If your automotive facility build depends on imported tile, you face significant risk.

On Monday, September 5th, 2022, Russia permanently stopped supplying natural gas to Europe.  All natural gas sent through the Nord Stream 1 Pipeline was  permanently terminated. Energy prices have increased more than 500%. This singular event changes everything and significantly impacts EU tile product pricing, production capabilities, transportation, and trans-ocean shipping. If your brand program, or automotive facility project uses tile produced in the EU  you face significant price increases, prolonged production times, increased transportation costs, and you significant risk.

"Automotive Service Facility Design & Planning Risk Management Guide"

Starting in Summer of 2022, automotive facility design and construction changed.  This change was implemented by the new ANSI A326.3 standard which published new and higher DCOF (dynamic coefficient of friction) requirements for hard surfaces (tile) used in automotive builds. 

Dealership builds face increased STF litigation exposure if you do not adhere, address and comply with the new requirements created by this standard.  There are many facets to this standard which additionally require tile manufacturers to declare that their products are appropriate for the environment of use, and all parties involved with the selection, installation, and use of flooring materials. 

Risk is determined not only by the environment of use, but also your facility design and construction.  As ANSI A326.3.2021.4.1.5 Oils, Grease (O/G) Environment states the following, “Subject to determination by specifier and the criteria in this standard, may include, but are not limited to, level areas regularly exposed to automotive fluids,”

There are no ANSI police, but there are plaintiff attorneys who specialize in STF litigation and if dealerships, architects, builders and contractors don’t properly measure risk, all parties can be involved in costly litigation. 

Download the document to get up to speed on this new standard.  Contact your AutoStoneUSA representative to help you with your facility planning.  Lastly, rest assured that AutoStoneUSA has the right products to support your automotive facility build.

Advanced surface technology.
safer, smarter, better.

The reality of an automotive service facility is that dealers conduct business on floors that have contaminants tracked in by vehicles throughout the day. This increases STF (slip, trip, fall) risk exposure. Employees and customers are constantly exposed to these STF conditions which if not properly managed can lead to workplace injuries, litigation, and higher general liability insurance premiums. The question for a dealership is, “what is the best floor surface to address the reality of STF risk we face in the service drive and workshop space?” We suggest you talk with AutoStone to find a better solution to address and reduce STF risk.

Chain-Rake QC Floor Testing
Eliminate Latent Installation Defects During Installation

Ask about the AutoStone “Chain-Rake” QC (quality control) process to assure that your workshop project delivers a lifetime of performance, function, and beauty.  When it comes an automotive industrial floor, one of the risks ownership faces is latent warranty issues related to cracked-and-broken tile. 

You can’t see if a tile is fully bonded to the substrate – but you CAN hear it!

When successfully implemented this QC process eliminates most future latent warranty issues that result in cracked/broken tile.  Cracked/broken tile usually happens due to insufficient thin set applied to the back of the tile.  This QC process helps identify those issues before the flooring contractor has left the project, so a fully bonded floor is realized, and future warranty issues are identified during the installation process.
