Floor Tile: Commercial Edition

By Kali |

Our tile can go to work on commercial floors too. From restaurant to hotel bathroom floors, our Recycled Clay Body is built to last for heavy duty projects. This clay body boasts a breaking strength of 393 pounds per foot, making it able to stand the test of time and commercial foot traffic. 

Our specialty shape, Wave, in a custom floor, on a restaurant entryway.

Tile Shown: Custom color in Wave. (Try Antique for a similar look).

We also just launched our Non-Slip Tile, which with over 40+ sizes in 16 colors, there is a style and color perfect for any floor. these new tiles will withstand the rigor of commercial flooring applications while passing the DCOF Test.

Please note: While our other products Glazed Thin Brick, Glass and White Clay Body can absolutely be used for wall applications in commercial spaces, we cannot recommend them for commercial floors. 

Keep in mind that we do offer competitive and volume pricing for commercial projects and also have custom capabilities (with color, shape and size). Have questions about what might be best for your project? Don't hesitate to contact us! We're sharing commercial floor inspiration below, but if you want more, check out our Pinterest Board

Cultural Institutions:
A true testament to the durability and heirloom quality of our tile, the floor of the Monterey Bay Aquarium was installed 25 years ago and is holding strong, with roughly two million pairs of feet walking over it annually.

Hospitality:
Restaurants, cafes or grocery stores can all be taken up a notch with a tile floor. Depending on location and building codes, we can also do a sanded finish with our tile colors, as you can see below:

We love the mix of colors in the restaurant floor below. Go for 4" Triangles in a blend of your choice for a look like this.

6" Triangles in a colorful blend make for fun underfoot at this restaurant.

Work Spaces:
Doing a project in an office or work space? Our tile can do the job. Light Lab, a creative space, chose our tile for both its kitchen area, as well as the bathroom floors.

Multi-Unit:
We often tile multi-unit apartment buildings as well, from the kitchen backsplashes to the bathroom floors. If you are tiling bathroom floors, we recommend going for a smaller size, choosing a matte finish or one of our Non-Slip Tile Colors for better grip in a damp environment.

You can also go for a slight larger size for the majority of the bathroom floor and simply scale down in the shower pans:
