Why Do We recommend 8×48 Plank Tiles?
All ceramic and porcelain tiles are baked products. They are all given a little angle in the kiln so that they won’t crack under the extreme heat. Therefore all tiles bend to a certain point. Longer tiles bend more compared to shorter ones. Unlike what most people think, the flatness of the tile, (along with the flatness of the floors and the proper skills of the installer) is what helps achieve close joints rather than the rectification of the tile. While Most 8×48 tiles are flat enough to achieve close grout joints, longer planks such as 60″ or 72″ tend to warp. On the other hand, small planks such as 6×24 and 6×36 too much grout. Small wood plank tiles are cheaper, but most of the savings from the price is wasted in the grout. Therefore, we believe the 8×48, 9×48, 10×40 are the optimum sizes for wood plank tiles.
Ceramic tiles with water absorption of 0.5% and lower are categorized as porcelain tiles. Water absorption is what indicates the hardness of the porcelain tile. Wood Plank Tile Jacaranda Oak comes with water absorption of 0.1% or below. Most ceramic and porcelain tiles are glazed products. PEI is an abrasion value that indicates the wear and tear of the glazed surface on a scale from 1 to 5. The recommended value for residential surfaces is PEI3, for commercial surfaces is PEI4. PEI 5 is recommended for extreme foot areas such as malls or airports. All porcelain tiles are made within the PEI 3-4 rate. A PEI-III porcelain tile will last much longer than a PEI-V ceramic tile. Wood Plank Tile Jacaranda Oak’s PEI value is 4.
However, the quality of the setting materials and the installation can increase or lower the durability of the porcelain floors more than ANY PEI OR WATER ABSORPTION VALUE.
