Porcelain tiles are popular in the built environment space for their beautiful aesthetics as well as long-term durability. However, these tiles also deliver several environment-friendly benefits to any build.
Porcelain tiles have a low environmental impact at all stages of their production and application, from the use of naturally occurring raw materials to their disposal and recycling.
Porcelain tiles are often fabricated from materials sourced from areas close to manufacturing facilities. Their high durability and life expectancy of up to 50 years minimise waste and the need for excessive replacement. These tiles are also fully reusable and recyclable.
Porcelain tiles are also extremely energy-efficient – the high thermal inertia of porcelain tiles moderates the changes in room temperature, saving energy and reducing bills.
