A practical and hard-wearing porcelain tile with a smooth matt finish, frost-proof glaze and R11 anti-slip rating. Also known as Dotti Mercato Light Grey K781443.
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 Mercato Light Grey Speckled has an R11 slip rating, it is most suitable for areas which are sometime wet such a bathrooms and 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.
