Real dimensions of the tiles.
Rectification is an extra step in the manufacturing process that produces tiles
with the same dimensional characteristics. The major advantage of this operation
is to lay the tiles with nearly no joints (at least 2 mm). This explains why a rectified
tile is more expensive than the same tile that is non-rectified.
Ceramic tiles abrasion resistance is the capacity of the glaze surface to resist
to wear caused by foot traffic or the abrasion caused by mechanical equipment
(lift trucks, etc.). The wear action is strictly linked with the mechanical agent
(rubber sole, leather sole, etc.), the material carried onto the surface (water,
sand, mud, etc.) and is classified in five categories depending on the areas they
are to be used in:
PEI I Tiles for areas with light traffic and without abrasive dirt, e.g. bathrooms,
PEI II Tiles for areas with average traffic and medium to low abrasion, e.g. studying
rooms, living rooms.
PEI III Tiles for areas with medium to high traffic and average abrasion, e.g. foyer,
kitchen in private residences
PEI IV Tiles for areas with intense traffic, e.g. restaurants, offices, shops,
public offices (excluding floors under cash register and shop counters and narrow
PEI V Tiles for areas with especially intense traffic.
