Resilient, textile and laminate floor coverings have a number of specific characteristics and are grouped into a number of use classes.
A standardised system of graphic symbols has been developed in order to make the classification and to render these specific characteristics easily understandable and recognisable for the consumer.
Only symbols which are linked directly to a European Standard were developed. The basic and additional requirements behind the symbols are defined in:
- EN 1307
- EN 1470
- EN 14041
- EN 13297
