Metropolitan Ceramics® Features and Benefits

Metropolitan Ceramics® ceramic quarry products are one of the longest lasting flooring products available. In fact, a recent study found quarry tile to be the best value among competing floor covering products based specifically on the price and longevity of the product.

Manufactured to be Durable
The extrusion process used to manufacture Metropolitan Ceramics unglazed ceramic quarry tile is combined with state-of-the art equipment and the finest raw materials. The result is an unglazed ceramic tile that is impact, abrasion, slip, and soil resisting.

Extruded & Hard Fired
Metropolitan ceramic products are extruded then hard fired making their absorption level very low and their durability level very high.

Half Inch Thickness
Manufactured from the finest raw materials, Metropolitan ceramic quarry tile is more durable than many other ceramic products. The half inch thickness gives strength that resist impact and abrasion.

Relieved Edges
Functionally this quality makes our tile less susceptible to chipping. Aesthetically the relieved edges give a soft, natural look to a finished installation.

Unglazed Surface
Metropolitan ceramic quarry tile is well suited for high traffic, multi-use commercial and residential design needs. Our tile exceeds tough standards in the industry.

Through The Body Color
Unlike some glazed tile and porcelain products, Metropolitan's "through the body" color will never wear off. As our quarry tiles age they acquire a natural patina that actually enhances their beauty and character.

Reduction Fired Character
Metropolitan Ceramics has successfully recreated the conditions that made naturally fired tile of the past so richly varied in depth of color and tone. Our Somerset line of ceramic tile products carries this wealth of character to the installations of today.
