VERIFIED TILES
Vitrified tile is an alternative to marble and granite flooring. Vitrified tiles are often used outdoors due to their water and frost resistance, ‘Vitrified ‘ is made from the word ‘vitrify’ which means to change an element into glass or something similar to glass. These tiles are prepared by fusing clay and silica at high temperatures to prepare a tile that is sturdier, glossier and less porous than ceramic. Simply put, you can also say that Vitrified tiles are low porosity ceramic tiles.
Being prepared at high temperatures the tiles are quite sturdy and temperature resistant and thus can handle traffic without any wear-tear. Additionally, fusing with silica makes it less porous and glossy. This means that the tile can sustain acid and water spills without facing any structural damage.
best for a high trafficked area, because, no matter the the traffic the surface remain the same colour.
It is produce in a way that the same colour on the surface is the same colour at the back and by the side. So the same colour penetrates throughout the entire thickness of the tile.
Verified tiles is best use in
HALL
CLASSROOM
STAIRCASE
BANKS and other night traffic areas.

PORCELAIN TILES
As the second most popular type of flooring, aside from ceramic, porcelain tile provides many benefits to property owners. Porcelain tile is constructed quite similar to ceramic as manufacturers use clay and other natural materials and then fire the materials in a kiln in order to create specific shaped stones. This particular type of flooring provides property owners with the opportunity to have a resistant, durable, and reliable floor implemented into their home or business.
The largest benefit associated with porcelain tiles is that they are incredibly strong and hard, even more than ceramics. With that being said, you can rest assure that your tiles won’t experience any wear and tear due to people constantly walking on them. If you have an area of your home that experiences an ample amount of traffic, consider using porcelain tiles. Also, these tiles can be beneficial for places of business.Porcelain tiles are more costly than normal ceramic tiles
