1M2110 Marrakesh No. 1 Decor floor tile 18.6x18.6cm by Golden Tile (Ukraine).
An anti-slip porcelain tile with a matt finish and frost-proof glaze. The Marrakesh No. 1 Decor is a digitally printed geometric floor tile featuring a bold repeating print pattern inspired by classic Moroccan tiles. Fashionable in hallways and conservatories, this provides an inexpensive solution to traditional Victorian floor tiles and can be laid with one of the matching Marrakesh border tiles.
Although produced using modern manufacturing methods, the Marrakesh No. 1 Decor is sometimes referred to as an encaustic tile. Before the advent of screen printing (and more recently digital printing) one technique of applying different colours to tiles was to use different coloured clays. The Victorians called these encaustic tiles which were originally known as inlaid tiles. It is common for patterned tiles to be conflated with encaustic tiles because they share many similar features including repeating print patterns.
Tiles classified as an anti-slip floor tile are assigned an ‘R’ value which runs along a scale from R9 (not tested but manufactured to a minimum standard) all the way through to R13 (the highest slip resistance). As the Marrakesh No. 1 Decor has an R10 slip rating, it is most suitable for dry domestic areas such as kitchens.
Frost-proof tiles are an important consideration for rooms where the temperature may drop below zero such as utility rooms and conservatories. Tiles with a frost-proof glaze have a water absorption rate of less than 0.5% meaning they are ideal for such conditions. Tiles which are not frost-proof may absorb water which would freeze at zero and below, causing the tile to crack.
