Earp Bros offer a large range of services to the architectural and design sector, including slip resistance testing, luminance testing, skilled sales representatives, dedicated training opportunities, green certification, customised products and complete supply chain management.
Over the last 20 years Earp Bros have been at the forefront of risk reduction for flooring specification. Working to Australian Standards and industry best practice, we provide slip resistant tiles that are tested for performance over the life cycle of a building, not just as a factory fresh sample.
All flooring material suffers wear from the moment it it installed. Flooring material performance can drop between 10-50% within the first 3 months after installation, so building owners have a high-risk situation from hand over if the right material is not specified.
We have developed testing and documentation that allows end users to understand how our materials will perform over time. Earp Bros also work directly with manufacturers to produce products specifically for the Australian market and standards.
Our aim is to provide you with relevant information, testing, documentation and products to make the best decision for each application.
We have been refining our slip resistant tile offering for many years. We understand that test results of these materials change between ranges, batches, colours and manufacturers.
This is why Earp Bros work closely with Safe Environments to ensure fast turn around, quality assurance and valid testing takes place on the tiles we offer you.
We only work with manufacturers who are ethically and financially sound and who produce the highest technical material. Our slip resistant materials are based on high-quality design, are easy to care for and consider the life cycle of a building.
Luminance testing of tiles assists in ensuring that your specification complies with accessibility requirements for visually impaired people. Of those who are visually impaired, a large proportion are still able to distinguish variations in shades of colour.
We help you meet the Australian Standards AS1428.4 by providing relevant test results and information for specifications in this area.
We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the ceramic and hard surface industry and feel compelled to share this knowledge with our clients to ensure we create safe, accessible spaces of the highest design, functionality and sustainability.
As an Australian Institute of Architects certified Refuel CPD provider, we have developed the Earp Bros 'Sustainable Slip Resistance' Presentation.
This presentation offers 2 Formal CPD points and provides you with the knowledge necessary to reduce risk when specifying flooring; enhancing the value of buildings through the use of sustainable products with the building's life cycle in mind.
We organise presentations by appointment, so please contact your local sales representative for more information.
