Ceramic and Porcelain tiles vary widely in color, design, surface texture and finish. Ceramic tiles can make very handsome and durable floor tile labyrinths. Our ceramic floor tile labyrinth kits have been installed in churches, fellowship halls and colleges. Ceramic and Porcelain tile floors meet ADA handicap accessible standards. Price Examples: Each Floor Labyrinth Kit is made to order and requires an individual quotation. Click here for a chart showing typical prices for three sizes.
Ceramic Tiles: Ceramic and Porcelain tiles are formed from natural clays. Production methods and finishes such as glazes vary widely. We have most often worked with 12" square tiles, though sizes and thicknesses vary as well. Sourcing Tiles: We most often work with client-supplied tiles in creating ceramic floor tile kits. Your supplier will provide us with full sets of tile in both of the two colors you select for your labyrinth. Call or email us today to receive sample sections of labyrinth designs cut in ceramic tile. Fabrication: We computer cut individual tiles in two identical grids using the labyrinth design and diameter you have selected (see Specifying tab). Each tile for your kit is assembled from the cut pieces in two colors and packed on an individual cardboard sheet. Tiles are labeled and packed in sequenced cases. Our kits are prepared for ease of installation by your flooring professional. Lead Time: Fabrication lead time varies with size, complexity and other projects in our work queue. Generally floor tile kits take a couple of weeks to one month from initial deposit receipt to completed kit. Planning and specifying usually take longer than fabrication for most institutional projects.
Floor Tile Kits Are Custom Works of Art: Each ceramic and porcelain floor tile labyrinth kit is made to order. It is an individual work of art, developed as a collaboration between you, your interior designer or architect, the flooring installer and us. A key player in the final look of your floor and its cost is the installer. We have prepared a two-page guide (click here)to the overall process, using vinyl composite tile (VCT) as the example material. Choose from 46 Labyrinth Designs: One of the best ways of choosing a design and diameter is to review our Poly Canvas Mat offerings. We are happy to offer suggestions and guidance based on our experiences with hundreds of clients. We can prepare renderings using AutoCAD architectural software showing one or more options in plan view, including details of your space such as door openings, steps and column locations.
Shipping: Kits ship from our fabrication shop via commercial truck. Freight cost varies by size of kit plus destination and type of delivery service required. Trucking costs less if you or your contractor have a dock and use a forklift for unloading the kit pallet(s). Please email us your address and requirements for a shipping quote. Installation: Floor tile kits are installed to a grid. Most designs start from the center point and work out along the main and 90 degree axis lines. Each tile in the grid needs to occupy its exact space and be square to the axis lines. The balance of the room is often completed using field color tiles of the same material.
