This is a very popular quarry tile in both contemporary and heritage schemes, and in commercial and domestic projects alike. Its traditional Staffordshire blue clay colour with its natural shade variations works well in Victorian restoration projects as well as in contemporary interior spaces bringing character and interest. Different effects can be achieved with different laying patterns.
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.
