Commercial tiles are tiles that are laid in commercial establishments. In addition to the usual criteria for tiles, they must of course also correspond to the commercial purpose of the company. Commercial object tiles must therefore be able to do a little more than just look pretty.
What requirements do commercial object tiles have to meet?
Floor tiles have to withstand greater loads than wall tiles. Many people go in and out of every commercial enterprise every day. This means that the stress is considerably higher than in a single-family house.
The general requirements for commercial tiles include:
- High general load capacity
- Water resistance
- Enormous breaking strength
- Good durability
- Attractive appearance
- Easy handling and cleaning
In the sanitary areas of the offices, normal tiles, which are also used in single-family houses, can of course be used. If it is a hotel, a restaurant or an authority, these are also used more than usual. In a public swimming pool, floor and wall tiles have to withstand a lot more than usual. The stress lies in the daily load capacity, impact and scratching stress as well as increased risk of breakage. In addition, they must of course meet the criteria for wet rooms and not fall out of the pool immediately after the first water fountain.
