Device to test floors to VDMA guidelines

Face Consultants, UKAS accredited organisation for flatness compliance testing,  can now survey floors to the recently introduced VDMA guidelines with its Face ‘Fx’-meter.

The device attaches to its current Face Digital DIN 15185 Profileograph.  The firm’s floor surveying equipment already covers TR34, The American F number system, EN 15620, DIN 18202 and Din 15185.

In September 2010 VDMA introduced a guideline “Floors for use with VNA Trucks” which is a slightly amended version of the FEM Guidance note rejected by FEM a few months earlier.

Face, with the assistance of BITA and its members, have started carrying out a number of surveys on existing installations where very narrow aisle trucks are operating at differing levels of performance.  Each of the floors will be surveyed to TR34, EN 15620 and DIN 15185 as well as the VDMA Guidelines.
