Slip-resistance requirements for housing

AS 4586-2013 'Slip-resistance classification of new pedestrian surface materials' applies to all classes of buildings under the BCA and is required for:

  • Floor surfaces of a ramp

  • The surface of a tread or the nosing strip on the tread

  • The surface of a landing or the strip at the edge of the landing.

The application of finishes to these areas must have documentary evidence to prove the classification. This applies to all finishes and surface types.
