Here is a home improvement idea for the DIY, that is the do it yourself, residential builder or construction contractor.
Accent your home with:
12x12 Decorative Ceramic Floor Tiles can also be used as a one piece Mural or Backsplash
We decorate the Daltile 12x12 glacier white tile
You can use the Daltile 12 in. x 12 in. Glacier white ceramic floor and wall tile on floors in entryways, commercial kitchens, hotels and exhibition rooms.
This ceramic tile is perfectly suited for any frost free indoor or outdoor application, wet or dry.
It has a high resistance to abrasion, so it's a suitable tile for heavy-duty residential and commercial floor installations.
The tile is glazed, and it has a low sheen.
• Grade is the numerical ranking that reflects tile quality. These tiles are grade 1, highest quality for ceramic tile for floor, wall, and countertop use.
• Actual size 11 5/8 in. length x 11 5/8 in. width x 5/16 in. thick.
• Glazed smooth finish with low sheen and a slight variation in tone.
• Ceramic tiles are made from clay. They are the most commonly used tile material indoors but they can also be used outdoors as well. However, if they are to be used outside they need to have a high PEI wear rating. This is a rating of hardness and durability made by the Porcelain Enamel Institute. The PEI rating can be anywhere from 1 through 5. 1 being the most fragile and likely to chip, and 5 being the most durable and used in commercial projects such as shopping malls. For outdoor use, you should choose a tile with a rating of 4 or 5. These tiles have a PEI rating of 4.
• Water absorption is the weight of water absorbed as a percentage tile's weight. Most glazed tile is fired to give an absorbtion rate of less than or equal to 3%, which places them in a frost-proof category. These tiles have an absorbtion rate of 3. But, DalTile claims these tiles are not frost proof. The 3 rating is at the limit. A higher numerical rating tile would be damaged by the freeze-thaw cycle resulting in cracked tile.
• Coefficient of Friction or C.O.F. value is the tile's natural resistance to slip, measured by the force required to move an object acrss the tile divided by its weight. Standard residential applications recommend a C.O.F. greater than .50. ADA guidelines require C.O.F. of greater than .60. These tiles have a wet C.O.F. rating of .42. Tiles with this lower value are not necessarily restricted to dry areas only, but rather restricted to applications
where they are kept dry when walked upon. In the case of residential bathrooms, the common use of bathmats can raise the value to over .60. Similarly, in entryways, the use of entrance mats can accomplish the same.
• Breaking strength is greater than 250 lbs.
