Each tile is unique and comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Unfortunately not all tile is meant for all uses, some tiles are just not made for being use as floor tile. To determine how a tile should be used you should use the PEI Rating. PEI Rating indicates the tiles hardness. The rating is 1 through 5, 5 being the hardest. It is important to be sure that the tile being used for a space was meant for the space for the longest life span possible.
