ok so I went off on my travels today to buy some laminate flooring, but being a woman when i got to the shop i saw something else that took my fancy shiny black floor tiles (porclain)

so i gets home and the OH tells me they will be no good :(

we have a fish tank its a fair size, weighs bout 1/2 tonne all in. now he tells me the tiles will probaby crack under the weight as the bottom which i assumed to be a flat pice actually has feet.

anybody able to give a more definitive answer than his!!!!???

If they are floor tiles then it would be very unlikely for them to crack.
If you look in most cake shops (3 cooks etc) they have at least 2 tons of kitchen equipment on their tiles.
However as a precaution could you not place something larger under the feet to spread the weight across the tiles ?
My trade is property maintenance and i have installed many bathrooms (heavy baths,toilets & basins) on top of ceramic floor tiles without any problems.
I hope this info helps.

They'll be ok if put down right.

that's what my hubby has said & he's a tiler :thumbsup: he said you would need to make sure that there was 100% coverage of adhesive under the tiles :)

Unless they are not laid correctly (ie adhesive not spread properly) or the leads have a sharp pointy end that you drop onto the tile, they should be fine.

Mind you, I'd thought this question would be better asked to the shop rather than reply on people's opinions here!

If you want a definitive answer then I would say he is probably better at laying laminate than floortiles:p
