants may be used. The surface used shall be characterized by determining the coefficient of friction

in accordance with Annex C.

4.7 Mechanism for inducing movement between the footwear and the surface at a time and speed as

specified in Clause 6.

4.8 Device for measuring the frictional force between the footwear and surface during the

measurement period to an accuracy of 2 % or better.

4.9 Silicon carbide paper, 400 grit size, mounted on a rigid block with a flat face measuring

100 mm × 70 mm and mass (1 200 ± 120) g.
NOTE This can be achieved using steel to make a block 22 mm thick.

4.10 Rigid wedges having a (7,0 ± 0,5)° angle for setting the contact angle. The tip of each wedge

(Figure 1) shall be truncated to a maximum height of 0,5 mm as judged by graduated eyepiece or

equivalent means. The width of the wedge should be sufficient to ensure that the full width of the heel

or forepart shall be fully supported by the wedge. For the heel test, the length shall be sufficient to

support the full length of the heel but shall not make contact with the forepart [see Figure 2 a)]. For

the forepart test, the length of the wedge shall be sufficient to support the heel and forepart of the shoe

[see Figure 2 b)].

The purpose of the wedge when used in 6.2.2 and C.4.3 is to ensure that the test footwear or specimen

S96 is elevated by no more than ≈1 mm above the test surface when the contact angle is being set. To

facilitate this, the wedge may be marked with a line parallel to, and ≈4 mm from, the truncated edge at

the position where the wedge has a height of ≈1 mm, as shown in Figure 1.

5 Sampling and conditioning
5.1 Sampling

Unless otherwise specified, use a minimum of two samples, one left and one right, of the same type of

footwear of the same size.
5.2 Conditioning

The test items shall be conditioned prior to the test at (23 ± 2) °C and (50 ± 5) % RH for a minimum

of 24 h. If necessary, the sample may be removed from this standard atmosphere provided that its

temperature is maintained at (23 ± 2) °C, that testing starts within 30 min after removal from this

standard atmosphere and that the testing is carried out at (23 ± 2) °C.
6 Test method
6.1 Principle

The item of footwear to be tested is put on a surface, subjected to a given normal force, and moved

horizontally relative to the surface (or the surface is moved horizontally relative to the item of

footwear). Both the frictional force and normal force are measured and the dynamic CoF is calculated.

For each of the required measurements performed in accordance with this document, a corresponding

estimate of the uncertainty of measurement should be evaluated. One of the following approaches shall

be used:
[2]
— a statistical method, e.g. that given in ISO 5725-2 ;
[3]
— a mathematical method, e.g. that given in ISO/IEC Guide 98-3 ;

6.2 Test modes and test conditions

6.2.1 The footwear shall be tested in one or more of the following modes (see Figure 2):

a) forward heel slip at angled contact;
b) backward slip on the forepart;
c) forward flat slip.

NOTE The heel test mode is considered the most important test mode in relation to reducing the risk of

pedestrian slip.

Figure 3 — Inside tangent of the standard or manufacturer's shoemaking last aligned

parallel to the direction of movement in heel and forepart test modes

In the heel test mode the footwear moves forward in the heel to toe direction. The contact angle

between the bottom of the main area of the heel, not including any profile or chamfer at the rear edge of

the heel, and the floor shall be (7,0 ± 0,5)° [see Figure 2 a)], determined using a rigid wedge (4.10) placed

on the floor, the leading edge of the wedge shall be orthogonal to the direction of sliding movement.

The shoemaking last, with the footwear mounted on it, shall be lowered onto the wedge under its own

weight and adjusted until the footwear heel sits flat on the angled face of the wedge with ≈4 mm of

the wedge extending beyond the rearmost contact point of the heel with the face of the wedge. The

footwear forepart shall not contact the surface or the rigid wedge.

In the forepart test mode the footwear moves backwards in the toe to heel direction. The contact angle

between the bottom of the shoe and the floor shall be (7,0 ± 0,5)° [see Figure 2 b)] determined using a

rigid wedge (4.10) placed on the floor. The shoemaking last (4.1.1 or 4.1.2), with the footwear mounted

on it, shall be lowered onto the wedge under its own weight and adjusted until the footwear bottom sits

flat on the angled face of the wedge with ≈4 mm of the wedge extending beyond the foremost contact

point of the forepart with the face of the wedge.

For the flat test mode, the footwear shall be fitted onto the mechanical foot (4.1.3) or the manufacturer's

shoemaking last (4.1.2). The mechanical foot shall be orientated such that the longitudinal axis of the

mechanical foot is aligned parallel to the direction of sliding movement. The footwear shall be fitted onto

the mechanical foot with the heel contact plate placed centrally in the heel seat with a small gap between

the back edge and sides of the insole and with the forepart contact plate positioned approximately central

to the forepart (see Figure 4). If using a manufacturer's shoemaking last in place of the mechanical foot,

then the last shall be aligned such that the footwear attains the same orientation of the outsole tread

pattern relative to the direction of slip as would be achieved if using a mechanical foot.

see Figure 5. The vertex is the central point of contact between the outsole and floor when the footwear

is rested horizontally on the floor without additional load i.e. without last.

6.2.3 The normal force (3.1) for footwear of European size 40 (UK size 7, Mondopoint 255) and above

shall be (500 ± 25) N. For footwear of European size below 40, the normal force shall be (400 ± 20) N.

Once achieved, the required normal force, within the stated tolerance, shall be maintained throughout

the measurement period of the test (6.2.6).

In the heel test mode, the line of action of the normal force shall be aligned approximately through the

rear edge of the heel-floor contact area determined under the weight of the shoe, last and mounting
