Quarry Tile for Demanding Applications

QuarryBasics® Clear Tones unglazed ceramic quarry tile  offers the combination of long wear and great looking colors and shapes. The colors coordinate to fit high traffic, multi-use, commercial and residential design needs. QuarryBasics® Clear Tones are the foremost natural, unglazed, high density ceramic quarry tile made in the U.S.A.

Metropolitan Ceramics' QuarryBasics® Clear Tones quarry tiles are designed for areas of heavy use. The products are extruded and fired in kilns at high temperatures to create quarry tile that is very low absorption (vitreous), slip resisting and extremely durable. Metropolitan Ceramics' QuarryBasics® Clear Tones quarry tile meets or exceeds eight durability tests, including breaking strength and abrasion resistance.

Specified for commercial kitchen floors throughout the United States and abroad, use QuarryBasics® Clear Tones tiles for the most formidable commercial flooring applications. Places like food processing plants, convenience stores or public spaces, anywhere extremes in temperature and wet conditions are prevalent will benefit from having a QuarryBasics® Clear Tones quarry tile floor.

QuarryBasics® unglazed quarry tiles are available in natural earth tone colors, including Raven, a nearly black color. QuarryBasics® quarry tiles are ½” thick for added strength.

Metropolitan Ceramics' METRO Tread® features nine raised treads across the surface of each tile and spaced 5/8″ apart for added slip resistance. METRO Tread® has a dynamic coefficient of friction of ≥.60 wet at time of manufacture. Wet areas with high traffic like commercial kitchens, restaurant kitchens, bar areas and food preparation stations will benefit from a METRO Tread floor.

 

Install METRO Tread® in a linear pattern for areas such as hallways and ramps when the traffic flows across the tread. For general installations like commercial kitchen floors, METRO Tread® tiles must be installed in a grid - checkerboard - pattern for proper slip resistance.
