D2.13 Goings and risers

  • (a) A stairway must have—
    • (v) treads which have—
      • (A) a surface with a slip-resistance classification not less than that listed in Table D2.14 when tested in accordance with AS 4586; or

11.1 Stair construction
Where required, stairs shall be constructed as follows:

  • (f) At the nosing, each tread shall have a strip not less than 50 mm and not more than 75 mm deep across the full width of the path of travel. The strip may be set back a maximum of 15 mm from the front of the nosing. The strip shall have a minimum luminance contrast of 30% to the background. Where the luminous contrasting strip is affixed to the surface of the tread, any change in level shall comply with Clause 7.2 and Clause 7.3.
  • (g) Where the luminance contrasting strip is not set back from the front of the nosing then any area of luminance contrast shall not extend down the riser more than 10 mm.

2 APPLICATION

The test methods in this Standard shall be used for the classification of pedestrian surface materials for use in either the ‘wet’ or the ‘dry’ condition.

This Standard may also be used for evaluating surface applications and treatments including products such as sealers, polishes and etchants which may modify the surface characteristics of pedestrian surfaces.

As a minimum, one of the three methods specified for the measurement of wet slip resistance (Appendix A, C or D) shall be used for all external pedestrian surfaces and those internal pedestrian surfaces that have a reasonably foreseeable risk of the presence of wet substances such as water, grease and oil.
