R9 - Best used in dry indoor areas: Bathrooms*, kitchens*, hallways*, living rooms, bedrooms and studies.
Generally, smooth surface gloss or matt tiles which can produce a slip hazard when wet, as a shoe may slide over the tiles*Suitable matting should be in place to absorb water splashes etc
R10 - Best used in indoor or outdoor areas where there may be minimal wetting remaining on the surface: Bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, food courts, and commercial areas with external entrances.
The tile surface will generally be a textured matt glaze, sometimes with a slight surface structure, designed to prevent shoes from sliding over their surface.
R11 - Best used in areas which may be subject to heavy wetting of the surface: Wetrooms, exposed balconies, patios.
The tile surface will usually be a heavier textured matt glaze, sometimes with a slight surface structure, designed to prevent shoes from sliding over their surface. Designed for both indoor and outdoor areas, where there can also be the presence of other surface contaminants, such as liquid soaps and leaf debris.
R12 - Best used in areas which may be subject to heavy wetting of the surface: Wetrooms, exposed balconies, patios, swimming pool surrounds, factory production lines, vehicle inspection pits
The tile surface will often have deep recesses to drain water and other liquid contaminants from the raised surface areas.
R13 - Best used in areas which may be subject to heavy wetting of the surface combined with other contaminants, steps or ramps: Commercial swimming pool and spa surrounds, Factory production lines, vehicle inspection pits
The tile surface will have very deep recesses to drain water and other liquid contaminants, such as oils from the raised surface areas and are designed for commercial areas including industrial process areas where there is dangerous equipment present
Does it need polishing?
Our advice: No, this tile does not require polishing.
Hi How many different patterns are there please? And as there are only 8 tiles in a box will I end up with the same number of each pattern over 10 metres of tiles Thanks
Our advice: The manufacturer uses a random inkjet machine that randomly prints a 300x600mm area taken from a 1300x4000mm print design. This method minimises the chances of any repeating patterns.
Hi there, re Barnaby gloss tile question above, the edges are tapered , which will make the grout line very wide. Any suggestions to get a 2mm finished grout line?
Our advice: We would not advise installing these tiles with grout joints smaller than 3mm.
Hello, we liked the sample Barnaby Marble gloss tile and would like to buy, but, The edges are 'champhered' or 'bevelled'. We want a very narrow grout line - 2 mm maximum. If we use 2mm spacers on these tiles we will end up with a 4mm grout line. Would you please advise us what we can do . Thanks
Our advice: We would recommend a minimum 3mm grout joint on this tile. We would not advise trying to install the tiles any closer together.
The tiles I like have a champhered edge - not a square cut edge. So if I use a 2 mm spacer they will end up much wider apart. How can I lay them to end up with a 2 mm space ?
Our advice: If the tiles are not rectified we would not advise laying them any closer than 3mm.
Hi, Would you recommend gloss for walls and matt for bathroom floor? Or is that unlikely to be significantly different in terms of slipping hazard? Thanks
Our advice: Generically, the more textured the tile is, the higher the slip resistance value it will have. Where there are possibilities of the floor being wet, we would generally advise a rating of R10 or above. We do offer a free sample service so that you are able to check a tile's suitability for your project.
Is this suitable for underfloor heating?
Our advice: Yes, this tile is suitable for use with underfloor heating.
