Argelith Bodenkeramik – The Specialist in Hygienic Floors

Producers of food and beverages expect their industrial floors to remain permanently hygienic over years despite chemical and mechanical influences. The German manufacturer Argelith Bodenkeramik has specialized in this niche market and proved able to match these requirements over several decades.

With the right planning of construction, difficult and cost-intensive repairs of floors can be avoided. A hexagonal tile floor is the perfect solution in order to meet the requirements in the following three production areas.

Hygienic Areas

Hygienic requirements after HACCP are a challenge for industrial floors. Argelith tiles are up to18mm thick and resistant to acids and caustics. Tiles from Argelith are unglazed and slip resistant, but at the same time permanently stain resistant and easy to clean thanks to very low water absorption. At this level no other manufacturer can compete with the high quality from Argelith.

Wet Areas

The Hexalith® tile has proven to be useful in wet areas. Thanks to its almost round shape one can create any kind of slopes. In the past, wide joints and overlippings on high and low points caused tile chippings. Furthermore, sewage stayed in the wide joints so that chemicals damaged the joints on an ongoing basis. Wide joints are a real paradise for bacteria.

Exact calibration of Argelith’s hexagonal tiles reduces the joints down to a necessary minimum of approximately 2.5mm.

Driveways

In areas with daily fork lift traffic a thick tile and narrow joints are essential to guarantee a durable, heavy duty floor. Argelith tiles of 18mm thickness are very size accurate and can be laid butt-jointed. They withstand the highest mechanical point loads.

The hexagonal shape offers optimal protection for the floor as dynamic loads occur in pointed angles towards tile edges and so tile edge impacts are reduced down to a minimum.
