Glazed porcelain tiles are coated with liquid glass, and then baked so that the protection is impervious to wear and tear as well as stains. Unglazed tiles do not have a coated surface, and full body porcelain tiles don't show wear anyhow due to the colour and design being throughout the entire tile. These types of tiles have a PEI rating of 0-5 meaning they can be used in any area. PEI classes are 0 through 5. The porcelain enamel institute scale is one that is used to help detect areas that tiles should be used in. The glazed tiles that have the overall 0 to 5 rating can be used anywhere from no foot traffic to industrial traffic, making them ideal for use in your home.
Porcelain tiles are durable and require a minimal tile cleaning maintenance programme. They are highly recommended for heavy wear areas in any home or property. What is considered as a heavy-duty material is therefore regularly used in kitchens, hallways, bathrooms and other areas of the home with no compromise in aesthetic appeal. With an emphasis on long-term performance and longevity, porcelain flooring is heat-resistant, frost proof and breathable. These factors mean that porcelain floor tiling is a great option combined with under floor heating as they conduct heat fabulously, adding to energy efficiency.
