Ketley Quarry Tiles, sometimes known also as paving tiles, are available in a range of natural clay Staffordshire colours and offer similar performance to traditional quarry tiles. For restoration projects, Ketley Quarry Tiles offer a very good match to the discontinued Hawkins, Daniel Platt and Dennis Ruabon Quarry Tiles which can be found in many parts of the UK.
They offer excellent slip resistance and suit most flooring applications both inside and externally, in commercial premises and in the home.
18mm thick, they are manufactured from the proven Etruria Marl clay, which becomes dense when fired, and is hard wearing and resistant to acids, alkalis, oils, grease and fats. In pendulum tests, where anything higher than 36 indicates low slip potential, our Staffordshire Blue quarry tiles score a dry value average of 63 and a wet value average of 58 on slider 55 which indicates that they are even suitable for use in shower areas, changing rooms and swimming pools. They are classified as R11 which indicates they are considered not to be slippery in wet or greasy conditions and Category C which is the highest rating for slip resistance in wet barefoot conditions.
"I love these floor tiles as they give the impression that they are integral to the building, that they have always been there and have just been uncovered. Unlike a lot of other floor tiles that have perfect regular finishes, these tiles are effectively thin bricks. Their finish has imperfections and irregularities that can transform an interior and give the space a warmth and character from the moment they are laid." Naomi Doran from Relic Interiors London who specified Ketley Quarry Tiles at a number of Draft House pubs.
