Ceramic and stone tile basics
Commercial ceramic tile encompasses the various types of tile that are made from clay form or clay mixture and then fired in a kiln. These tiles fall into two categories, porcelain and non-porcelain tile. Porcelain tile is highly durable, water-resistant, dense and smooth, made by pressing together porcelain clays. Non-porcelain ceramic tiles are typically made from a red or white clay and some are used for light to moderate foot traffic but usually offer lower cost than porcelain. Natural stone tiles are made from rocky materials found in the earth and are tremendously durable.
Why choose ceramic or stone tile?
Porcelain and stone tile are exceedingly durable and offer excellent lasting quality. Both ceramic and stone provide a premium, high-end finish and can come in a broad range of colors and textures. Natural stone tiles in particular offer one-of-a-kind finishes, as each stone is unique, differing in color, feel and composition.
Applications for ceramic and stone tile
Commercial ceramic tile and stone tile are often found in settings designed to create a quality appeal but also serve a high volume of foot traffic. Hotel lobbies, stadium entrance areas, public venues, retail settings and high-end office buildings often use these timeless products.
Cost can be a drawback to these versatile, durable and highly aesthetic materials. Both stone tile and commercial ceramic tile, particularly porcelain, are premium materials. But their great durability reduces long-term maintenance costs, and they can deliver great long-term value. Today, new synthetic materials, such as specialty LVT, have hit the market and provide cost-effective, durable solutions for many of the applications traditionally served by stone and ceramic tile.
