Treaded Quarry Tile For Added Protection

Metropolitan Ceramics’ METRO Tread® features nine raised treads across the surface of each tile and spaced 5/8″ apart for added slip resistance. METRO Tread quarry tile has a dynamic coefficient of friction of ≥.60 wet at time of manufacture. Wet areas with high traffic like commercial kitchens, restaurant kitchens, bar areas and food preparation stations will benefit from a METRO Tread floor.

Install METRO Tread® in a linear pattern for areas such as hallways and ramps when the traffic flows across the tread. For general installations like commercial kitchen floors, METRO Tread® tiles must be installed in a grid – checkerboard – pattern for proper slip resistance.
