How to buy the best tiles for your Factory Floor?
The floor of an industrial area such as a factory needs to be sturdy enough to withstand the load of plying vehicles like pay loader, stacker machine, heavy tools etc. Heavy-duty and abrasion-resistant tiles are an ideal choice if you are looking for a tile flooring option while setting up a factory. These tiles must remain robust, durable, and weatherproof as compared other types of regular tiles.
Tiles for your Factory – Attributes to look for!
Here are the factors to consider while choosing the tiles for your factory.
When tiling up your industrial area or a factory, it is essential to choose tiles that are made of the strongest material. MOH is a scale that measures the surface scratch hardness value of the tiles. It is rated on a scale of 1 to 10. The higher the value, the more hardness and sturdier is the surface. Ideally, for factory tiles, choose tiles that have MOH value greater than 6 to ensure that the tiles do not get scratched and offer a tough and rigid floor. Johnson Endura tiles are available in 20X10 and 30X30 cm sizes. Both sizes are available in Glazed (MOH=6) and UnGlazed (MOH=7) options.
Due to the continuous heavy use and maintenance activities, the tiles that are not equipped with anti-scratch properties begin to lose their aesthetic beauty and durability. While the scratch-free surface of the full-body industrial tiles remains robust to sustain foot traffic as well as machine load.
