NEW You Tube VIDEO-Maintaining Metropolitan Ceramics Tile What Sets Quarry Tile Apart from textured porcelain and pressed pavers?
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. If that’s the case than a video must be worth a million. Metropolitan Ceramics has just finished editing a very simple and easy to follow commercial floor cleaning video guide. Obviously the company already has complete and very detailed written floor cleaning instructions. The video is meant to be a quick reference - not to replace the guide - but as an additional tool. Let's face it the people in charge of cleaning most commercial kitchen floors are young, and they like watching videos. If a video helps them do their job better why not use it. Watch the video and share with your customers.
With all of their foot traffic, and spills of all kinds including grease and oil, commercial kitchen floors need a special floor covering. Most people realize that quarry tile with its durability and slip resisting properties is by far the best solution for their commercial kitchen. But did you know that sometimes what is being installed as quarry tile may not be quarry tile at all but may instead be a pressed paver or textured porcelain? What’s the difference you say? There really is plenty and installing the wrong product could end up costing in the long run. Follow this link that explains the differences and show you why true quarry tile is always your best bet.

Confused?
So are many “experts” that write about quarry tile on the INTERNET.
Metropolitan meets CE MARK Requirements
Some of the definitions we find from DIY experts describing quarry tile are way off. One of the huge misconceptions we’ve seen is that quarry tile is a big 12”x12” tile that is very high absorption. One article even went so far as to say the tiles should be soaked with water before installation. Obviously they have quarry tile confused with pressed clay tiles. Quarry tile by definition is extruded and fired in kilns at high temperatures. The extrusion and firing usually creates a product that is very low absorption, even vitreous.
Anyone wanting to sell products in the European Union knows they can’t get far without a CE mark. The CE mark is the stamp of approval that products need to be sold in Europe and the UK. Metropolitan Ceramics has diligently gone through the process necessary to carry the mark. If you have customers that need a product with CE mark approval call customer service @ 1-800-325-3945
