The best tiles for commercial use will address maintenance, slip resistance, durability, and design plan requirements. Porcelain tiles have low a water absorption rate that eases maintenance, high breaking strength and hardness for durability, the correct coefficient of friction for slip resistance, and they are fashion forward.
Yes. It is an excellent choice for commercial settings due to a variety of technical factors. Porcelain tiles have an extremely low water absorption rate. Therefore, they deter staining and are easily maintained. The product is also inordinately hard, with a high breaking strength that will help it resist the rigors of a typical commercial application.
This product has an extremely long lifecycle. The material is hard, virtually impervious to staining, and is very easy to maintain. Porcelain tiles are also fashion-forward and offer the consumer a wide variety of styles to choose from. While it is difficult to quantify worth, a long-lasting, fashionable product like this one is a good example of a worthy choice.
The best porcelain tile is the one that best fits the budget, the technical requirements, and the design plan. It is also installed correctly and in a timely fashion. However, there are always a wide variety of subjective and personal factors that go into anything aspiring to be called the “best.” We can help you choose wisely.
Porcelain tiles have high breaking and compressive strengths, as required in ASTM testing. This tells us is that, in conjunction with a proper Tile Council of America type installation, this product is highly resistant to cracking. In summary, when the installation bed supports the tile properly, all should be well. This will hold true in both commercial and residential applications.
The best flooring for a commercial kitchen is the one that meets a client’s requirements for both slip and stain resistance, has overall ease of maintenance, is hygienic, and has a generally clean, acceptable appearance. Porcelain tiles are typically impervious to even the most aggressive staining agents found in the kitchen environment. The wide range of colors and styles also assure a satisfying and durable appearance.
Porcelain tiles are a superb choice. As discussed elsewhere in this series of FAQs, the kitchen environment demands ease of maintenance, hygienic functionality, and at least some level of visual appeal. This type of tile is vitreous — meaning it has almost no water absorption — which contributes to easy cleaning and high levels of hygiene. The wide selection of colors, patterns, and styles assure the aesthetics.
Commercial floors have a series of basic technical requirements. They need to be relatively easy to maintain; cannot be slippery, especially when exposed to potentially wet feet; must be durable; and must be relatively simple to install. Porcelain tiles have low water absorption for easy cleaning, have a high coefficient of friction for slip resistance, and the installation steps are well known. A perfect match.
