Tiles PEI Rating

PEI 0: Wall tile only and should not be used on floors.

PEI 1: Floor coverings in areas that are walked on essentially with soft soled footwear or bare feet without scratching dirt (e.g. residential bathrooms and bedrooms without direct access from outside).

PEI 2: Floor coverings that are walked on by soft soled or ‘normal’ footwear with, at the most, occasional small amounts of scratching dirt (e.g. rooms in living areas of homes but with the exception of kitchens, entrances and other rooms which may have a lot of traffic). This does not apply to abnormal footwear (e.g. hobnail boots).

PEI 3: Floor coverings in areas that, with normal footwear are walked on more often with small amounts of scratching dirt (e.g. residential kitchens, halls, corridors, balconies). This does not apply to abnormal footwear.

PEI 4: Floor coverings in areas that are walked on by regular traffic with some scratching dirt so that the conditions are more severe than class III (e.g. entrances, commercial kitchens, hotels).

PEI 5: Floor coverings that are subject to severe pedestrian traffic over sustained periods with some scratching dirt, so that the conditions are the most severe for which glazed floor tiles may be suitable (e.g. public areas such as shopping centres, hotel foyers).
