Vitrified Tiles are one of the most durable materials known to man. It is for this reason these tiles are appropriate for a diversity of uses. Depending on where they are going to be used, specific types of tiles are more suitable than others for differing uses.
Easy as it Seems, Choosing the Right Tile is Tough
As there are endless design options that you can consider, every visit to a vitrified tile showroom is liable to leave you more confused and less decisive than when you went in.
Keeping this tendency in mind, we’d like to make life easier for you by helping re-visit and relook at the different types of vitrified wall and floor tiles and help you to seriously consider the most appropriate type of tiles for your space.
Choosing wall and floor finishes using different types of tiles is a very critical process and you really cannot afford to make a mistake here as it will delay your project and overshoot set budgets. So a little care will go a long, long way.
Having said that, the biggest advantages of vitrified wall and floor tiles is that they are an economic choice as the tendency is to compare these tiles with other materials you could opt for. These tiles are easier to lay, set quickly, last longer, and are simple to maintain.
Double Charged Vitrified Tiles
Double Charged Vitrified Tiles are made by fusing two layers of pigment; and are usually 3-4 mm thicker than normal tiles. These tiles are therefore extremely durable, easy to maintain, are resistant to dirt and dust, and are scratch and stain resistant. These tiles are ideal for heavy duty use.
Double Charged Vitrified Tiles come with different finishes to produce widely varying effects — all suitable as a decorative finish or an accent tile.
Glazed Vitrified Tile
Perhaps the most commonly used tiles available, these tiles are durable and easy to maintain. They are robust, and more resistant and are often used for flooring. The anti-skid feature makes them ideal for floorings in kitchens, bathrooms and wet areas.
With the progress of digital printing technology, any type of finish is possible on tiles now. The striking designs of Glazed Vitrified Tiles are digitally printed on the glaze coating, which allows for the creation of a multitude of visually pleasing and artistic tile designs.
These tiles can convincingly recreate different natural and man-made finishes, in the form of marble, stone, wood, metallic and other finishes.
Polished Glazed Vitrified Tiles:
These tiles are the same as glazed vitrified tiles but with a layer of polish on top to make the tiles shinier.
Full Body Vitrified Tiles:
These tiles have color in the entire body/thickness of the vitrified tile, making scratches less visible. This distinctive characteristic of these tiles make them ideal for areas with high traffic like shopping malls, etc. These tiles never fade and are easy to clean and maintain.
