Quarry tile is widely used in flooring due to its durability, strength, and timeless appeal. Its distinctive appearance, with a rugged, textured surface, adds a touch of warmth and character to any space, making it a popular choice for commercial projects.
Quarry tiles are fired at extremely high temperatures and are made from clay, shale, and other natural materials. This process results in a highly dense and durable tile resistant to moisture, stains, and wear and tear. Available in a wide range of colors, including earthy tones such as terracotta, red, brown, and gray, quarry tile offers flexibility in design, allowing contractors to create unique patterns and layouts.
Whether used for indoor or outdoor applications, quarry tile is known for its remarkable performance. Its resistance to water absorption makes it suitable for wet areas such as bathrooms, commercial kitchens, and laundry rooms. Its dense composition and rough surface also provide optimum slip resistance, making it a safe choice for high-traffic areas and outdoor spaces, including patios, walkways, and pool decks.
In recent years, due to a renewed interest in natural materials and a desire for sustainable building practices, quarry tile has experienced a resurgence in popularity. With its eco-friendly production process and long-lasting nature, it has become a favorite choice among architects and designers seeking a classic yet durable flooring option.
