I'd like to know who signed off on using >pavers/tile in supermarkets,
especially with the huge grout lines. Don't you think they'd want a flat
surface so that customers have a >nice relaxing experience and might
want to hang out longer? I can't wait to get out any areas with pavers
(typically the produce >department and sometimes the bakery) to get away
from the clunk clunk clunk of the shopping cart wheels. If they think
that they make >people slow down in those departments, it doesn't work
They use clay tile for three main reasons- style, easy upkeep, and
reduced slip'n'fall accidents. The 12" commercial vinyl? tile that most
stores had for last 40-some years, with normal commercial wax on top, is
very slippery when wet. In produce section, a single dropped grape can
put a customer on their ass. In wet/winter weather, low person on
employee totem pole spends pretty much their entire shift pushing the
mop bucket around. The clay tile has a matte surface, and only needs a
deep cleaning/sealing every few months. You can wet-mop all day, and it
is safe to walk on in seconds.
