Ceramic floors and tiling

Kemtile is the exclusive UK applicator for Kagetec Tiling Systems, a high-performance tiling system engineered in Germany by Van Koetsveld & Grimberg GmbH. The Kagetec basic system is the equal of, if not superior to any vibration fixed tiling system available in the UK.

Kagetec GFK

Kagetec GFK is the system that is used on the majority of Kemtile projects. The combination of vibration tiling and a plastic mesh reinforced epoxy adhesive layer between the tiles and the bedding medium makes the GFK system one of the toughest floors available. Every tile is encased in epoxy resin. If the grout is damaged the tile bedding is protected. It is ideal for very wet areas due to its totally impervious substrate. A typical Kagetec GFK floor is between 80 and 90mm thick including the tile.

Kagetec Basic System (BS)

Kagetec Basic System is an economic and hygienic tiled floor system featuring quick installation and high mechanical and load-bearing properties.

Kagetec AR

Kagetec AR is able to withstand the extremes of thermal, mechanical and chemical stresses. It is laid directly onto power floated concrete slabs which results in a minimum increase in floor levels.

Kagetec AntiStatic System (AS)

Kagetec Anti-Static System is designed specifically for use in industries where build up of static electricity must be avoided, such as pharmaceutical or electronics industries.

Argelith Bodenkeramik

Kemtile has been working with Argelith since 2007 and enjoys a strong relationship with the German company. Argelith's classic hexagonal tiles are extremely dense and vitrified, making them durable with very low water absorption, which makes them the ideal choice for hygienic environments such as food and drink manufacturing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you supply and install both ceramic tile and resin flooring systems?

Kemtile is one of the few companies that can install both of these types of flooring systems, which means we're well placed to advise customers on the right one to meet their needs. This often means combining both to meet specific performance and cost requirements. What's more, both finishes can be complemented by the installation of stainless steel drainage from Wiedemann-Technik (link), a leading supplier to the food industry for over 50 years.

Why are your tiles different to any others?

Our Kagetec ceramic floor tiling system is unique, not only in terms of its appearance, but also in how it's installed and the performance qualities it offers. Where possible, we only install 18mm thick mvtec tiles from German manufacturer Argelith with our Kagetec systems. These mvtec tiles are fully vitrified and extremely hard, which means that they're durable, making them an ideal tiling choice for hygienic food and drink manufacturing e

What colours are your resin floors available in?

The standard range of Ucrete polyurethane flooring is available in eight colourways: red, yellow, orange, green, cream, grey, green-brown, and blue.

What colours do the tiles come in?

Argelith ceramic tiles come in a limited colour range as the tiles are made from naturally occurring clays.

How quick can you do the job? When can I use the floor?

It really depends on the type of job and what the project entails. At Kemtile we do everything from minor weekend shutdown work to more extensive refurbishments and new builds. It is our bespoke approach to each project that sets us apart from our competition. Just tell us your timing requirements and we always try to meet them. We appreciate that it is not always easy to close production lines, which makes Ucrete, in particular, an excellent hygienic flooring solution when timescales are tight.

Which chemicals will Ucrete resist?

Ucrete Polyurethane flooring offers excellent chemical resistance from strong acids, the likes of acetic, lactic, oleic, citric and sodium hydroxide, as well as alkalis, fats, oils and solvents, all of which can rapidly degrade other types of resin flooring.

Will the floor withstand the weight of fork lift trucks?

By working with only the highest quality suppliers, all of the flooring systems that we install. including drainage channels. are able to withstand the most rigorous manufacturing environments. This includes the constant wear and tear of fork lift trucks along with trollies, kegs and barrels, for example.

How do I clean the floor?

We provide bespoke cleaning recommendations for both resin and tiled floors as all applications vary.

Can you provide a floor that can be removed easily at the end of my lease?

For many of our customers, especially breweries, flooring and drainage specification is dictated by lease agreements, which usually stipulate that premises must be left in exactly the same condition as they were upon arrival. As most premises have a concrete floor, itself not able to withstand the demands of the rigorous brewing process, flooring is a necessary investment. We usually recommend our Kagetec ceramic floor tiling system in these situations as it is easier to remove than Ucrete resin.

Can you put resin on top of tiles?

Yes, we can, but each case is determined individually, and a site survey is required to determine the suitability of the underlying cement flooring as a base.

Can you overlay resin with tiles?

Yes, we can, but each case is determined individually, and a site survey is required to determine the suitability of the underlying cement flooring as a base.

Is there a strong odour when installing flooring systems?

Generally, not. We always try to use low odour, non-taint products where possible due to the environments that we work in.

What size gully do I need?

The size of gulley would be determined by a site survey. It is usually determined by flow rates and size of outlet.

What size channel do I need?

The size of channel would be determined by a site survey. It is usually determined by flow rates and size of outlet.

When will I get my quote?

We always try to respond with a quote within seven days.

Is there a minimum size for a flooring projects you undertake?

No, there isn't. No floor is too large or small.
