SLIP RATINGS EXPLAINED

Anti Slip floor tiles are given a resistance rating to help grade the non slip level differed by a particular tile. This is known as the “R” value. R11 and R12 is the resistance recommended by many professionals for public wet areas such as showers in a changing room. Whereas R9 and R10 values are often used and recommended for domestic Bathroom Tiles or Kitchen Tiles where the risk of slipping is less.
The tile industry refers to the draft informative index (ISO 10545) classification of Ceramic Tiles according to their slip resistance. This classification has been obtained by testing tiles in both wet and dry conditions prior to installation. An understanding of the measurement of the coefficient of friction and the importance of slip resistance for different types of Anti Slip Tiles is essential to avoid and reduce the risk of slip related incidents.

Saunas, bathrooms, swimming pools, water centers, SPA procedure rooms, kitchens, operation rooms etc. 0,64 and more.

R9 <0.2 COF:
Tiles will mostly be smooth glazed tiles which will record this low value when wet. These tiles should only be used in dry situations and should be excluded from wet environments.

R10 >0.2 COF<0.4 COF:
Tiles will usually be glazed tiles which show these values only when wet, although there may also be a small number of unglazed tiles in this category. Besides domestic bathrooms, where the use of a bathmat is essential, they may be considered for other domestic areas such as kitchens, and other areas which are dry.

R11 + R12 >0.4 COF<0.7COF:
Tiles will include some glazed tiles and most unglazed tiles. If a tile has this CoF as a minimum, dry and wet, it may be regarded as safe for installations including bathrooms, kitchens, porches, halls, cloakrooms, and living rooms. They may also be used for public areas such as cloakrooms, lavatories, communal showers,swimming pool surrounds, and larger areas such as shopping centers, airport concourses, hotel foyers, public walkways, etc.

HD SHOW 2017 Mandalay Bay Las Vegas

HD Show 2017 was a great success. After months of preparations, we arrived at Mandalay Bay convention center for installation. The scene of the before and after at the convention center is surreal. Forklifts moving the palettes and boxes. There was mayhem everywhere but well organized and maintained. After hours of preparations finally our booth is put together and we were ready to showcase our unique porcelain tiles. The next day was pure excitement connecting with the decision makers, specifiers, designers, architects and developers in the design community from all over the world.
We owe our success in our products as they just speak for themselves. Tiles are thoughtfully sourced by our experienced team to satisfy the creative culture of the design community. Our collections of Wood Look Tile, Concrete Look Tile, Stone Look Tile and Fabric Look Tile are from the most reputable manufacturers using the most advanced and cutting edge technology.
Using innovative Italian ink jet glazing technology, an innovation which allows tile makers to produce the smallest details with endless variation. The result is a tile with all the beauty and character of wood, concrete and stone, but with the added value of extreme durability and easy maintenance. The perfect marriage of technology and artistry. Most porcelain tiles are well suited for both commercial and residential projects, both indoors and out.
