Interstyle glass wall tile products are manufactured to satisfy industry standard specifications for glazed wall tile.
Interstyle glass tile products are made of pure impervious glass, and therefore have the properties of being:
Interstyle glass wall tile products have a cross-section of 4 mm or 6 mm, and its physical strengths should be compared to wall tiles of comparable thickness.
With respect to the ANSI standard A137.1-1988, Interstyle glass wall tile products satisfies the requirements of ANSI Section 6.1 (Glazed Wall Tile). The only exceptions to ANSI 6.1. are Subsection 220.127.116.11.6. (Spacers) and Subsection 18.104.22.168.3. (Thermal Shock). Interstyle glass tile products do not have lugs or spacers, and have not been tested for thermal shock failure (though this is an area that has shown no problems).
INTERSTYLE also makes glass mosaics, and their characteristics satisfy the standards set out in ANSI Section 6.2 (Glazed Ceramic Mosaic Tile). Glass mosaics satisfy all requirements, except those in Subsection 22.214.171.124.2. (Thermal Shock) and Subsection 126.96.36.199.10. (Coefficient of Friction). Glass mosaics have not been tested for thermal shock. In addition, the COBBLETONES glass mosaics (mosaics made from 1 x 1" chips of recycled glass) may not meet the limits of variance regarding warpage and facial dimensions (Subsection 188.8.131.52.5./184.108.40.206.6.). It is the lack of consistency in the visual characteristics of the refired chips which gives COBBLETONES their unique appearance. All of the other glass mosaics made by INTERSTYLE meet the requirements of these two particular subsections.Back to technical
