When selecting floor tiles be sure to consider the amount of traffic the area will receive first. This is especially important when selecting glazed floor tiles, like the glazed ceramic or glazed porcelain tiles on offer from Johnson Tiles.
Some floor tiles may only be suitable for residential bathrooms while others may be suitable for busier areas like kitchens, shopping malls or even airport terminals. Johnson tiles are tested for abrasion and wear resistance at their technical laboratory and are given a classification according to the Porcelain Enamel Institute (PEI) method. This rating runs from 1 to 5, 1 being the lowest rating - suitable for domestic bathrooms where footwear is seldom worn, and 5 being the highest rating - suitable for busy areas like shopping centres. Be sure to choose the correct rating for the correct application to get the most from your tiles.
Glazed ceramic and glazed porcelain floor tiles are a practical alternative to other methods of flooring. They are easy to clean and maintain, waterproof, will not stain and are cool in summer and can be heated (with under-floor heating) in winter.
