Porcelain tile meets universal design and this presentation will review the latest information on using the dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF) vs. the static coefficient of friction (SCOF) for tile surfaces that meet ADA criteria. Architects will review the manufacturing of tiles, the use of recycled content, tile grading, markings and tile applications. Numerous examples of the different types of porcelain will expand the architect’s design toolkit. Mastering the art of selecting and specifying porcelain tile, architects can comfortably choose porcelain tile to provide durability and sustainability to their projects.
