The Ceramic Tile Institute of America (CTIOA) has endorsed improved slip-resistance test methods and slip resistance safety standards.

Gray LaFortune, CTIOA Director, said this endorsement encourages the use of the test methods and safety standards for not only ceramic tile, but also natural stone, vinyl and linoleum, terrazzo, concrete, and wood flooring. LaFortune is asking U.S. tile manufacturers to provide the new slip safety information to architects, designers and consumers.
