Range 500GK pressed

Field of application

The tiles of the 500GK pressed range, made of vitrified full body stoneware, are composed of selected raw materials that allow to obtain a powder which is pressed under high pressure in steel molds, then fired at high temperature. This method of manufacture gives the tiles great dimensional stability. 

500GK tiles contain sharp-edged silica carbide grains throughout the mass, which provide a remarkably non-slip surface even under the most difficult conditions (grease-covered floor).  Tiles with anti-slip in the mass have a greater resistance to solicitations (traffic, pedestrians), as well as a greater maintenance of the level of anti-slip in time, compared to tiles whose anti-slip is obtained only by sprinkling anti-slip grains on the surface. 

Thanks to their high resistance to chemical products (acids, bases…), their mechanical resistance (impact resistance, rolling resistance, puncture resistance…), 500GK tiles are designed for the realization of industrial floor and wall coverings in highly stressed buildings. They are particularly suitable for production areas in the food industry (slaughterhouses, cutting rooms, tripe factories, minced steak factories, salting plants, ready-made meals, canning plants, fish shops).

The low water absorption of ceramic tiles also gives them a high resistance to stains, for easier floor maintenance. Despite their non-slip surfaces, 500 GK tiles are easily maintained with the use of an industrial cleaning protocol (scrubber or rotating brush). 

To maximize the life of your tiles, we recommend the use of our complete range of antacid mortars (primers, adhesive mortar FB67 or FB30, grout mortar FB60 or FB30 or OS1500, expansion joint FB50…) specially designed to fulfill your needs.

THE RANGE

Our 500GK/20 and 500GK/14 products are recommended by the French organism C.N.A.M.S.T. in collaboration with the D.G.A.L. and have been measured with a coefficient of friction at PFT (target: > 0.30) is 0.42.
The 500GK yellow tiles are available with a non-slip surface (R13) in thickness 14 or 18mm.

Size Thicknesses 500GK – Surface R13
150 x 150 mm 14 mm
150 x 150 mm 20 mm

Accessories: Coved skirtings and angles

Be careful, the K100 coved skirting and angles have changed their size in 2021! The depth of the coved skirting is reduced from 43mm to 35mm, the size of the internals and externals angles is also changed accordingly. 
The new sizes (coved skirting and angles with 35mm depth) are not compatible with the old sizes (coved skirting and angles with 43mm depth).  Contact us for more information.

The 500GK pressed tiles can be combined with two sets of coved skirting and angles (internal and external) with slightly different size: 

Coved skirting 1055 with internal angle 1058 and external angle 1038.
