R-Tile find success with new patent range of interlocking floor tiles
R-Tile next generation tiles are loose lay, hidden interlocking floor tiles. These provide customers with the look and feel of ceramic but with the performance of vinyl.
All The Benefits Of Epoxy/Resin
R-Tile could see a need in the market for a more cost-effective and reliable flooring solution. The product needed to be better than epoxy/resin and still be able to provide all the benefits of a floor tile. R-Tek came up with a modern design that looked like a vinyl flooring solution.
R-Tile Work With Leading National Supermarket
R-Tile’s commitment to the commercial market lead us to work with a national supermarket chain. This lead to the birth of the R-Tile terrazzo design interlocking floor tile. This was a very stringent process which involved specific designs and health and safety tests, which resulted in numerous successful large-scale installations.
Innovative Flooring Solutions
The innovative R-Tile Design Collection tiles consist of a five step process. The first layer is an injection moulded substrate of pure, ultra-stable vinyl which includes the hidden, robust interlocking system. This is then backed with a layer of glass fibre reinforcement, then a film layer of exclusive R-Tile designs, a fourth layer of extra strong transparent vinyl is applied and then they are finished off with a matt PU protective layer.
“Hot Press” Production Method
R-Tile use the special ‘hot press’ method which involves pressing the product levels together, which results in a stiffer design. This provides advantages such as more dimensionally stable tiles and deeper colour effects. This gives the product a strong design appearance and in register embossing is possible.
Working With Leading Brands
R-Tile’s range of interlocking floor tiles are available in a wide range of supermarkets and retail chains across the UK and Europe. For example, Tesco, Asda, Spar, Costcutter and SportsDirect.
