    Significance and Use

    4.1 Resilient floor tile is subjected to impacts from objects that may be inadvertently dropped on to surfaces. It is not possible to know all of the factors related to the dropped objects (shape, weight, height of drop) or the condition of the environment in which the tile is located (types of subfloor, degree of adhesion to subfloor, temperature). Therefore, this test method can only provide a relative measure of resistance of resilient floor tile to impact.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method measures the resistance to impact of resilient floor tile.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
