Ceramic Tile Grades


Tile PEI Rating System is determined by the ASTM International.

Grade I
as the weakest grade of tile, Grade I tiles are normally used only for interior wall applications.

Grade II
able to withstand light traffic, Grade II tiles are ideal for spaces like bathrooms and laundry rooms.

Grade III
perfect for general residential use, Grade III tiles can be installed in higher traffic areas like kitchens and entrances. They are also suitable for lightly-trafficked commercial spaces and countertops.

Grade IV
though they are rated for commercial use, Grade IV tiles are also sometimes used in homes.  They are durable enough to handle a great deal of traffic, from bank lobbies to grocery stores.

Grade V
Created for industrial use, Grade V tiles can stand up to very heavy traffic and chemical exposure, and can be used anywhere.
